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



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
