So take your gun dread man keep it down low
Take your jay dread man burn it up, woe

Well, I see children with a gun and I see children with a knife
Tell you likkle fool the golden rude boy it ain't nice

Well, I see children with a gun and I see children with a knife
Tell you likkle fool the golden rude boy it ain't nice
Stop dem, Jah Jah fe cure dem
