Wait a minute let me set the record straight
You need to listed for a moment or two
Hear the accent don't get it twisted
My Mama didn't raise no fool
Know you think that you got me figured out friend
When you really haven't got a clue
So take a listen from this 'Island' boy
This coconut maybe smarter than you
So I say

[Chorus]
Don't judge me you don't know me
Don't think I am some small town pony
Got nothing upon me
You ain't walking in my shoes
I'm just one out of many
Hailin' from a third world country
Got nothing upon me
You ain't walking in my shoes
 
Learnt my lessons form my humble beginnings
And I wouldn't have it no other way
Became a man onna streets of Kingston where
the bible was the art of the day
I choose the best at my main competition
And I'm always on top of my game
So don't be blinded by my race or my gender
Cause we really all one in the same

Don't judge me you don't know me
Don't think I am some small town pony
Got nothing upon me
You ain't walking in my shoes
I'm just one out of many
Hailin' from a third world country
Got nothing upon me
You ain't walking in my shoes
 
No I won't stop gotta make it to the top
Hell no I won't stop
Aiming for the sweet spot
Powers to the bald heads and the dreadlocks
Let me make it clear no we won't flop
Got a plan got to make it anyway I can
Putting in the work with my own two hands
Better check it respect it
I'm a man I'm a West Indian

[Chorus: x2]
