My Great Shun Lyrics

Mutabaruka

Suh yuh jus fine out 'bout, de reality ova deh
Lef yard seh.. yuh wah run whey
Now yuh a bawl.. yuh wah cum back
Betta cum quick before de door dem lack

But yuh passport nuh up to date, suh yuh afi wait
Si yuh grab de bait, si yuh grab de bait
Dis a de dream yuh wanted to wear
Now it tun inna nitemare
There in de slums yuh sit ana wanda
If de news is true or is jus propoganda
Wid yuh Jamaican body an yuh foreign mind
Standin' in de welfare line
Tryin' to get everything yuh can get
Neva knoo yuh coulda cold an sweat

But yuh lef' tinkin' yuh woulda betta deh
But tings nuh betta.. betta weh
Yuh visa expire, yuh afi tun lier
Yuh suh bold, sweatin' in de cold
You are so bold sweatin' in the cold

Bet yuh neva knoo tings was like dis
In de lan of opportunity an bliss
Bet yuh neva knoo seh
Suffaration deh every whey
But yuh lef' tinkin' yuh woulda betta deh
But tings nuh betta.. betta whey

Now yuh tink of de lan yuh lef' behind
Quick san pullin yuh caught in de grime
In de lan of oportunity an bliss
Doin' funny tings jus to exist
Tryin' to get a piece of de pie
Livin' in their illusion an lie

Yuh so bold, sweatin' in de cold
You are so bold, sweatin' in the cold
