You Mad
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Talk about the housing situation
Terrible nightmare for everyone
Endless struggles
For young couples
Pure frustration
Created by this artificial inflation

The cost of land so high it will drive
You mad
If you think you could get through and don't connive
You mad
If you think on the salary you could survive
You mad
When things improve if you'll be alive
You mad

Things that are duty free costing you more money
Consumer protection is so bad it will drive you mad

To build a house you can't get cement
Scandalous price they charging for rent
Slumlords ain't care
They do no repair Ghetto style you live
With roaches and rats?.
If you think one bed cannot sleep five
You mad
And don't think this is something that I contrive
You mad
If you don't know it's husband, children and wife
You mad
If you can't see they live like bees in a hive
You mad
With no alternative
That's how poor people live

Don't you feel sad to know things so bad
It could drive you mad

Government build a few two room flats
You have to win lottery to get that
For young newly weds,
Situation dread
They sleep together
Sometime by he mother Sometime by she father

If you believe I just talking jive
You mad
You think it easy in this town to try
You mad
Perhaps you think its you one getting deprive
You mad
Or maybe you think I don't want you to strive
You mad

I tired to begging lodging,
I plan to start squatting
In the police back yard,
Make him rob and go staring mad

Inland Tenants association
Want government to acquire land
Those who possess
And have land in excess
Subsidize the price
To sell to poor people who couldn't buy otherwise

So you think faith in the system has been revived
You mad
Proposals like that can't take a nose dive
You mad
Opposition to the bill would never be rife
You mad
At last the people have won the stripe
You mad
But political wars, have citizen outdoors
Too compromise for them is too hard, so we going mad

Sparrow was a lyrical and melody master with a voice as clear as a bell and the ability to fit any number of words into a single bar of music. Genius!!

Eden Charles

Still relevant in 2019.

~ Lyrics below. The lyric in asterisk I think is incorrect. Otherwise all else is good.

Talking 'bout the housing situation
Terrible nightmare for everyone
Endless troubles
For young couples
Your frustration
Created by this artificial inflation
The cost ah land so high it could drive...you mad
If you think you could get through and don't connive...you mad
If you think on the salary you could survive... you mad
When things improve if you'll be alive... you mad
Things that are duty free
Costing you more money
Consumer protection is so bad
It could drive you mad

To build a house you can't get cement
Scandalous price dey charging for rent
Slumlords ain't care
Dey do no repair
Ghetto style you live
With roaches and rats with rent so prohibitive
If you think one bed cannot sleep five... you mad
And don't think it is something that I contrive...you mad
If you don't know with husband, children and wife... you mad
If you can't see they live like bees in a hive...you mad
With no alternative
That's how good people live
Don't you feel sad to know things so bad
It could drive you mad

Government build a few two-room flats
You ha to win lottery to get that
For young newlyweds
Situation dread
Dey sleep together
Sometimes by he mother, sometimes by she father
If you believe I just talking jive...you mad
You think it easy in this town to thrive... You mad
Perhaps you think is you one getting deprived... You mad
Or maybe you don't think I want you to strive... you mad
Ah tired begging lodging
Ah plan to start squatting
In the police backyard
Making *bad* Ah go steering mad

Opposition to the bill will never be rife...you mad
At last the people have won the strife...you mad
But political wars

To compromise for them is too hard
So we going mad
