Tarrus Riley - Jamaican Proverbs Lyrics

Mama never wrong

Mama never wrong
Papa never wrong
Never wrong
Listen to the foundation you know

Is like my grandmother have her own language when she talk to me
Me overstand
Sometime she nagging, but one thing she never wrong (never wrong)
Kiba yuh mouth young man
She tell me
Ah nuh everyone you fi nyam from
No follow bad company
Focus me grandson
Of all these lessons she taught me

One thing stands out in the race of life you cyaan lose hope
She said Son

Wah nuh dead no dash way
Young man
Wah nuh dead no dash way
She said son
Wah nuh dead no dash way
That means
Don't give up
Don't loose hope
And everything will work out

Well, my grandfather have him own language more time me never like listen
Mama teach me nuff things but papa do dem much different
No put all yuh money inna earing bank, locosion dem ah wicked
Try hol'up yuh head and have ambition work hard for your things yah man
Out of all of Grandpa's teachings one thing stands out
In the race of life you cyaan loose hope
He said son

(Wah nuh dead nuh dead)
Hey when nuh dead no dash way
Young man
Wah nuh dead no dash way
Hear me mhm
Wah nuh dead no dash way
From you have life nuh give up the fight and everything will work out

Well in my community which part me live everybody move like family
Whether friend or foe with toe to toe no intruder can harm we.
Yes ear and bling, see and deaf no
Know when the news carry
Six times fall seven you rise
My youth keep on trying

After all these reasons and teachings one thing stands out
In the race of life you cyaan lose hope
Listen son

Hey! Wah nuh dead no dash way
Huh! Young man (young man)
Wah nuh dead no dash way
Listen me sister
Hey! Wah nuh dead no dash way
From you have life nuh give up the fight and everything will work out

(Nuh weh nuh dead nuh dead nuh dash way)
Nuh bother dash way
Yuh tick for yuh cross the water
Oh Wat wat a go pumpkin belly
Fire deh a mus mus taial him tink a cool breeze

Wah gone bad a morning
Caah come good a evening
To everything there's a seasons
Wah nuh dead nuh dash it weh
