Wrong Address
by Etana



Tried to get a job today but
When dem see the application dem say
If this is really where you reside
Please step outside
She asked them why
And they replied

We don't want no trouble
We don't want no trouble, no day
Cause lady where you come from
People die there everyday
For our safety that's where you should stay

She traded in her three-piece for two
Everything and anything she wanted to do
Went back to her side of town
In bed she lay down
All she could hear was

We don't want no trouble
We don't want no trouble, no day
Cause lady where you come from
People die there everyday
For our safety that's where you should stay

It's easier to give into the pressures of life
It's harder to get over when you try to do right
Just stay focused and keep your goals in site

Been through school, passed every test
Graduated above the rest
And yet the society still looks down
They do this, why?
They don't want us to try
And so they'll reply

We don't want no trouble
We don't want no trouble, no day
Cause lady where you come from
People die there everyday
For our safety that's where you should stay
