[Intro]
Yeah, can't even trust your neighbour (chuh)
Dem a days yah (days yah)
Unno better look out, look out, yes
Yeah, can't even trust your neighbour, no (neighbour)
Mother 'gainst father

[Verse 1]
Dem say me daunted, cah me no trust man
And I no take, not a check from no one
Nuff a friend-enemy and dem, many, many
And true, plenty money dem gone funny, funny
Give me a smile ah disguise dem quick fi call ya down
But we never see dem true intention, no
Friend-enemy and dem many, many
Dem fight His Majesty, waan fi damage me

Smile inna your face

No waan dem inna me face
Cah dem a backbiter, trap setter

[Verse 2]
They only come with smiling faces when they want
To reap off your farm

Dem come and skin dem teeth when dem meet and greet
The children in the street
Dem will tear you to pieces

Cah dem a backbiter, trap setter
Smile inna your face
