Do You Ever?

This song is by Sizzla and appears on the compilation album The Best Of Sizzla: The Story Unfolds (2002).

Mi dih loke how dem ah treat
The ghetto dem you know

Woy woy woy woy woy woy woy
Woy woy woy woy woy woy
Woy woy woy woy woy woy woy
Jah

Tell me if you ever walk the streets
Of the ghettos them before
Fi see who is unsafe from secure
The life style of my people,
You fail to recognise
Do you know what it takes
Fi ghetto people survive
Did you ever walk through August Town at all
Fi hear the comments of the people they ah bawl
Wonder what it takes for you to realise
How Riverton City ghetto youths them ah strive

That's why we ah king from we dey home inna Africa
Once we ah trod through Rome we ah warrior
Wha we fi get all know it no deliver
Our share uno tek and ah dis we after
When we money start you keep your secret secure
When it start fall you make it known to the poor
Soon you'll be coming back for more
And when your cup full ah we ignoor

Did you ever walk the ghettos them before
Fi see who is unsafe from secure
The life style of my people,
You fail to recognise
Do you know what it takes
Fi ghetto youths them survive
Did you ever walk through Rima at all
Fi hear the comments of the ghetto youths ah bawl
Wonder what it takes for you to realise
How Nanny Ville ghetto youths them ah strive

Heard you commenting all the while
About the places we live
Degrade we lifestyle
When you make it what it is
I'm reaping violence from my cities
Low hygiene to the home in many village
Now who will protect thoes who truly want peace
How can we keep the peace when there is no piece to keep
This time I'll take no defeat
Oh lord I'm inclined to stand on my feet

Did you ever walk the ghettos them before
Fi see who is unsafe from secure
The life style of my people,
You won't recognise
Do you know what it takes
Fi ghetto people survive
Mi know you never walk through Waterhouse at all
Else you wouldda hear the the ghetto people ah bawl
Wonder what it takes for you to realise
How Craig Town massive them ah strive

Well then mista rich come off of the poor man's feet
Why is it the strong want to downpress the weak
Without thoes who clean your sanitaries and sweep the streets
Your cities will be mocky you no see it
Who you promise to sink it price shall be low
Yet it increase everywhere that you go
Is this the way your love ah show
Hurting others and your own also

Did you ever walk the ghettos them before
Fi notice who is unsafe from secure
The life style of my people,
You fail to recognise
Do you know what it takes
Fi ghetto people survive
Did you ever touch Tivaly at all
Fi hear the comments of the people they ah bawl
Wonder what it takes for you to realise
How Harbor View ghetto youths them ah strive

So we ah king from we dey home inna Africa
Once we ah trod through Rome we ah warrior
Wha we fi get all know you no deliver
Our share uno tek and ah dis we after
When we money start you keep your secret secure
When it start fall you make it known to the poor
Soon you'll be coming back for more
And when your cup full the poorer class you ignoor

Did you ever walk the ghettos them before
Fi notice who is unsafe from secure
The life style of my people,
You fail to recognise
Do you know what it takes
Fi ghetto people survive
