When I write it's not just about speaking to the people, but also speaking for them. This is what I hear them saying. We are tired of disunity, disorder and destruction. This is a time for peace, a time for healing...a Year For Love!


LYRICS

Intro

Woy yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea
Woy yea yea yea eh eh

Tell me wha dey fighting for
Wha dey killing for
We doh need no more now
So tell dem wicked people

Chorus

Fire go bun dem
Fire go bun dem woh
Oh lawd, ah say dis is de year for love (for love)
Fire go bun dem
Fire go bun dem woh
Say little boy you ain’t bad at all (no)

Verse 1

Another one just gone
Boy yuh beat yuh chest and smile,
Say you’s ah madman
Another young boy fall
Yuh so careless dat night oh you’z ah badman?
Badman is a man who does defend woman
And protect de young ones by any means, lawd
Yuh ain’t no bad man boy, nah.
Yuh ain’t no bad man
A real badman does make his own decisions
He don’t need anyone. He only need his God
Yuh ain’t no bad man boy, nah.
Yuh ain’t no bad man

Pre-Chorus

So sit down, rock back
Tell dem ah doh need no strap
To defend my people from wicked and evil woy
So sit down, rock back, big man look for a work
Yuh too damn evil
If they distress my people then

Chorus

Fire go bun dem
Fire go bun dem woh
Oh lawd, ah say dis is de year for love (for love)
Fire go bun dem
Fire go bun dem woh
Say little boy you ain’t bad at all (no)

Tell me wha dey fighting for (wha dey fighting for)
Wha dey killing for (wha dey killing for)
We doh need no war now
There’s no need
So tell me wha dey fighting for
(Wha dey fighting for)
Wha dey killing for (wha dey killing for)
We doh need no war now
I say we doh want no more now

Verse 2

A real badman doh go round raping woman
Influencing young ones to kill a boy, nah
Yuh ain’t no badman boy, nah.
Yuh ain’t no badman
A real badman works for whatever he wants
And he don’t need no gun, he full of joy now
Dah’s ah badman, soldier.
Yuh ain’t no badman
