​The Government

This song is by Wasp.

You can’t believe dem say.
Dem a say me fi stop the poor-people-song, because me criss now? Negative

Dat one for all the people who have really nice lives,
Who have no idea what it is like for bruk like dat.

Chorus:
Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.

Everywhere mi go mi here the people crying out,
Up in the Jamaica you have famine and drought.
Make a little timber ….
Big Sunday and a no food there inna mi house

More time mi really feel like for bawl,
but mi get up on a crazy white squall.

Most men who rise up, they turn up tall.
… get dem likkle goods from the start

Chorus:
Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.

Poorer a set the people, dem don’t stand a chance,
Unfair officer come lock off mi dance.

Cry fi di youths and then mi tell mi seh mi can’t??
…???

More time mi really feel like for bawl,
but … dance hall.

Most men who rise up, they turn up tall.
.. for mi on Jah name mi call.

Chorus:
Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.

Acts like you nuh see it,
Things are getting wicked every day inna di streets,
Nuff men can’t hold it, can’t … their feets.
So we’re weeping and mourning and…
Another thing,
The recession get big,
Mi daughter nah no food and none of that get me weak.

The shotter dem …
So from the war the likkle juvenile, dem a go …

When dem check and realize

Chorus:
Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.

Let me a talk to all the big guys of you.


But as long as mi live, we deya for the poor people campaign.
Malcom X never fear,
Martin Luther never fear,
The great Bob Marley never fear,
Marcus Garvey never fear,
So how come we a fear inna 2011?

Because as long as Warrior Music a provide the beats,
… brain food, lyrically

Chorus:
Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.

Light bill raise,
Water bill raise,
Like we a work for give the government.
School fare raise,
Bus fare raise,
Like we a work for give the government.

As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
As I make that money, dem take that money,
Like we a work for give the government.
