  • [INTRO:]
    Beware for the Shottas dem strap
    rastaman ah tell di youths dem fill low di Glock
    Beware now dat cause heart attach and dem nuh care (no ooo)

    Its a shame to see brothers killing themselves
    Wasting energy, should be uplifting themselves
    Who's di enemy putting shots on the shelf
    What we need is brain-food and belly-food for our health

    So don't get caught up in a petty passion
    Be careful of dem guns and ammunition
    And let us make a change in meditation
    Cause we could use the strength for cultivation (my lord!)

    [CHORUS:]
    Beware for the Shotta dem strap
    Rastaman ah tell di youths dem nuh rat-ta-ta-tat
    Beware now dat cause heart attach and dem nuh care and dem wi shot yuh inna yuh poop-poop-poop
    Beware now the whole place hot Rastaman ah tell di youths dem fill low di Glock
    beware now dat cause heart attach and dem nuh care (no noooo)

    So much gun crime man ah shot man ah night time
    Read yuh head lines lord it really blows my mind
    School children targeted in the broad daylight
    Dem ah dead fi cell phones, also inna drive by
    Police ah dead to, one ah day
    Dem shot di sheriff and ah come fi di deputy (Gezzz!)
    All woman dem nuh partial
    Wah mek deh kill di old lady and di old man

    Beware for the Shotta dem strap
    Rastaman ah tell di youths dem fi 'low di Glock
    Beware now dat cause heart attach and dem nuh care and dem wi shot out you poop-poop
    Beware now the whole place hot Rastaman ah tell di youths dem nuh ra-ta-tat
    beware now dat cause heart attach and dem nuh care and dem wi shot you ina yuh poop-poop-poop

    Blood flooding the streets
    Rude bwoys and police ah compete
    Because dem turn to RAS-Tafari
    Then all and all wouldda alright
    Now here we go again
    another man drop flat again
    Go ahead and tell yuh friend, di streets nuh safe again
    While dem searching for terrorist
    Youths dem die for foolishness

    [CHORUS]

    Its ashame to see brothers killing themselves
    Wasting energy, should be uplifting themselves
    Why is di enemy putting shots on the shelf
    What we need is brain-food and belly-food for our health

    So don't get caught up in a petty passion
    Be careful of dem guns and ammunition
    And let us make a change in meditation
    Cause we could use the strength for cultivation
