People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

And I know all the things you hide
Even though it's a good disguise
And I see all the things you do
But what you do will come back to you
You think we can't fight what the eyes can't see
Because you think we are blind in poverty

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

It's like you wants the people to kill
And fire gunshots and burn buildings to hell
No, after that you aren't gonna treat me well
It's like you have the people under a spell, Mr Devil
Talking to the people in the congress
A we vote you in, so you better do you best because
After that there's no contest
It's the state of the union address

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

Broadcasting lies on the television screen
Trying to get us hooked on your American dream
Up on your games if you know when you'll win
When you cheated on your wife with your moneys and your scheme
Thief will rule and no doubt he'll be followed
We are no fool and no call me no nigga
Do a good term and you deserve another
Signed musically yours, the general sleepywonder

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should

People in the misery
Government or work or government
It makes a mockery
Respect to the youths
When they're in front and all dem back a me
Why you don't treat them like the way you should
