Battered & Bruised Lyrics – Buju Banton

one life to live [Repeat]

take a look at me tell me what do you see
you dont have to love me but am not your enemy
and am not amused by your verbal abuse
you think you are clever what a sorry excuse
playing with the minds of people dangerous games they play
man if you are not careful they lead you a stray
protect your soul by any means necessary
take nothing for granted
you may be sorry ooohhh
one life u've got to live
come on lets us live it right
if u're in bed with the devil
then you ave made your choice
because

[Chorus]
we've been battered and bruise [Repeat]
we still nursing wounds
battered and bruised still nursing my wounds
battered and bruised yea still nursing my wounds
battered and bruised yeah still nursing wounds

[Verse 2]
we face all form of human segregation
who use to ask me ware i am from
they brought us here in shackles and chain
and throughout the centuries its nothing but pain

[Repeat chorus x2]
[Repeat verse 1]

No Smoking At All Lyrics – Buju Banton

And I want to smoke but the sign says No Smoking At All
Want a drink but they say No More Alcohol
He is like My Back's Against The Wall
I feel like I can't get no help at all

Him feelin a bit under the weather
When I thought to myself what would make him fell better
And some beg for sunken treasure
No I would not keep it all to myself
Let me share some with another
And so I said

I want to smoke but the sign says No Smoking At All
Want a drink but they say No More Alcohol
I fell like my back's against the wall
Feel like I can't get no help at all

I search I look
I call on my brother
Everywhere I turn Everywhere I look
I could not find your daughter
I stopped at every corner I could think
All closed I just could not find a drink
To ease this pain
Oh my day was so bad

Lord
And called
Want to smoke but the sign says No Smoking At All
Want a drink but they say No More Alcohol
I fell like my back's against the wall
Feel like I can't get no help at all

I fell like my back's against the wall
I feel like I can't get no help at all
want to smoke but the sign says No Smoking At All
Want a drink but they say No More Alcohol

I fell like my back's against the wall
Feel like I can't get no help at all
He is like My Back's Against The Wall
I feel like I can't get no help at all

Magic City Lyrics – Buju Banton

I know that the sun will come out tomorrow
Bring me only joy don’t bring no sorrow
Call me optimistic, I believe in life.
All is here for the taking, for a price
For a price, yeah
For a price...For a price
Good Lord

And I say, I know that the sun will come out tomorrow
Bring me only joy don’t bring no sorrow
Call me optimistic, I believe in life.
All is here for the taking, for a price

And it’s a magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Oh magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights

I said, where the mystic is always around
You enjoy the sights and sounds
So high you don’t want to be down
This is where I can be found

Where the mystic is all around
Enjoy the sights and sounds
So high you don’t wanna be down
This is where I can be...

It’s the magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Whoa, magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights

Ay, Yeah I was depressed, frustrated and lonely
Then a voice from nowhere came and consoled me
Now do the best you can, you stand up and be a man

You’re in the magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
This magic city, magic lights, magical moments, magical heights

I know that the sun will come out tomorrow
Bring me only joy don’t bring no sorrow
Call me optimistic, man believe in life.
And all is there for the taking for a price

You’re in the magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Whoa, magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Whoa, magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights

I tell you once more
Where the mystic is all around
You enjoy the sights and sound
So high you don’t want to be down
This is where I can be found

Down there where the mystic is all around
Enjoy the sights and the sound
So high you don’t want to be down
Down there, that’s that’s where I can be...

Magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Oh, magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Ay, magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights
Magic city, magic lights, magic moments, magical heights

Paid Not Played Lyrics – Buju Banton

[Chorus:]
Woman you getting paid not played
Pushing Escalade and rocking Prada
No more drama do your thing your much glamour
Spend a few if you wanna see Cancun or Towanda
Gal say she a go hard make them know say you harder

[Verse 1:]
While girl been pimping hyping up
You got bills in stock keep lining up
No more free loading time is up
Let you breath that paper don't stifle us
Getting 20's if the 18's ain't fat enough
Nice likkle cutie just you backs it up
Tell a gal to keep her eyes off ya stuff
Rude girl a you posses the Midas touch
From head to toe, Buju say you fabulous
i love it when the woman them really gorgeous
No other ting on this earth I would rather trust
Tell all the woman then it is a must

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 2:]
Now who you gonna play
Low down dirty shame
Play unfair
Losing a tricky game
Just look at your hair while im checking out your nails
Tensless I'm stress less loving your everyways
Benjy in the air now let it blaze
Costume ain't nothing so baby let the blazer stay
ya magnetic force pulling me to your shape
Irresistable there's no escape

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 3:]
I love it when the woman dem really fascinating
Joy and pleasure and splender them bring
The woman dem a dance rotate and swing
While the rude bwoy sit pon riddim
Buju Banton in the area oh what a vibe
The woman dem make my eyes open and I realize
A dem have the feeling
Dem store di ride
Gwaan Gargamel just ride

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 4:]
While girl been pimping hyping up
You got bills in stock keep lining up

Let us breath that paper don't settle us
Getting 20's if the 18's ain't fat enough, come on
Nice likkle cutie won't you backs it up
Tell dem Buju Banton say she have di right stuff
Ah rude girl a you posses the Midas touch

From you gorgeous, Buju say you gorgeous so
Greet you pon di riddim, di riddim is a must so

Get It On Lyrics – Buju Banton (feat. Wayne Wonder)

Put yourself in my position
It's the moment of decision
Got to love you like a real man
Let us have some fun

When you ready you to come, come
Fit up me self already, no man, nah, go run, run
Pleasure satisfaction alone me bring down down
Penis stiff up like a pencil hear a beat like a dum dum

Man nuh afraid, a woman brave heart, man a uh dum dum
Love you, make you simmer and settle like a run down
Touch you body right and make you say it's well done
Nah give her a half, me a make, she view the whole spectrum

Woman just bring on the fun
I'm gonna love you like it's never been done
Take on a level plane and set your equilibrium
No escaping, no turning back and no place to run
Woman a melt, she a the butter me a the sun

Try my best to make it better satisfy
You bring you pleasure in your life
Other guys would die to do whatever
Acting smart, not being clever, no, not I

Man a make love to woman, them a look up inna space
Nah feel no pleasure, him nuh penetrate
She want test her fate
Hold on and brace get up tired
And tried and ball fi body ace

See the hussy, carry the money, make him confiscate
You rather have a man with whom you can relate
First, you be fair, not Vanity Fair
The something the you have by right, it has to share

And food mi ago hav it nuff plenty
So mi nuh sit and worry mi jus a wait pan prophecy

Poor Old Man Lyrics – Buju Banton (feat. Stephen Marley)

Say, there were lonely a man even than before...
Shooba, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

There was once an old man, who lived all alone
All through out his life, no happiness have he had known
Now with tears in his eyes, he watches as folks passes by
Walking hand in hand with love
Walking hand in hand with love

Now said, I read a letter, poor old woman say
Trying to express how much she needed help
Her loneliness, no sweet caress
No tenderness, she needed some help

Babe, young, the elderly they all want love
Good loviduby mi say kiss and hug
That fill up the cup, mi say dat full di the mug
Overflow to the brim, mi say, like water jug
Woman dem a bubble up, need a little cuddle up
Nah tek nuh fubble up, hardcore a double up
Anywhere we go dancehall a fi nice up
When this one play feel it, yeah
It's the order of the day, you can't deny it, no way
When dis one play, you feel it, yeah

When will they meet? Poor old woman say
When will they greet? Poor old woman say
Her loneliness is the message that she sends
And all she need is one good faithfull friend
That will make her smile again

Throughout her life there is nothing but misery
Upstairs and downstairs, roller coaster tragedy
All kind a things, mi say none she never fancy
When yu chek it out, it was all topsy turvey
Gwan Buju Banton yu pattern is ever irie
Anywhere you go dem call yu Mr. Mark Myrie
And when they're having problems
They think that we can solve them
Who they're having problems
They think that we can solve them

She cried, help me please, poor old woman say
Some company, poor old woman say
In sympathy, she asked me for some help
To find some one to share her loneliness
She said, she can't go on like this

There was once an old man, who lived all alone
All through out his life, no happiness have he had known
Now with tears in his eyes, he watches as folks passes by
Walking hand in hand with love
Walking hand in hand with love

Such loneliness, poor old woman say
Nah, can't forget, poor old woman say
In sympathy, she asked me for some help
To find some one to share her loneliness
She said, she needs something better than this...

Hills And Valleys Lyrics – Buju Banton

Only Rasta can liberate the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe for a minute that they are with you
Jah free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe for a minute, they don't like you

[Verse 1:]
Why try to make I unhappy
Really I don't know
If it was up to them my friend
We would never see the sun nor the snow
Through that mystical communication within
We keep on coming together
I love to see brothers and sisters
Looking out for one another
That's the way it should be
Not contrary, stop tearing down each other

Only Rasta free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe one minute that they are with you
Jah free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe for a minute that they are with you

[Verse 2:]
Hard drugs won't do
You're just behaving like they want you to (yeah)
Arrogance is much different from ignorance
And I know you feel the same way too
Many live this life without having a clue
No reason why they are so sad and blue
Places to go so much things to do
Not a moment to reflect on the cycle of life (yeah)

A who free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe for a minute that they are with you
Jah free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe one minute, they don't like you

It hard, it hard, it hard (yeah)
Mek them know we waan go home a we yard
It hard, it hard, it hard (let them know)
Let them know we waan go home a we yard
It hard, it hard, it hard (let them know)
Let them know we waan go home a we yard
It hard, it hard, it hard (oh god)
We waan go home

Only Rasta free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe one minute, they don't like you

[Repeat Verse 1]

A who free the people
Over hills and valleys too
Don't let them fool you
Don't believe one minute, they don't like you
Jah free the people
Over hills and valleys too

Cry No More Lyrics – Buju Banton

Don't cry, don't cry
Oh no, oh no

I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
You got to be strong
Never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
You gotta be strong, oh my love

I know I've hurt you more than once
Treating your love like I don't response
Time in deed, caught up on me
Trapped in your tears
Please set me free I plea
Maybe I took this life for granted
Making you feel like you're not wanted
Ego got the best of me
Chasing every beautiful woman I see
In the end what's my reward
I brought unhappiness in a mi yard, oh Lord

I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
No no no no no no no
I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
Dry your weeping eyes, oh my love

And this may sound just like a drama
Inside me there's constant fire
Burning my soul, saying oh what a liar
You've hurt me, so much time hurt her no longer
But I am really a true believer in love
Trying my best to make it work
Show me a man who doesn't cheat
Nor flirt in this world
Boys will be attracted to girls

I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
Got to be strong
I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
No no no no no no no

I know that I've hurt you more than once
Treating your love like I don't response
Time in deed, caught up on me
Trapped in your tears
Please set me free I plea
Maybe I took this love for granted
Making you feel like you're not wanted
Ego got the best of me
Chasing every beautiful woman I see
In the end what's my reward
I brought unhappiness in a mi yard, oh Lord

I never want to see you crying over me
You know that's not the way that it's supposed to be
Oh no, no no no no
Wipe your eyes

Close One Yesterday Lyrics – Buju Banton

One more day in the struggle
Have to get up and juggle
You done know, want a little sugar inna de pan
Me nah see fi trouble, no man
Oh oh oh

Said I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better, don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better, be strong

Said I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better, don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better, be strong

The rich is wise in his conceit
But the fool with over standing search him out
Poor man mourn, the rich riches increase
Be not grieved, riches are not forever

Envy not the oppressor choses none of his ways
Be not wise in his own eyes, only jah you must praise
Strive not with a man without cause
If he have done no harm, let by gone be by gone

Said I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better, don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better, be strong

This nine to five is a joke
Compare to the pressure the minister say
The economy is getting better
Misleading the people

The mass still suffer on jah
Scarce benefit and spoils
Jah know that we feel it day

Love Sponge Lyrics – Buju Banton

Exactly how the rudebwoy feel
Oh baby, Oh lady (a big bad rhythm)
Yeah

[Chorus:]
This one is called lovers choice
Never know yuh woulda really feel so nice, (love sponge)

[Repeat]

[Verse 1:]
Lord you are lovable, kissable

Without your sweet caress im so damn miserable
Touch your finesse, feel the fur of your coat
Seen you walk away saying my eyes in smoke

They claim you do something they just cant explain
To the brain
Your man shouldnt have no complain
Oh no

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 2:]
Hey slow motion is the way for us to enjoy the day
Always taking time to listen what she got to say

Darling don't quarrel with me, It hurts too easily
Dont be messed up by silly tendency
No no way

[Chorus x2]

[Verse 3:]
She mek a caan forget about the huging and squeezing
Ah feel as if im upside down in the ceiling
Confess, this girl is the ultimate thing
What it means to be loved, no need asking
Swing baby swing, while I continue sing
Your favrite song
Let's go dancing
Hey, chuh

[Chorus]

[Repeat from top]

Circumstances Lyrics – Buju Banton

Circumstances made me what I am
Was I born a violent man
Circumstances made me what I am
Everyone should understand

Circumstances made me what I am
Was I born a violent man
Circumstances made me what I am
Everyone should know

[Verse 1]
May sound strange, might sound foolish
But things ain't getting better
Everyday another fall victim to the beretter
Why is there so much violence
Killing we one another
Let us learn to live and let that light shine brighter
Bad influence through influence the youth dem get slaughter
As bad as badman use to be
Dem respect dI father
is like no eyes no realize seh
Times get harder
MI talk all night with all mI might
But still is laughter

Circumstances made me what I am
Was I born a violent man
Circimstances made me what I am
And everyone should know

[Verse 2]
Him say, when I try to cope
Tell mI self there is hope
It seems like the biggest joke
Eh eh,

And as I put down the gun
Still dollars must run
All now employment can't come
Have mI a jam and a cool
Want go back in a school
The system lick mI
There's no hope for those
Who have not from the slum
Take dI little much we have
Still hunting we down
I beg unu show some love
Unu wI get back, he replied

Circumstances made me what I am
Was I born a violent man
Circimstances made me what I am
And everyone should know

[Verse 3]
Well a no little cry
Mama cry, papa cry too
She warn the bwoy wth all heart
And that couldn't do
Now dem find him dead with a smith and wesson
Six weeks and change
Now mi hear him missing
Why so much violence, too much violence
It hurts my soul and I won't keep silent

Circumstances made me what I am
That was his reply I cry
Circumstances made me what I am
Everyone should know

[Repeat verse 1]

"'Til Shiloh" (1995)

Shiloh Lyrics – Buju Banton

Strange, this feeling I'm feeling
But Jah love we will always believe in
I know you may think my faith is in vain
Til Shiloh we'll chant Rastafari's name

Til I'm Laid To Rest Lyrics – Buju Banton

[Chorus]
'Til I'm laid to rest
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West
i know the East is the best
All the propaganda they spread
Tongues will have to confess

I'm in bondage living is a mess
I've got to rise up alleviate the stress
No longer will I expose my weakness
He who seeks knowledge begins with humbleness
Work 7 to 7 but I'm still penniless
All the food upon my table Massa God bless
Holler for the needy and shelterless
Ethiopia awaits all prince and princess

[Chorus]

What coube so bad about the East
Everybody wants a piece
Africa for Africans
Marcus Mosiah speak
Unification outnumbers defeat
What a day when we walk down Redemption Street
Banner on heads bible inna we hands
One and all lets trod the promised land
Buju go down a Congo
Stopped in Shashamane Land
The city of Harare where Selassie com from
In Addis Ababa then Batswana
Left Kenya end up in Ghana
Oh what a beauty my eyesight behold
Only Ethiopia protect me from the cold

[Chorus]

Organize and centralize come as one
Our seeds shall be so many more than sand
Some new and replenish pure and clean heart
For too long we've been under this band
Some a save a bag a riches
Yet they die empty hand
Go on saying I'm stupid and laugh all you can
Easier for a caller to go through a needle eye
Than a rich man to enter a Zion
Take it from I man
So

Murderer Lyrics – Buju Banton

[Chorus x2]
Murderer! Blood is on your shoulders
Kill I today you cannot kill I tomorrow
Murder! Your insides must be hollow
How does it feel to take the life of another

Yes, you can hide from man but not your conscience
You eat the bread of sorrow
Drink the wine of violence
Allow yourself to be conquered by the serpent
Why did you disobey the first commandment
Walk through the valley I fear no pestilence
God is my witness and He is my evidence
Lift up mine eyes from whence cometh help
You will never escape this judgement

[Chours]

I tell you, all men are created equal
But behind the trigger it's a different sequel
Some are murdering people just to collect medals
Stop committing dirty acts for the high officials
You could wash your hands until you can't wash them any more
It is like an epidemic and you won't find a cure
Upper class you could be rich, middle class whether you are poor
Only the righteous won't feel insecure
Have you ever thought about your skill getting bored

[Chorus]

Drinking sulphur bitters won't be bitter like your end
Only God can help you, no family or friend
Don't let the curse be upon your children's children
Abednigo, Shadreck, Meshek, Daniel in the dne
Jonah in the whale's belly, but was never condemned
Job with the leprosy, and he still reached heaven
He will do for you everything He has done for them

Untold Stories Lyrics – Buju Banton

While I'm Living
Thanks I'll Be Giving
To the Most High You know,

[Chorus: ]
I am living while I am living to the father I will pray
Only he knows how we get through everyday
With all the hike in the price
Arm and leg we have to pay
While our leaders play

[Verse 1:]
All I see people a rip and a rob and a grab
Tief never love fe see tief wid long bag
No love for the people who a suffer real bad
Another toll to the poll may God help we soul
What is to stop the youths from get out of control
Full up of education yet no own no payroll
The clothes on my back have countless eyehole.
I could go on and on the full has never been told

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
Who can afford to run will run
But what about those who can't...they will have to stay
Opportunity a scarce, scarce commodity
In these times I say... When mama spend her last and send you go class
Never you ever play
It's a competitive world for low budget people,
Spending a dime while earning a nickel
With no regards to who it may tickle
My cup is full to the brim
I could go on and on the full has never been told

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
All I see people a rip and a rob and a grab
Tief never love fe see tief wid long bag
No love for the people who a suffer real bad
Another toll to the poll may God help we soul
What is to stop the youths from get out of control
Full up of education yet no own no payroll
The clothes on my back have countless eyehole
Could go on and on and the full has never been told
(On and On)
Though this life keep getting me down
Don't give up now
Got to survive somehow
Could go on and on and the full has never been told

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 4:]
Who can afford to run will run
But what about those who can't...they will have to stay
Opportunity a scarce, scarce commodity
In these times I say... When mama spend her last and send you go class

Spending a dime while earning a nickel
With no regards to who it may tickle

I could go on and on the full has never been told
I could go on and on....
The full has never....

Been.....

Not An Easy Road Lyrics – Buju Banton

[Chorus x2]

It's not an easy road
Many see the glamour and the glitter
And think it's a bed of rose
Who feels it knows
Lord help me sustain these blows

From the minute of birth you enter this earth
Obstacles in your way to overcome first
Throughout every day they seem to get worse
Oh my god cast away this curse
Everybody is trying to make ends meet
Through every way they endeavor
Lord God you see it
No matter what the world may say on the street
Must have to survive, won't accept defeat
Now I'm wary, tired and dreary
Got no time to waste
You know now

[Chorus]

By you rise to see the sun
Who you love a pull you down
Trying to discredit the works you have done
Some can't satisfy with the past of ally
From the Scribes and Pharisees
You've got to stay wide
Hold up your head glancing at both side
Waiting anticipating praying for you to slide
Righteouness prevails with Jah by my side
Delver Jonah from the whale
Never leave him to die
Help us all Abbaba Joni
Hold up my head and cry

[Chours]

I've been travelling all morning
With such a heavy load
Now it's noon and I cannot afford
To put down this burden alongside the road
I've got to hold it, got to humble myself
Like a child
Upon my face I've the got to put on a smile
Make up my mind just to walk more miles
Because I know that

[Chorus]

Only Man Lyrics – Buju Banton

Love you like Jesus loves us all

[Chours]

I would like to be your honey
In your life I want to be only man
Real quality time and affection
One man can't run her locked combination
All she's looking, she can see the Mr.Man

Tear up resume burn up application
One look she take and mi fit the position
No matter who is in the way
Run waythe little man
Buju have the slam to rock you all night long
Woman I see trouble
To how my heart a bubble
Something must be wrong
Juggle me a juggle
Still can hold my hand

[Chorus:]

Whole heap a them come bout
But them no ready
Check them out, them is a mess
Don't want no bag a problem and stress
Loving excess, kill you with happiness
Stick to the ragga and you wouldn't want to leave
This is no poppy show
Tell you man him get blow
Rude boy visit yard him no tip toe

[Chorus:]

Why you refuse to humble
Your hears to my cry
Feel I only want you because of your needle eye
Wrote many notes but you didn't reply
Walked off my boot heel
To show that I am a nice guy
Woman the little love
Me can't wait to pacify
I cry and bawl til me well dry
Anytime me see you
I rail up high
Temperature rise and me naw stop cry

Complaint Lyrics – Buju Banton (feat. Garnett Silk)

[Chorus]
If you do wrong they complain
Even if you call the father's name its the same
What they`want us to do
Don't they know it is nothing new
Why won't they do what they want
And let me do my thing they should be thankful
There's lights of hope still shining
[Buju Banton:]
Let Jah rise and the heathen scatter
Have to give thanks and praises no matter
Even if the flames is getting hotter & hotter
Every one should know I don't believe in rumor
Children arise from your sleep & slumber
Don't come to bow, come to conquer
Strictly love why you envy your brother
Don't let them re-arrange you in a different manner
[Garnett Silk:]
Why should I change to gain acceptance
Can't tell a next man how to wear his pants
Lift up the name of Jah in abundance
Every single thing we do, we are liable
To get a sentence
But we won't be like a flea just like how the more we see
The less you hear we speak
My brother don't you be like a stubborn sheep
Blessed are he when man shall revile you
And persecute you, say all manner of evil
Against you falsely, for Jah sake
Rejoice I say and be exceedingly glad
For great is your reward
For so persecute they the prophets before you and me
[Buju Banton:]
Let Jah rise and the heathen scatter
Have to give thanks and praises no matter
Even if the flames is getting hotter & hotter
Every one should know I don't believe in rumor
Children arise from your sleep & slumber
Don't come to bow, come to conquer
Strictly love why you envy your brother
Don't let them re-arrange you in a different manner

Chuck It So Lyrics – Buju Banton

You Mr. Big Man
Yes you same one
Always studying something new
Ever disturbing people, you and your crew
Always up to something bad
[Chorus]
How you a go on like bully so
On the border like you not going
I want to know what got into you
Why you walking and chuck it so
Word go round say the man them from up so say
Then a go corn you
Don't bother form no fool
And go back down there
Can't say I never warned you
You must jam one away
And ever lay lay
That way them can't harm you
You must move well alert
And expect any foul play
Those men know where you work
Where you sleep
Where you play
Dis the wrong set a man you got to run away
Force ripe bad boy
Who was wicked yesterday
[Chorus]
You was in Grade 5
I was in Grade 9
Humble'er than you little boy you couldn't find
Now you murdering people what's got into your mind
Kill so much people
Every day the number climb
Now your friends are after you
Your life is on the line
Start playing the role name John hard to find
This is Buju B
You better start rewind
[Chorus]
Don't have any responsibility
Not responsible
Not a baby mother to go home to
Laing, Ford and Amin every body want you
Five bad man hunting you
Now it double
Public nuisance
It's either kill the law
Or they murder you
Take it easy hear it from Buju
Straight from my heart
It's coming to you
Then I'm asking
[Chorus]

How Could You Lyrics – Buju Banton

It is real, as real as it seem
Don't you live on illusion
And don't you ever try to live a dream
I sing...
[Chorus]
Buju say how could you rise up every living day
Telling yourself everything is OK
When you look at life you'll see it slipping away
Lord knows who feels it every moment every day
Those why cry for the poor get neglected, rejected, put to death
How much more will we take?
Did you father work off his shirt, blood, sweat and tears
Don't tell me that you forgot
Being oppressed by the oppressors, all different types of stress
For the sorrows of the poor, they don't even care less
Refuse to deal with world atrocities, civil unrest
Instead they're building penitentiaries as big as a bird's nest
Saying we are to be blamed for whatever what mess
[Chorus]
Some say, how are you going? They want to know if we are mine
Not until we reposess what's rightfully mine
Sitting down for so long we do belive it is time
Everyone is entitled to food at mealtime
'Til then, we'll struggle for rights, no more racial fights
Degradation to the highest heights
All obstacles as a people we have to cross
With health and strength we all can get across
Happenings of yesterday are just a thing of the past
[Chorus]
Don't you cry little one, wipe your tears, sing my song
Though we're in a strange land with evil ones
Help the weak if you're strong, iron sharpens iron
When you're down take a look at where the help is coming from
What about the masterminds with the foolproof plans
What about the geniuses who achieve grade one
[Chorus]
[Repeat verse 1 and verse 2]

Wanna be Loved Lyrics – Buju Banton

[Chorus]

Wanna be loved
Not for who you think I am
Nor what you want me to be
Could you love me for me?
Real love, with no strings attached
I wanna give you me heart
Don't want to take it back
This is my chat-cho

Been searching for a long long time
For that oh-so-true love
To comfort this heart of mine
No pretense stop wasting my time
A virtuous woman is really hard to find
I'm telling you lady
I'm only human, not looking for impossibility
Just a genuine woman with sincerity
Someone who is always near to hold me
Show me you care, up front and boldly
Don't shun my feelings, all the positive meanings
Love me morning, noon all seasons

[Chorus]

Well every hoe have it's stick in a bush
What happen to me...she must be somewhere out there
Now where could she be?
Caught up passionately in a love rhapsody
I'm like waiting on some honey
But there ain't no queen bee
Everybody's laughing
Some say I'm silly
No infatuation, no love fantasy
Woman you lead my life on a string
I can't tale the on and off thing
I'm oh so lonely inside so I sing

[Chorus]

I would spend my nights at home
But if it means contention
I'd rather be alone
Tell the service man cut the phones
Lock all communication
If there's no light within my day
I'd rather stay in isolation
For that special someone a lifetime I'll wait
I know that I'll be okay
Cross my heart, every day I live I pray
And I know she'll come my way
Night and day for this woman I pray

[Chorus]

It's All Over Lyrics – Buju Banton

Girls in supply, Buju Banton expressing his feelings
Look at the action of the girls
Lord have mercy, I am getting excited
[Chorus]
Woman are mashing up to town
From the head to the ground
And the men are rejoicing
It's all over
She's on the starting line
Now they're off
If you stop to look you will see everyone at last
It is the sweetness of your body that makes you excel
The girl up front, she won't last
Flourishing, nourishing, everything else
The ragamuffin could ever want
Men are craving for your body
They think it must be some glue
They tell their girlfriends they have left them
[Chorus]
I can't tell you how much I want you, right now
I'm coming to get you, serious talk now
You could barricade the door or your father could
Be guarding you with a 404 rifle
The rest of my life I will devote
Let's go make a martimonal house
Woman every groove and every angle fit
It must be aerobic class
I can imagine what it would be like with you
[Chorus]
Do it when you're young, you can't wait til youre older
Tell the girl to move, get out of the way
All the things you have expensive
Buju Banton is speaking and the world is crowed
The girl is being used and not seen any results after
Men using women like how they use plaster
Look how the girls wrecking the corner
What Buju Banton say...hea hea
[Chorus]
[Repeat all verses]
Look at the girl moving in the center
Wiggling, jiggling all over
Men are after you body like termite to lumber
The amount of men you want is more than number
Sho Buju us here and it's a Drama
[Chorus]

Hush Baby Hush Lyrics – Buju Banton

Yeah big surprise
Guess you didn't realize the size
[Chorus: STAY]
Hush baby hush
Didn't know it would hurt so much
Natural stuff, throw away the stone, break up the brush
Man well rough woman always requesting the work
Yes she have to get the pillow
Bedroom destruction woman you rman is a killer
Have to give it up when she see me
Wicked on the trigger man is a good digger
Woman wiggling & jiggling saying you get bigger
Where have you been you jolly bad fellow
Instantly she get asthma
Who told her to unveil the arrow
Ambulance wouldn't come
They have to send the wheel barrow
[Chorus]
Never hesitate to set straight the matter
Big man don't have to masturbate
Because just look at big body Pam and
Sexy body Marcia
The amount of woman in the world its a Drama
Girls chasing like hot lava
Holiday coming every woman want a llama
Face look great, shape it's a blaster
Style is your motto and fashion you
Are the master
So hush baby
[Chorus]
Rain starts to fall, your inner nature call
You need a good soccer player to kick the football
Direct free kick, curve it around the defense
Ball is in the net
Sheet and pillow a[[lad
Close the door be sure it's locked
Bangarang the in the room between you and me
[Chorus]

I am Lonely, lonely, lonely (Oh I'm singin)
Girl I'm lonely for you only (Lonely for you only now)
Feelin lonely, lonely, lonely (An I'm serious, dat aint no joke)
Girl, I'm lonely for you only

Buju Banton:

(Stein!)
I cry
Get it together
Woman dem no inna
'Nother accapella fella
Good weather, bad weather
Strong umbrella
Remember its hard
Make di woman feel
As if she de pon on a Concord
Fella
'Member mi say
Use up cool water
Whatcha gonna do
To obtain dis dawta
Have di lamb in hand
An let it escape slaughter
Now all over town you is a laugh

Whatcha gonna do
Woman fed up
She say she no inna nuttin wida-a you
Cyaan see ya through
(I know dat)

[Wayne Wonder:]

I am Lonely, lonely, lonely (Oh so lonely for you)
Girl I'm lonely for you only (Oh so lonely, I'm Oh-so lonely)
Feelin lonely, lonely, lonely
Girl, I'm lonely for you only

Batty Rider Lyrics – Buju Banton

Girrrrls, all fruits ripe
Unuh a gwaaan good
I waaan yuh jus trussss mi
Hear whyme holla!

Gal yuh see yuh battyrider, murda
Yuh mus fi waan di DJ charge fa (a death)
Woman yuh see yuh battyrider, murda
Yuh mus fi waan di DJ charge fa

Shorts hitch up pon yuh saddle, ride up pon yuh back
Exposin yuh property, man a seh it fat
Merchandise everyday deh deh neva run outta stops
Full a shape like a coke bottle without di top
Tings a gwaan fi yuh body, trus me pon dat
All fruits ripe, so mek dem gwaan chat
Weh dem a duh, weh dem a try, whoo dem a try stop
Fram battyrider a wear gal yuh haffi inna dat, so mi seh

Gal yuh see yuh battyrider, murda
Yuh mus fi waan di DJ charge fa (a death)
Woman yuh see yuh battyrider, murda

Di DJ waan fi know, a weh she get it from
Battyrider di gal a use, an a mad man
Without di battyrider, Jacqueline nah go out
If di face nah seh one, di body fi a shock out
So she a go check a jus mecca later down a south
War come a dance, deh come mor come shock out

Nuff gal inna batty shorts, feel seh dem hot
But dem flop! Cah unda dem batty jaw black
So yuh fi, banner di lola an deal wid di case
Go do bogle dance, an mek up yuh face
An mek yuh mate know yuh hav a slice of di cake
