Review The Song (1)



I woz

when a hear a lickle yout-man say

but wha, di police dem di stap it
an ah had woz to hap it

still

an mi want fi goh rave

I woz waakin doun di road

an´ if a lackit mi haffi pap it
an´ if a safe mi haffi crack it
ar chap it wid mi hatchit
but
mi haffi mek a raze
kaw mi come af age

seems racist. | Reviewer: noname | 5/22/13

Just cause a song is sung with a heavy Jamaican accent doesn't mean that the entire lyrics should be spelled phonetically.. it seems racist and a bit over the top on your translation, like you're mocking L.K.J. and all Jamaican people.
