BOOM BAM DENG

 

The world is like a wetto…

All over the world is like a ghetto

Poor people say so

Ghetto youths are dying…

I’m singing Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are crying…

 

So rasta youth a sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youth are dying…

I’m singing Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are crying…

 

Oh mamma they have no mercy on the poor

Ghetto youths need to take care some more

Yes my mothers and my fathers are poor

Yes my bigger brother gone on a tour

 

When rasta youths a sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youth are dying…

Cho raggamuffin sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are crying…

I hear the world a sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are dying…

I’m singing Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are crying…

 

Watch this!

You got some man a go round

A call themselves big-man

A dem issue the guns

A dem bayonets and bombs

Youths and youths dem so foolish

They can’t understand

They must not take the guns

And the bayonets and bombs

Kills dem brothers and dem sisters, fathers and moms

And a mister big man come back

For the gun and the bomb

Well U no dead same time

Dem get a sentence to hang

That’s why the whole world help me sing this a song ya!

 

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are dying…

So rasta youths a sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ohhh mamma they have no mercy on the poor

Ghetto youths they are crying for more

Yes they are sleeping on the floor

Yes they are left out the door

 

So rasta youth a sing

Boom Bam Deng

Ghetto youths are crying…

Poor people say so

Even Texas, way down south

Look and tell them seh

For Ghetto youths are crying…

Ghetto youths are dying…

And Ghetto youths are crying…
