About Untold Stories

Untold Stories is a song by Buju Banton that was recorded and released in 1995 on the album 'Til Shiloh. Unlike most of Banton's records up until that point, the track is distinguished by its stripped-down production values, acoustic guitar accompaniment by Glen Browne, and socially and politically conscious lyrics. In 2010, Angus Taylor wrote of the song, "Even card-carrying haters of [Banton's] prior output could not help but be stirred by its sincere, gritty charms."In 2005, Sinéad O'Connor included her version of the song on her album of reggae covers, Throw Down Your Arms.

While I'm living
Thanks I'll be giving
To the most high you know

I am living while I am living to the father I will pray
Only he knows how we get through everyday
With all the hike in the price
Arm and leg we have to pay
While our leaders play

All I see people a rip and a rob and a grab
Tief never love fe see tief wid long bag
No love for the people who a suffer real bad
Another toll to the poll may God help we soul
What is to stop the youths from get out of control
Full up of education yet no own no payroll
The clothes on my back have countless eyehole
I could go on and on the full has never been told

I am living while I am living to the father I will pray
Only he knows how we get through everyday
With all the hike in the price
Arm and leg we have to pay
While our leaders play

Who can afford to run will run
But what about those who can't they will have to stay
Opportunity a scarce, scarce commodity
In these times I say 
When mama spend her last and send you go class
Never you ever play
It's a competitive world for low budget people
Spending a dime while earning a nickel
With no regards to who it may tickle
My cup is full to the brim
I could go on and on the full has never been told

I could go on and on the full has never been told
I am living while I am living to the father I will pray
Only him know how we get through everyday
With all the hike in the price
Arm and leg we have to pay
While our leaders play

All I see people a rip and a rob and a grab
Tief never love fe see tief wid long bag
No love for the people who a suffer real bad
Another toll to the poll may God help we soul
What is to stop the youths from get out of control
Full up of education yet no own no payroll
The clothes on my back have countless eyehole
Could go on and on and the full has never been told

I am living while I am living to the father I will pray
Only he knows how we get through everyday
All the hike in the price
Arm and leg we have to pay
While our leaders play

Who can afford to run will run
But what about those who can't they will have to stay
Opportunity a scarce, scarce commodity
In these times I say 
When mama spend her last and send you go class
Never you ever play
It's a competitive world for low budget people
Spending a dime while earning a nickel
With no regards to who it may tickle
My cup is full to the brim
I could go on and on the full has never been told
I could go on and on the full has never been told
