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
