Wake Up Call


No matter how dem fi test, no matter how dem fi stress. Jah Jah make sure that me nah fall. I n I we Haile Selassie I bless, sent to educate the rest. So this yah wake up call. Hey yo.. this yah wake up call. Me say YO, this yah wake up call!

How dem, how dem, how dem fi come try and tell me
That we nah industry driven?
When we a sit down, sit down, sit down all we
Little children in front of tell lie vision.
Switch up the roots of the youths, the roots of the youths,
And nah claim that dem have a mission.
How dem a know, how dem know Ronald McDonald
Like it is part of dem religion.
Give dem a cell phone, before they know dem self.
Give dem designer garment, pick it from the top shelf.
Get dem caught up in vanity and hunting wealth.
Won’t you give a sense of reality Jah
If nothing else.
You see the youth dem crying out fi help.
Put the glock inna deh back pack,
They shoot school, then shoot themselves.
Yah damaging and damning us to hell,
So mi call upon the people dem to stand up rebel.

Mi say it’s obvious.
That my bredrin and my sistren, yes the people,
Dem condition products.
Based upon the way the little youth dem a brought up.
Say that they reflect just like the glistening water.
Yes… mi say it’s obvious.
That if we clean up what we give the youths to read,
Clean up what we give the youths to eat.
Dem a clean up what they do deh pon the street,
Clean up how dem act and how dem speak,
Selassie give dem strength.

No matter how dem fi test, no matter how dem fi stress,
Jah Jah make sure that me nah fall.
I n I n I we Haile blessed, sent to educate the rest,
So this yah wake up call. (repeat)

Who dem think dem a be, stand up and try fi tell me
That we nah industry driven?
When we a go sit down all we little children, plug dem up
Put on the big television.
Switch up the roots of the youths, give dem lie fi the truth,
Nah claim that dem have a mission.
How dem fi know Bozo and Ronald McDonald,
Like it’s part of dem damn religion.
Give dem ring ring cell phone, but they don’t know self,
Give dem bling bling garment pick it from the top top shelf.
Turn dem into hunter of iniquity and wealth.
Badda give you conscious if nothing else,
Badda man a give you righteous sense of self.
Badda hear the little youth a calling out fi help,
Put the glock inna deh back pack,
Pop school then pop them self.

You see the youth dem like monkey see a monkey do.  You can’t tell dem “Love thy neighbor” and talk bad ‘bout who lives next door. It’s like the people dem breed the youth, and fall asleep pon dem responsibility to set an example fi deh pickney. It’s time to wake up mon. Stand up for yourself and realize that it’s time to wake up mon. Hey yo… wake up, wake up. You’ve got responsibility.
