Hop bop but don't call the cop
My sound still in the musical top, relax
Come on in, the gate is wide and open
Don't be afraid, we're not as bad as they say

Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you
We're having fun down in the ghetto
We're having fun down in the ghetto
We're having fun down in the ghetto
We're having fun down in the ghetto

[Chorus]
When will the innocent stop being
Punished for their innocence
When will the innocent stop being
Punished for their innocence
When will the innocent stop being
Punished for their innocence
When will the innocent stop being
Punished for their innocence

Come on in, the gate is wide and open
Don't be afraid, we're not as bad as they say
Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you, do what you got to do
Do you, do you

[Chorus]

Now I'm at a corner, gonna check a sistren
Left alone to suffer
No I'm at the station, going to check a brethren
Charge with instigating revolution
See it ya, now me say we willy winkle

Where have you been
So skinning up your teeth, you know we not smiling
Because you upstairs downstairs committing sin
Political wise and you don't deserve a thing
Every sufferer suffer sometime or another
Though you see wiinna knit ganz and sweater
We belly could a full, but we still a suffer
House and land down suh it without furniture

Though wi export wi coffee send wi farm worker
Ex-amount a wi people still a suffer
The ghetto gal from down suh,
Man mi say she sweet like a wah
Man wi hail up Pam and big up Barbara
Special request to Panserella Big up the youth
Call Burro Chaga, soul man him dey yah
In nough gold chain, silver

[Chorus]

You see as to how wi get this riddim yah
Fe dance wid, you dance wid it you nuh
Same way you nuh
