Ghetto Youth
Vybz Kartel Lyrics


Ah jah jah
Open, their rise society
Teacha fi di ghetto youth dem
Alright

Tired fi see another muda' cry
Wi alone face di sacrifice
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi st'il survive
We hol' di faith alone from sun up 'til sun rise
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive (well alright)

Mi born and mi raise inna di ghetto yeah
Hungry nights, hungry days weh mi haffi face
Mi lef' school without no subjects
Society nuh show nuh interest
Everyday inna di ghetto ah di same ting
Survival, survival of di fittest
Babylon, nuh give we access
So bredda 'gainst bredda inna rat race

Mi watch mi granny bring di money tru di church door
She say di pastor tell har seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky but mi don't sure
Cah mi don't see no brochure
(All mi see ah ghetto youth ah die)

Tired fi see another muda' cry
Wi alone face di sacrifice
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi st'il survive
We hol' di faith alone from sun up 'til sun rise
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive

Mi really wan' fi nuh where is the future
Fi Jamaica and di whole ah dem ghetto youth, 'ya
Bright girl, she nah've nuh fadda
Fi pay di school fee, she nah've ah muda'
Suppose yuh hear seh she turn a dirty dancer
Suppose yuh hear seh she turn a dirty dancer
Society, why yuh mek di crime eat away di ghetto like a cancer?
Mi wa' yuh answer

Mi watch mi granny bring di money tru di church door
She say di pastor tell har seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky but mi don't sure
Cah mi don't see no brochure
(All mi see ah ghetto youth ah die)

Tired fi see another muda' cry
Wi alone face di sacrifice
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi st'il survive
We hol' di faith alone from sun up 'til sun rise
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive (well alright)

Ghetto youth from Jamaica
Trinidad an' Antigua
Venezula, Belize, and Cuba
Mi bredda dem inna Angola
Zimbabwe, black soldier
Palestine, Gaza
Children

Tired fi see another muda' cry
Wi alone face di sacrifice
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi st'il survive
We hol' di faith alone from sun up 'til sun rise
Ah we dem prosecute and terrorize
But no matter wah dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive (well alright)

Tears in my eyes. Kartels always been like oracle/psychic. They never judge you by all your works, never the good especially. Hol yuh head Kartel. So sorry for your predicament, but you're being prayed for by real clean hearted ppl. The power that be always win, especially against some1 they've been vetted against for a while. Too bad you didnt think they hated uyou THIS much. Therell never be another you. Bless the tears of your & your co-accused families. Love always. #FreeAdijahPalmer

+Victoria Monroe your an example of love & insight. what you said had me thinking of when the feds locked Tommy Chong up for nothing really. Such a brilliant actor he was, still had the police fooled. It was a waste of everyone's time except for one half of cheech & chong. Those cops actually thought they did society a favor. He's a legend & weed is about to be legal in 14 states I think.
