 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

My pocket is week, my heart is willing 
Ah want a pound a rice, but can't find a shillin 
Can't buy the chicken back, much less the chicken 
Turn left and right is pure gunshot a fling 

Every whey mi guh is wicked song them a sing 
Now hear mi now Queens, and hear mi now Kings 
All over this world, local and Foreign 
Black and white, mi naah prejudice skin 

Now hear mi mister Lou, mister Wong and mister Chin 
To kill another man what good does that bring 
I feel it so much till cold bump take mi skin 
Mi head start to hurt mi, and mi eyes dem a spin 

Who give the guns, who give the crack 
No-one to take the blame 
And a who import the guns and cocaine 
And a who innaculate the ghetto youths brain 

And mobilize dem inna this Bloodsport game 
Say if you want to rich, you haffi kill Shane 
And wicked enough to kill him mother miss Jane 
Mek dem say you a di wickedest man pon the lane 

And if you want you respect fi long like a train 
Well you better make shot fall like a rain 
You haffi put one foot pon then concord plane 
Hey, you better sell twenty kilo a cocaine
