Chocolate Face Lyrics

[Dirt Gritie:]
As a young buck I grew up tell me if you relate
In a school system where there was hardly another race
But still I shine I recognized
Nine times out of ten it was me they recognized
Even if they never saw me commit a crime
The color of my skin stands out in the mind
So now it is time to decide
How I will be perceived and recognized
As a thuggy, hustler from the gutty
When I can be more then what the world expects of me
A leader, a scholar like Frederick D
Or inspire generations like Booker T
About my heroes nobody told me
Used to think being Jamaican is what black means
Slang, prison and baggy jeans
This is the black media painted me

[Chorus: Oozeela]
From the time wi gwan a foreign you know say that my life's about to change
From the time we reach the town them all a call me chocolate face
You know a so me born and you know say a so me stay
But them say
Gwan with your chocolate face
Oozee gwan with your chocolate face

[Arlo Maverick:]
Black babies that grew in the 80s
Weren't privy to the treatment my color see lately
Take the bitter with the sweet, and look for balance
The innocence of my childhood, corrupt by challenge
It should of been about going and playing
What should a 5-year-old kid know about racism?
Visible minority they made that clear
I had a chocolate face and carpet hair
Instead of making it seem like were all one race
They let you know that you're different from a very young age
From the looks you get to the names that you're called
Kids could be cruel but is their fault?
Where does this come, tell me cousin?
Why they making jokes about me being burnt in the oven?
Eventually it takes a toll on the minds of children
Who hate themselves for being different

[Chorus: Oozeela]
From the time wi gwan a foreign you know say that my life's about to change
From the time we reach the town them all a call me chocolate face
You know a so me born and you know say a so me stay
But them say
Gwan with your chocolate face
Oozee gwan with your chocolate face

[S.T.U.G.A:]
Il a traversé l atlantique des antilles
Abords d'un nuages magique fantastique
Vers un pays du nord de l'amerique
Venant d un petit coin de mère afrique
Il avait des rêves magnifique et des contes
Historique, mais dois vivre des études académiques
Sur sa passion qui est la musique, la musique, (Face de sexy chocolat)
Sur sa passion qui est la musique
Fréquanter des écoles, 1, 2, 3, 4, lave toi la face
1, 2, 3, 4 lave toi la face
Fréquanter des écoles, 1, 2, 3, 4, lave toi la face
1, 2, 3, 4 lave toi la face, choco, c hoco, choco
Choco, choco, éuh, éuh, choco, choco, éuh, éuh, éuh
Chocolat MAMA ÉÉÉ
Chocolat MAMA ÉÉÉ
Bomba club this is S.T.U.G.A.

[Chorus: Oozeela]
From the time wi gwan a foreign you know say that my life's about to change
From the time we reach the town them all a call me chocolate face
You know a so me born and you know say a so me stay
But them say
Gwan with your chocolate face
Oozee gwan with your chocolate face

[Oozeela:]
Out of all the men on earth she said she wanted to date me
But this loving that she gave me was so humiliating
She gave me everything that Jah Jah could have created
But the forces all around us did it all to prevent it
She really, really loved me when she said it she meant it
I really, really loved her and the time that we spent
But I could never buy the ring for me to take she away
'Cause daddy nah want grandchild with a chocolate face
So I said... "Yes I am a Natty Dread but the gals them love me still
All sizes and colours "but this is what he said...
"Although you might find me weird you're the coolest man I've met
But I just cannot say yes go find someone else instead! "
But what does it matter if we all bleed red?
What does it matter if we all sleep dead?
What does it matter if we all are created?
What does it matter?

[Chorus: Oozeela]
From the time wi gwan a foreign you know say that my life's about to change
The time we reach the town them all a call me chocolate face
You know a so me born and you know say a so me stay
But them say
Gwan with your chocolate face
Oozee gwan with your chocolate face
