FAMILY MAN

Woah

Him a di family man yes

Woah

Him a di family man yes

Say a di one Cameron

Woah

Him a di family man yes

 

He’s a family man

Family man

 

His girl is called Samantha-used to live in Notting Hill

He thinks he’s like the rest of us but that’s a bitter pill

I live a couple of miles away and can’t afford the rent

My money’s all spent

 

We’re in this thing together, said hes just like you and me

Embrace him like a brother welcome to my family

 

He’s a family man – Him a di family man yes

Him a di family man yes – Say a di one Cameron

He’s a family man – Him a di family man yes

Him a di family man yes – Say a di one Cameron – oh (REPEAT)

 

With the rising of inflation you curtail my liberty

I’m sitting here in darkness there’s no money on my key

No I’m not in Gaza I just cant afford the fuel

How could you be so cruel?

 

David – You’ve had your chance, its time to go

And next time round you won’t get the vote

We’re sick and tired of all your lies

You have no concept of our lives

 

He’s a family man

If you wanna trade places with me then come lets go

Family man

I bet you wouldn’t last one week in a flat eating beans on toast

 

Scrimp and save and sign on

Everyday you look for work but there’s none

All the while you’re trying to dodge eviction

Every time you raise your head a bill comes – OH

 

 

 

 

Rule di country – A tom foolery

You never listen once to what di people dem say

Say you nah one of us, no ride  pon bus

Mi can’t find the fare you nuh no ‘bout  rough

Come to mi crib, before we get rid

Let me show you what yuh last policy did – EH

Patronising, need reminding – Boarding school mi never go inside it

 

Family man

He’s a family man

He’s a family man….

 

David you’re my brother but you cant be listening

That’s why when re-election comes – you know you’ll never win

You’ve burnt down all your bridges and you’ve severed all your links

So here’s what I think    X 2

 

He’s a Family man

He’s a Family man

He’s a Family man

He’s a Family man

 

 

WE ARE THE PLAYTHINGS OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS

WRITTEN – MYKAELL S. RILEY / DUBULAH

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

(I’m not rich  Im not rich  I am poor)

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

 

 

You got that big house and you’ve got that big driveway

heres what I hear the haters say (hear them say)

I know they wanna be invited

To come and play the way we play – no way

 

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

We are the playthings of the rich

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

(know your rights, know your rights, know your rights)

We are the playthings of the rich  and famous

(they’re so wrong, they’re so wrong, they’re so wrong)

 

But they know not half the story

Things are not really what they seem

This life is not endless love and glory

They shouldn’t believe all they hear and see – no way

 

 

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

We are the playthings of the rich

We are the playthings of the rich and famous

(know your rights, know your rights, know your rights)

We are the playthings of the rich  and famous

 

Playthings

Rich and Famous

Rich and Famous

MADMEN (RULE MY LIFE)

 

WE CAN SEE NOW WHERE THE FUTURE LIES

COMPUTER DECIDES WHEN THE FOOD PRICE RISE

STOCKS AND SHARES MOVE THE PRICE OF BREAD

THE EYE IN THE SKY IS A DRONE OVERHEAD

 

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN RULE MY LIFE

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN RUN MY LIFE

 

STRESS AND STRAIN, AS THE MARKETS BUCK

PEOPLE TREAT ME LIKE THEY JUST DONT GIVE A F F F F FUCK

GOT LESS MONEY FOR MY WEEKLY SHOP

THE RAIN KEEPS FALLING (IT JUST WONT STOP)

 

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN RULE MY LIFE

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN NAME THEIR PRICE

 

 

 

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN RULE MY LIFE

THE MAD MADMEN THE MADMEN THE MADMEN NAME THEIR PRICE X 4

 

WE CAN SEE HOW THE FUTURE LIES

COMPUTER DECIDES WHEN THE FOOD PRICE RISE

STOCKS AND SHARES MOVE THE PRICE OF BREAD

THE EYE IN THE SKY IS A DRONE OVERHEAD

 

JUDGE, I WILL ENTER AN INNOCENT PLEA

BECAUSE I’M JUST ONE OF ENDLESS HUMANITY

IS IT A CRIME, JUST TO BE BORN?

ITS NOT A CASE OF INSANITY
