BUSY SIGNALTrading Places Lyrics
Switch it, just use your imagination. heh
Ghetto living uptown, uptown living in the garrison,(Talking)
Eeh! It wouldn't be easy, could never be easy, not at all, aaaah.
Yeah! A nuh disrespect, is jus people living other peoples footsteps, it's more like a reality check. yuh nah mean. hah
Imagine uptown people a live inna the ghetto fi a week, Week
Down town move gone inna the uptown town area things nice proper English dem a speak.
Uptown people could a neva stand it when the pipe dem a leak, Leak
First of all dem nuh know how filight, Nuh wah use the igloo with the ice them use to fridge life.
Picture Portia a live a Spain,
Picture Bruce Golding live a hundred lane,
Picture me, way richer dan Mattalon,
While him live a Kentire pon piece a capture land,
Picture Michael Lee-Chin hold off the gully side Him and the thugs dem a bleach so yuh cah go beside,
Picture, Bush Stewart a wipe car glass and a ask fi the change weh yuh got, Nooo, nooo.
It wouldn't be easy trading places with the ghetto,
It wouldnt be easy fi hear rich people voice a echo
It wouldn't be easy, it wouldnt be nice
To see us rise give dem a surprise and mek dem knoe we also can live these life.
What if Sizzla was commissioner,
Police couldnt arrest we fi a spliff
If alliance was National Security
Nuh body could never violate nor slip,
Suppose uptown people affi nyam chicken back and tun cornmeal go see dem wid finger a lick, now,
Imagine if ghetto youth a go a di ATM fi go draw cash uptown youths a pocket dem a pick, nooo, ayee
Me say we cah separate we self, uptown down town come mek we elevate we self,
Street knowledge it mek me educate miself fi be wiser, eh
Mi say we cah separate we self, uptown down town come mek we elevate we self,
Street knowledge mek me educate miself fi be wiser.
It wouldn't be easy uptown trading places with the ghetto,
It wouldnt be easy
To hear rich people voice a echo it wouldn't be easy
It wouldnt be nice to see us rise give dem a surprise and mek dem knoe we can also live these life.
Picture dat, it wouldn't be easy, wouldn't be nice, no,
Could never be easy, trading places couldn't be nice, no, eehh, Busy!
Couldn't be nice, believe me nuh, wouldn't be nice, people.
Imagine uptown people living in the ghetto fi a week, A Week,
Down town move gone inna the uptown town area things nice proper english dem a speak.
Its so real, make me just talk da part ya (laughing).
Listen mi keenly; picture PJ at the studio a look a buss' as a dj (laugh),
Picture Pickersgill at the bus stop a bawl seh the sun hot
Dem eva guh tru dat? (laugh) hear mi nuh! Unite, live
