Screaming From The Poor

This song is by Lutan Fyah.

Yes JAH give thanks
And I have seen many homeless walk the streets
Yes without shelter nuh clothes upon their back no food to eat
Then hear mi out
Oh yes

I have heard screaming from the poor oh yes
Someone please call the police
I have heard screaming from the poor
1-1-9 alert then it's a state of emergency

Awright den coo-yah now
Den check di condition di yutes dem living in
Ransackle board house, zinc fence and pit latrine
Hey poverty stress dem out some have dem big gun slinging
Uptown and living large dem neva cease from di killing
Den momma ban har belly and bawl
Upon di death toll shi hear har one son name guh call
Try some hustling guh put up a one stall
Here comes metro police awright oh yes

I have heard screaming from the poor oh yes
Someone please call the police
I have heard screaming from the poor
1-1-9 alert we living in a state of emergency

Hear mi out
Den ghetto yutes be careful of dem pencil neck trickster
Hey fi a spit inna di bucket dem wi sell yuh fi di length a di dollar
Mouth full a lies dem a failure
RASTA burn out dem free paper
Den all dem good fa is to enslave the poor for cheap wages
Hey man son toiling for length of dayses
Education is so good but so expensive
Oh mi cyaant even find di monthly bills

I have heard screaming from the poor oh yes
Someone please call the police
I have heard screaming from the poor
1-1-9 alert living in a state of emergency

Den tell mi a who boost di yutes and tun dem inna ruff neck
Gi dem big gun fi buss and mek dem a beat dem chest
Big house pretty cyar and nuff fanciness
Yuh gi dem drugs fi sell and den gi feds dem address
I see dat yuh nuh care about the homeless
Ghetto living is a day to day stress
Nuff yutes walk di streets confuse and perplex
They never know what coming up next
Yes yes
