LYRICS

Chant:
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem
Ain’t no games when we come (tell dem)
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem
Pack up dey things and run - (twice)

Chorus:
Ah want yuh tuh tell dem, Ah want yuh tuh tell dem
That we not afraid, We not afraid, we never ’fraid
of no wickedness or blight, darkness always comes to light
so we not afraid, we not afraid, we never ’fraid


Verse 1:
(gih dem) Since de day I born I’m a champion
(So I come to gih dem) Settle for nothing less than number one
(ah telling yuh – gih dem) More determined than ever
(gih dem) Much more resourceful and clever
We resolve is strong so to bring we down’
They could never ever
(gih dem) Yuh better pack yuh things up and run and hide
Ah telling yuh now, You are not the first fool who tried
To wrangle with me, But it plain to see
You are nowhere in my category
Doh waste yuh time messing with me
because yuh done dead already

Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (tell dem)
Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (warn dem)
Gallery meh belly full, cause ah way too powerful
Yes it plain to see that I’m unstoppable

Chorus:
Ah want yuh tuh tell dem, Ah want yuh tuh tell dem
That we not afraid, We not afraid, we never ’fraid
cause yuh sure to lose yuh life, with a knife in a gun fight
so we not afraid, we not afraid, we never ’fraid


Verse 2:
(gih dem) A little chance so they could apologize
(So I come to – gih dem) A little chance and then cut them down to size
(ah telling yuh gih dem) Them is food without flavour
(gih dem) I is de spice and de pepper
I is de rainstorm in town that come down strong
Mash up yuh umbrella
(gih dem) Yuh better pack yuh things up and run and hide
Ah telling yuh now, You are not the first fool who tried…
To wrangle with me, But it plain to see
You are nowhere in my category
Doh waste yuh time messing with me
because yuh done dead already

Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (tell dem)
Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (warn dem)
Gallery meh belly full cause ah way too powerful
Yes it plain to see that I’m unstoppable

Chorus:
Ah want yuh tuh tell dem, Ah want yuh tuh tell dem
That we not afraid, We not afraid, we never ’fraid
cause yuh sure to lose yuh you’s cat in dog fight
so we not afraid, we not afraid, we never ’fraid


Chant:
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem
Ah just want yuh tuh tell dem tell dem

Chorus:
Ah want yuh tuh tell dem, Ah want yuh tuh tell dem
That we not afraid, We not afraid, we never ’fraid
cause yuh sure to lose yuh life, with a knife in a gun fight
so we not afraid, we not afraid, we never ’fraid


Verse 3:
(gih dem) A lil chance just for them to say dey say
(So I come to - gih dem)
A little chance cause they love to dingolay
(ah tellin’ yuh - Gih them) a little chance to play dey face
(gih dem) But make sure they face disgrace
Ah go cut yuh smile make yuh cry like a child

(gih dem) Yuh better pack yuh things up and run and hide
Ah telling yuh now, You are not the first fool who tried…
To wrangle with me, But it plain to see,
You are nowhere in my category
Doh waste yuh time messing with me
because yuh done dead already.

Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (tell dem)
Gallery doh give we more cause to gallery (warn dem)
Gallery meh belly full cause ah way too powerful
Yes it plain to see that I’m unstoppable

Chorus…. and Chant to end
