Everyman fih father a fatherless child

Cause wih kyaah mek dih youths get too wild

Show dem some love and mek dem smile

Cause without love the youths get so vile

Everyman fih father a fatherless child


Cause wih kyaah mek dih youths get too wild


Show dem some love and mek dem smile


Cause without love the youths get so vile

It foolish fih treat dih fish fih put back inna dutty water


Like parents weh only concern bout fih dem son and daughter


And pay no attention to the environment weh dem grow up inna


The girl on the streets and the boy an the corner


Yuh neva stop fih check out if dem alright


Yuh neva know seh dem and fih yuh youth did so tight


Yuh couldn’t insulate them, try as yuh might


From the stray bullets from the gun fight

Your child is yours and so it every other


Every black boy and girl a sister & brother


Child caring is a task wih haffi do together


Just play yuh role as a father or mother


To your child or to a needy other


Give him a chance so he won’t be a bother


Give them hope fih climb up the ladder


So life over death is the choice they would rather


 


3


Why would a youth, loot and shoot and nuh care?


Living life in the fast lane and nuh have no fear?


Why do they have such a cold and empty steer?


Why is it so hard for them to reach somewhere?


Who will tell them why life is so unfair?


Who’ll help make their burdens something they can bear?


Where is the man of love and the woman who care?


Those who want to make a difference come over here
