  • (Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!)
    See them fighting for power (ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!),
    But they know not the hour (ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh-wa!),;
    So they bribing with their guns, spare-parts and money,
    Trying to belittle our
    Integrity now.
    They say what we know
    Is just what they teach us;
    And we're so ignorant
    'Cause every time they can reach us (shoobe, doo-wa)
    Through political strategy (shoo-be, doo-wa);
    They keep us hungry (shoobe, doo-wa),
    And when you gonna get some food (shoobe, doo-wa),
    Your brother got to be your enemy, we-e-ell!

    Ambush in the night,
    All guns aiming at me;
    Ambush in the night,
    They opened fire on me now.
    Ambush in the night,
    Protected by His Majesty.
    Ooh-wee, ooh-wee. Ooh-wa-ooh!
    (Ooh-wee) Ooh-wee, ooh-wee (ooh-wa), Ooh-wa!
    Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh wa-ooh!
    Ooh-wee, ooh-wee, ooh wa-ah!

    Well, what we know
    Is not what they tell us;
    We're not ignorant, I mean it,
    And they just cannot touch us;
    Through the powers of the Most-I (shoobe, doo-wa),
    We keep on surfacin' (shoobe, doo-wa);
    Thru the powers of the Most-I (shoobe, doo-wa),
    We keep on survivin'.

    Yeah, this ambush in the night
    Planned by society;
    Ambush in the night;
    They tryin' to conquer me;
    Ambush in the night
    Anyt'ing money can bring;
    Ambush in the night
    Planned by society;
    Ambush in the night [fadeout]
