Damian Marley – Living It Up Lyrics

Damian Marley – Living It Up Lyrics

[Chorus]
But have you made it out – out of the ghetto?
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy

Damian Marley

[Verse 1]
Trenchtown have a grandson
Growin’ up to be somebody
Gong to Zilly, yo me flow phenomenally
I am the kind of thing that doesn’t happen normally
I’m a one in a zillion yo dawg
If you want some, good life finally
Perhaps change your night time hobby
Come out of the old crime lobby
And benefit from your wisdom
Me ah gwaan live it up life is better than great
Every other day mi voice a dozen dubplate
Put in our hustle, we nuh sidung and wait
Tough up unnu muscle, no it’s never too late
Fi gwaan celebrate inna rich people place
Di likkle rastaman from Trenchtown fly di gate
With food inna plate and drinks inna crate
We sing till da neighbour dem wake

[Chorus]
But have you made it out – out of the ghetto?
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy

[Verse 2]
Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
Burnin’ Babylon and dem dirty ways
While watchin’ all the rich kids goin’ astray
Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
Big city life Kingston and Mobay
And if you think me sell out tell dem ain’t no way
So, live it up, Trenchtown to Rema
Riverton, Southside to Jungle
Sherlock, Garden to Spanglers
Payneland, Three Mile to Backto
Portmore, Seaview, Spanish Town
Nine Mile, Brownstown to Flankers
Falmouth, Westside, Orange Hill

[Chorus]
But have you made it out – out of the ghetto?
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
