Power to the workers 
More power  Power to the workers 
We need more power  Power to the workers 
Got to have more power  Power to the workers 
We need more power 

Free zone workers you working hard everyday 
But all the work you do don't get enough pay
I mad I still don't know why I still don't know why
Is minimum wage for your sufferation have no more toleration 

Hand to mouth can't work
Hand to mouth can't work
Hand to mouth business no it can't work
 School teachers you working hard educating 
But all the work you do they take you for a play thing 
I mad I still don't know why I still don't know why
Is little bit a pay for your contribution and you mean so much to the nation 
Me say me naah get enough good weh day
All thema work is like them naah get no pay
Naah get enough food from weh day
All the work we work is like we naah get no pay
 Watching everything go up in inflation 
Food price go up and man pay a go down
Ask some a them
Them telling short long
But in a corner we wings and a jam
 Ragga ragga a watch the notion 
Say we naah get no good food from weh day
Naah sow no good seed from weh day
Naah sow no good seed from weh day
Naah get enough food weh day
Our nurses saving lives everyday
But all the lives you save you don't get enough pay

I mad I still don't know why
I still don't know why
Is little bit a pay for your life savings 
What a grave they're digging 
Now our farmers them digging hard every day
But all the food they grow import them a say
That make me mad that make me mad mad mad mad
Mad mad mad mad

Is little bit a pay for your mama too and
Your sister got to shop for two
Oh civil servants you working hard everyday and
You sweating out for your pay
But I man still don't know why

 Still don't know why is little bit
A pay everyday what you got to take away
Woy! woy! woy! woy! woy!
[cho]
Me say me naah get enough good from weh day
All the talk we talk is like we naah
Naah get no good yood from weh day all the bawl we bawl
Say them no hear wha we a say
 Workers a the backbone a the whole island
Don't treat them right is total confusion
Can't go no doctor for no medication  School but no teacher no education 
Pay more dollars to the foundation 
Naah get enough pay from weh day musician a suffer but a play
Same way engineer a bawl how him pay too small 
Can't build him house with no concrete wall
Bass man a cry bout him can't get string 
Have the contacts and can't bring them in raggamuffin dj and sing

Lord naah get enough good from weh day 
All the talk we talk is like we naah Lord
Naah get no good yood from weh day
All the bawl we bawl say them no hear wha we a say
 Watching everything go up in inflation 
Food price go up and man pay a god down
Some a them
Them telling short
Long
 Ragga ragga deh pon the version  Ziggy zaggy a watch the movements
