Popcaan - The System

Sad to say
But...

White people a bawl
Indian people a bawl
Black people a bawl
Chinese people a bawl
System design fi set we up
Yeaaaah
Dem give we the guns, then dem same one come wet we up

Dre Skull, wha' the system do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Wha' dem do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothing at all, yeah
We've been suffering from we small

So
Some think say a bed a rose
True pretty clothes inna me closet
None a dem nah see me pain
Furthermore, dem never ask yet
Silence a the baddest weapon
So you know wha' me do, me talk less
Man a work every day down a wharf
And a three grand a week dem a accept
Dem no waan me fi build mama house
Don't waan me fi own no assets
Sufferation everywhere me turn
So give thanks to Jah when you pass it
So, ghetto youth, don't make silly plans
Believe in yourself, be a man
Dem waan we fi dead 'pon the road
Dem don't waan we fi make billions

Dre Skull, wha' the system do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Wha' dem do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothing at all, yeah
We've been suffering from we small

So
If we sell weed, a problem that
If we do a robbery, a problem that
The whole world a pray fi the problem stop
Nobody don't cater fi solving that
Innocent youth a receive gunshot
Mama haffi dress up inna white and black
Oh God...
Me tired fi go a Dovecot

White people a bawl
Indian people a bawl
Black people a bawl
Chinese people a bawl
System design fi set we up
Yeaaaah
Dem give we the guns
Then dem same one come wet we up
Yaaaaa

Dre Skull, wha' the system do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Wha' dem do fi ghetto youth? Nothing
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothing at all, yeah
We've been suffering from we small

So
If we sell weed, a problem that
If we do a robbery, a problem that
The whole world a pray fi the problem stop
Nobody don't cater fi solving that
Innocent youth a receive gunshot
Mama haffi dress up inna white and black
Oh God...
Me tired fi go a Dovecot

Ghetto youth...
Believe in yourself, -self, -self
Ghetto youth...
Believe in yourself, be a man
Ghetto youth...
Believe in yourself, be a man
Believe in yourself, -self, -self
Believe in yourself, be a man
Believe in yourself, yourself, yourself
Believe in yourself, be a man
