Hey you leaders,

You ever check out them place? You ever look ina dem hungry face?

Chorus:
A through the ghetto me walk an see the hardship of the people, dem dung deh a suffer,
A through the ghetto me walk, weh society have mad man a live ina the gutter,
A through the ghetto me walk, weh man kill off each other fi eat bread and butter,
A through the ghetto me walk, to the government people a protest say things a get rougher.

Pre chorus:
Who feels it knows, me cyaa get nuh work from none a di politicians,
Who feels it knows, dem a kill off the youths dem wid dem guns and ammunitions,
Who feels it knows, the government nuh care bout the people’s requisitions,
Who feels it knows, everyday a jus blackness show pon the television,

Verse 1:
Man from tivoli and payneland, august town, papine and juezland,
Poor people want compensation, waterhouse, seaview and riverton,
100 A grantspen, waltham youths a face descrimination,
Grant them a new elevation, babylon a slave us from birth and creation,
Ghetto people have the rights to survival, we need security for the new generation,
Out of many people we are one nation, we need repartuation, whoa now.

A through the ghetto me walk an see the hardship of the people, dem dung deh a suffer,

Take heed babylon, hear the population cry, when it a go stop, when it a go stop,
Revolution a hang over you headtop and lightning a go clap, thunder a go drop,

The youths them nah get no justice down here, a soso gunshot a pure gunshot.
