about

Starting with Capleton chanting down Babylon, Fantan Mojah welcomes the listener to ‘the streets of the tough life’, declaring ‘To survive in the streets, them ask how we do it? We tell them, No surrender, no retreat!” Sizzla voices a war-cry for the poor and oppressed in Jamaica, as he calls on both the young and old to stand up and 'make your life better’, encouraging his Jamaican community to stay positive, work hard and find a way out of poverty and sufferation.

lyrics

Intro / Capleton

Babylon days are numbered
I see dem a fall and slumber
I heard dem a bawl and blunder
So easily dem going down.
Babylon days are numbered
I see dem a fall and slumber
I hear dem a bawl and blunder
So easily dem going down.

Verse 1 / Fantan Mojah

Welcome to the streets of the tough life
As a warrior me grow up wid a rough life
When wi touch di caana, we nuh run drama
Real gangsta nuh love spotlight
When me step to the food no joke about it
Hot fire start blaze and dem cyan come out it
Anything inna me way betta move
Cause if you mek a move to me place.

Chorus / Sizzla

And me say bless up fi di poor
Make your, make your life better
Money fi di poor me say, and through the weather
Bless up fi di poor
Make your, make your life better
Better, better, better

Verse 2 / Capleton

Hey Babylon a crosses
Well a di wrong set a youths dem go fass wid
Woi! Dem a snake under grass wid
Nuff a dem guh go bow to the bosses
Well a fireman a bun dem ago scorch wid
So we ago bun dem to ashes
A nuff youths dem have as hostage
Say dem wah fi shoot dem like a portage
Wid dem cartage
(Deh one yah name)

CHORUS

Verse 3 / Sizzla

Poor people a suffer so long me observe it
Morning to night dem a offer them service
Do it for the children, well make sure preserve it
Poor people more than willing and worthy
Give dem everything and give dem more than that
Give dem everything, and di dem more pan that
Poor people foundation, and me sure bout that
From the floor to the top.

CHORUS

Verse 4 / Fantan Mojah

Gangster rules, affi know how fi hunt fi eat
You affi pressure the road, seven day a di week
To survive in the streets, them ask how we dweet
Tell them no surrender, me say no retreat
We living in the days of the mob
Ain’t no informing ting
Don’t call the 5-0
They will kill you for the money weh you have
When you hand the gold to make the dough
You better lie low.

Bridge / Sizzla

Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere

CHORUS

Pray for the best
Pray for the best
Pray for the best
Pray for the best
