Nothing to Smile About
by Morgan Heritage



(Intro)
Nuff people come to Jamaica and nuh know how we live
Think seh EVERYTHING nice through we full of vibes and thing
Dem same one feel it to dem heart when dem get fi overstand di real thing yeaah

(verse 1)
Mi deh ya town one day
A par with a white man weh come all the way from Norway
And him turn to mi and say
How comes Jamaica full of so much screwface
Same time mi lift mi head to the sky
And a tear drop fall from mi eye
Mi say my youth come we go out for a drive
Mek mi show you why mi cry

(chorus)
Look pon di gully side
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Look at that hungry child yeah
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Look at the school weh deh youth dem go fi get dem education
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Look at the conditions of our police stations
Do you see anything fi smile bout

(verse 2)
Same time the bredda say
How can a nation be living this way
And the next thing him say
How can the government play so many games
Same time mi heart fall to the ground
Cause there's much more where that come from
Certain place deh ya worse than some
Youth man come

(chorus)
And take a look pon Riverton
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Look pon Payne Land
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Francas, Mobay and Sufferers Heights inna Spain
Do you see anything fi smile bout
Hope Flats, Kentire, Motombay - they're all the same
Do you see anything fi smile bout

(Intro)
Nuff people come to Jamaica and nuh know how we live

Nuff likkle place deh ya inna Jamdown today
Weh nottin' no deh deh fi smile bout
