Ah jah jah, open gay rights society, teacha fi di ghetto youths dem, alrite

Tired fi see another muda' cry,
Wi alone face di sacrifice,
But no matter wah dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive,
Wi hol' di faith alone from sun up till sun rise,
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize,
But no matter wah dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive (well alright)

Mi born and mi raise inna di ghetto yeah,
Hungry nights, hungry days weh mi haffi face,
Mi lef school without nuh subjects,
Society nuh show nuh interest,
Everyday inna di ghetto ah di same ting,
Survival, survival of di fittest,
Babylon, nuh give we access
Suh bredda against bredda inna rat race

Mi watch mi granny bring di money tru di church door
She seh di pastor tell har seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky but mi doan sure
Cah mi don't si nuh brochure (all mi see ah ghetto youth ah die)

Tired fi see another motha' cry,
Wi alone face di sacrifice,
But no matter wah dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive,
Hol' di faith alone from sun up till sun rise,
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorise,
But no matter wah dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive, (well alright)

Mi really wan fi nuh where is the future,
Fi Jamaica and di whole ah dem ghetto youth ya,
Bright girl, she nah've nuh fadda,
Fi pay di school fee, she nah've ah muda',
Suppose yuh hear seh she turn a dirty dancer,
Suppose yuh hear seh she turn a dirty dancer,
Society, why yuh mek di crime eat away di ghetto like a cancer?
Mi wa' yuh answer

Mi watch mi granny bring di money tru di church door
She say di pastor tell har seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky but mi doan' sure
Cah mi don't si nuh brochure, (all mi see ah ghetto youth ah die)

Tired fi see another muda'cry,
Wi alone face di sacrifice,
But no matter wah dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive,
Hol' di faith alone from sun up till sun rise,
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize,
But no matter wha' dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive, (well alright)

Ghetto youth from Jamaica,
Trinidad an' Antigua
Venezula, Belize and Cuba
Mi bredda dem inna angola,
Zimbabwe, black soldier,
Palestine, gaza,
Children

Tired fi see another motha' cry,
We alone face di sacrifice,
But no matter wha' dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive,
Hol' di faith alone from sun up till sun rise,
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize,
But no matter wha' dem say,
Ghetto youth haffi still survive, (well alright)
