Intro You living the life in the ghetto paradise You living that life in the ghetto paradise
Verse 1 Mi nuh know how mi survive the hardship weh in ya Life never sweet like ah chocolate vanilla Train line mi born mi nuh born inna villa Likkle monkey watch how you ah talk to Gorilla Cah, the government buy arms give the killer Two party ah flex like a party dem inna Accepting presents from foreign government Weh still ah fool dem and a school dem and a khaki dem in Good god of Moses and Rodney the Killer Poor people fed up and we can't sim simmer Can hardly survive as a blasted singer Much less a baller who is a rahtid winger Have a right foot like a David Villa Him mother still ah sell inna market Jamrock is a precious stone still it's far from a diamond, take it from I man
Chorus Even though Jamaica nice You gotta live to save your life After the sunset comes the darkness of the night Better open up your eyes You've gotta read between the lines Living in the ghetto paradise
Verse 2 Jamaica spiritually irie Pretty and it nice Still a ghetto paradise and mi nah apologise It Slippery and it slidey Di government ah lie Dem trick we and dem buy we Di chicken and di fries Spend a little of your time You giggle and you smile But even if you try You couldn't live some ah we life Riverton ah bun, di likkle pickney dem a cry Di chubby bottle dem ah pile up on the river side And den you talk how Jamaica sweet Wah sweet you will rotten your teeth And in the streets it nuh nice and easy Shot a beat, ghetto youths can't sleep And then you talk how Jamaica nice You say you living in a paradise Poverty whistle like a Christmas breeze, yeah You better take my foolish advice
Chorus Even though Jamaica nice You gotta live to save your life After the sunset comes the darkness of the night You better open up your eyes And read between the lines When you're living in the ghetto paradise
Bridge Survival Only the fittest Shall make it out of this jungle alive Survival Jah is my witness The darkest hours of the night is just before daylight
Chorus Even though Jamaica nice You gotta live to save your life After the sunset comes the darkness of the night You better open up your eyes Gotta read between the lines When you're living in the ghetto paradise
Outro Living in the ghetto, ghetto paradise Living in the ghetto, ghetto paradise Living in the ghetto, ghetto paradise Living in the ghetto, ghetto paradise
