Mr Politician

Wake up and open your eyes
And realise Politician
Dem a wolf under disguise
Come & trick we with dem lies
Ah we are the real government of the earth
we are the majority Dem are the minority
Ah Y to di T with the reality
What we tell dem Say

 

dem ah treat we like a pawn ina dem game of chess
From the day we born we have to face di stress
Politician always ah try to play smart
come ah tell we say di money ah run short

Mr Politician - Stop playing games with our life
I don't know how you can sleep at night
But remember say unfair game must have to play twice
Mr Politician - It's obvious to me what is your mission
You just ah sell bere guns & ammunition
and we ah live with the consequences of your decision

  
Take a look around it gone from bad to worse
everywhere mi look is gunshot ah burst
a likkle pickney dead and he is not the first
another family ah wear black go church
wha we ah go do fi mek dat reverse
everyday we look ah more coffin and hearse
likkle pickney dead fi hungry and thirst
Mummy cant find one cent in her purse
ah where di money deh? mi want reimbusre
how you fi eat the food? is me mash the works !
ah you have the power to make a difference
but you nah deal with no upliftment

Mr Politician - I can see clear what is your plan
Just fi get ah money ina your hand
you don't business at all who you have to step pon
Mr Politician - It's all about power & greed
You've got so much more than you need
But still you nah share no matter how much hungry belly want feed

So who nuh like di message tell dem sit down & squat
we come fi burn ah politician who tek we for idiot
cos everyday dem ah come ah treat we like a doormat
like dem alone fi live ina comfort
please tell di politician stop tell man with Gyow
tell dem fi let off some money right now
people nah go tek it much longer
you know you soon see the wrath of dem anger
nah vote for dem one is as wicked as the next one
don't ask me to choose cos none of dem is my selection
everytime mi see dem just ah fix up dem election
trying to lead the people in the wrong direction
all some of dem ah talk bout is politics
everything out of dem mouth is politics
but mi nuh see no good ah come out of politics
so allow me out of politics

Mr Politician, I can see clear wat is yuh mission
Yuh juss a sell bare guns and ammunitions
But a we livin wid di consequences of yuh decision
Mr Politician, stop playing games wid our life
I dunno how yuh can sleep at night
Cause everyday you come and ah give the poor people dem a fight
Mr Politician, why yuh ah treat we like a dog
We know seh yuh a liar and a fraud
Everyday you come and ah draw for your politricks card...............
