DRIVE BY SHOOTING



Drive By Shooting



 



Mama cry Papa cry when them hear them little youth die



Innocent bystander in a drive by shooting



In the middle of the night



That
no right! To take an innocent life



I
can remember when were youths



Everyone
trying to learn ‘bout their roots



Hungry
and thirsty to know ‘bout the truth



But
is like we leave our children destitute



Yes!
Nuff black man should confess



Because
you know in your heart that you never did your best



You
left a long list of children fatherless



And
a whole heap of baby mothers in distress



Then
you wonder ‘bout the youths bad ways



Shocked
and amazed how they’re wicked nowadays



Every
night ina the ghetto, gun shot a blaze



Like
BUYAKA! BUYAKA! is the latest craze



 



Me
nar point no finger and me nar call no name



But
me tired to hear is the Yardie them to blame



Home
grown or from aboard every bad man is the same



And
the lot of them bring my black nation to shame



 



Woe
nana woe my generation



We
are responsible for the situation



Don’t
let it happen to the next foundation



Teach
the little youths about the Father of Creation



Woe
nana woe my generation



We
are responsible for the situation



Don’t
let it happen to the next foundation



Teach
the little youths. Lord!



 



When
Mama heard the news she bawl Jesus Christ!



Weeping
and wailing till she lose her voice



Me
Muslim brother shout “Life for a life!”



And
ran out of the house with the knife



But
Papa said “Hold on, hear what I have to say



Vengeance
is sweet but not the right way



For
the wrongs they’ve done they must have to pay



But
two wrongs could never make a right, no way!”



 



Woe
nana woe my generation



We
are responsible for the situation



Don’t
let it happen to the next foundation



Teach
the little youths about the Father of Creation



Woe
nana woe my generation



We
are responsible for the situation



Don’t
let it happen to the next foundation



Teach
the little youths about the Father of Creation
