Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

One shot, one shot is all you got
Me dey fu remind you in case you forgot
Ah nuh my time lost, tell me what de cost
Try fu buy out my family and friends pon my block
Have I thought about what?
Said I would have flopped
Brown skinned girl with de flavour pon top
Talk a whole heap a trash
Buh my mode pon bash
Ah no my price that, you know that type of cash
What a boy run fast
Expect de crash
You no respect de scene, me ah come 'round your stash
'Cause a boy done crash
Bare flash back to da time when you did say you done have me back

And I want to be free, free, free
And I just want to be me, me, me

Ready when you ready
What you got to say
Hold on steady, no let me get away
But me dun know already
Them bad mind ways
Make you sharp and edgy what make you get away
Okay, think I got to find another way
Me no have time fu spend dey a play inna your game
Cuh you're lame
Mash up de place, and pass de blame
'Cause a your fault that, de way you ignite de flame
Them tell me say you calling my name, better watch who talk to and mind what you say
Me fu make you have a ransom to pay
You no watch who you run to again and again

And I want to be free, free, free
And I just want to be me, me, me

Well, if you wanted your heart then why you gimme it?
Should have tell me from start you na no deal with it
'Cause now me no go down 'cause of who you dealing with
That ah di wrong type of pack and you no seeing it
But ah one shot, memba me tell you that
One day you go open up your heart and understand
Alpha of de pack, kia be pon top
Master mind energy ah watch from de back

And I want to be free, free, free
And I just got to be me, me, me

One shot, one shot is all you got
Me dey fu remind you in case you forgot
Ah nuh my time lost, tell me what de cost
Try fu buy out my family and friends pon my block
Thought about what?
Said I would have flopped
Brown skinned girl, flavour pon top
Talk a whole heap a trash
Buh my mode pon bash
Ah no my price that, you know that type of cash
What a boy run fast
Expect de crash
You no respect de scene, me ah come 'round your stash




'Cause a boy done crash
Bare flash back to da time when you did say you done have me back
