Emergency, we a suffer roun ere
Roun ere, man a ded, tings tougher roun ere
Crime scene gone up, tall up man ah go fa roun ere
Missa man, whe yu doing fi the gutter roun ere?
Two party, but ah de same sad song dem a play
Poor people money lean back and rockaway
Dem raise everyting from oil to Craven A
So how dem no raise up everybody pay
Portmore mi born and ah de so mi yard stay
So mi nah pay no toll fi cross the Causeway
Mr. Bruce, Mr. PJ
This is just a couple question from Addi the deejay
[Question:] Kingston mek no AK?
[Question:] How gun come inna JA?
Who own the wharf and the airport, the docks and the bay?
Everyting except ded people ah raise
De dead man ah 'sehe' him betta off inna the grave
How we fi save pon minimum wage
When two yute go high school, two go all age?
Dem change dem face like Nicholas Cage
True election ah come, dem temporary re-arrange
Mi rate Bruce, mi rate PJ
But dem waan we ded off like dog weh have mange
Mi born a sufferer, when it ah go change?
Mi love Portia Simpson, mi love Babsy Grange
But if dem nuh tun a new page
We nah wear no red or no green again
We ah wear beige
Fi de yute dem a de stoplight, mi a beg oonu a change
Oonu dog a live betta dan dem, oonu outrage
Yu know how much innocent yute dem a hundred man inna de cage
