Youth Of Eglington
Black Uhuru Lyrics


The youths of Eglinton
Won't put down their Remington
The youth of Brixton
They bave their 45 Smith and
Wesson pistol pistol
The youth of Utica Avenue
They just can't keep cool
So much gun shot some
cripple some turn fool
They are responsible for a lot
of children
And they need food
And they want to go to school

I say the youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
I say the youth of Kingston
Won't leave their Magnum
pistol pistol
A very thin line to start the crime
Who will be the first to
volunteer
You love you love your fuckery
Get up and get yourself together
You hear the words of Jah Jah
coming from the hill top of
Dabra Dabra
Keep you strength

The youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
I say the youth of Brixton
They put down their 45 Smith
and Wesson pistol pistol

Stop and listen
They want you to fight the good fight
But save you strength
For strength of life
The youths in Africa
All a dem a thriller

I say the youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
The youth of Kingston
Won't leave their Magnum
pistol pistol
Poor Jill she was a spill
she got hit by a stray shot

The youths of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
The youths of Brixton
They put down their 45 Smith
and Wesson pistol pistol

See blood, we mean no harm blood

The youths of Eglinton
Won't put down their Remington
The youth of Brixton
They have their 45 Smith and
Wesson pistol, pistol!

The youth of Utica Avenue
They just can't keep cool
So much gun shot, some cripple, some turn fool
They are responsible for a lot of children
And they need food
And they want to go to school

I say the youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
I say the youth of Kingston
Won't leave their Magnum
Pistol, pistol..

A very thin line to start the crime
Who will be the first to volunteer?
You love, you love your mockery
Get up and get yourself together
You hear the words of Jah Jah
Coming from the hill top, of Dabra Dabra
Keep you strength

The youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
I say the youth of Brixton
They put down their 45 Smith
And Wesson pistol pistol

(..)

Stop and listen
They want you to fight the good fight
But save you strength
For strength of life
The youths in Africa
All a dem a thriller

I say the youth of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
The youth of Kingston
Won't leave their Magnum
Pistol, pistol..

Poor Jill she was a spill
She got hit by a stray shot

The youths of Eglington
Won't put down their Remington
The youths of Brixton
They put down their 45 Smith
And Wesson pistol, pistol..

I saw them with The Clash at Exhibition Stadium in the mid-eighties....the days of committed brilliant music

I like Bob Marley, but I LOVE Black Uhuru. These guys are beyond underrated. They should have been huge.

Junior Richards

They were big and not underpromoted . Won the first reggae Grammy and toured the world

Luther Ronson

Their sound was (and still is) unprecedented. Still playing this brilliant stuff to this day and I NEVER tire of it!
