Striker, Sustain and Cool Face(Selassie I)
(Ching)(Eh)
?? (mmm) mamma say

One fake fren
Is worse dan a thousand enemies(Notice)
Mi waan good fren
Will always deh deh to di end(Hilltop)

Cause when nuttin nah gwaan
And all a di fake dem gone
True friends deh ya same way
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way
Cah when di money nah run
And all a di flossin dun
True friends deh ya sameway
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way

So mi just a big up who fi big up
Shout out who fi get shout out
Cause a one ting mi nah hav doubt bout
Real friends yuh cyan figet bout
My friend dem tell mi nuh fi give up
Dont get weak and get weary
Dem seh fi fight like Chris Brown and Riri
Send it out pon yuh twitter
And broadcast this pon yuh BB

Cause when nuttin nah gwaan
And all a di fake dem gone
True friends deh ya same way
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way
Cah when di money nah run
And all a di flossin dun
True friends deh ya same way
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way

Have some fren weh u rate but dem nuh rate u
Have some fren weh u love but dem a hate u
Some a dem weh set u up some a dem weh beat u
Get u inna trouble mek u end up inna jail too
But my real friends betta dan pocket money
Fake friends always I?? funny
Friends like those mi nuh wanna dem round wi
Snowy rainy or sunny

Cause when nuttin nah gwaan
And all a di fake dem gone
True friends deh ya same way
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way
Cah when di money nah run
And all a di flossin dun




True friends deh ya same way
Real true friends a guh always deh ya same way

Overall Meaning

The song "Real Friends" by Munga highlights the importance of having genuine, supportive friends that will always be there for you, even when times get tough. Munga emphasizes the idea that having fake friends can be worse than having enemies, and that true friends will stay by your side through thick and thin. He acknowledges that there are some people in your life that you may rate highly, but they don't necessarily rate you the same way, and that there are others who may seem like friends but are secretly working against you. Despite this, Munga urges listeners to value and cherish their real friends, because they are truly priceless.


The lyrics of the song are simple, yet powerful. Munga's use of the phrase "same way" throughout the song emphasizes the consistency and reliability of real friends. He also references popular culture, like Chris Brown and Rihanna's relationship, to drive home the idea that true friends will motivate and support you, even in the most difficult times. The song's overall message is one of gratitude and appreciation for the people in your life who have your back.
