"Daddy Dey Beg You Bwoy (516)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Daddy dey - beg You Bwoy
don’t make them - break You
nuh meck dem ...
duh - nuh meck dis shit~stem
broke You Son
they’ve laid their plans and have a cause
and at I an’I’s demise
they call it - laws
so as the holster is cleared
they wish for You and Your Crew
the untimely and unwanted incarceration
to a DEATH of broken Spirits
that’s why Son
none but You ... MUST - watch
de’street scenes - as Yuh - SKANK de’vibes
respecting each and being humble - to
dem strangers You BOUND to meet - but
as a Yout’ in the city
trust none - who wants to - befriend You
jus’ hang on in dey Youtiee - hold on strong
hang in dey … Mi Youtiee - hold on ‘trong.

Once a man, twice a child
A’m a-beggin’ You Son
don’t make them break You ... down
times are a different
there are a - constantly changing
I’ve LONG realized that - I can’t live vicariously
through the anxiety of Your curiosity
the experiences You and Your Crew
witness - on a day to day
are far beyond ... My realizations
so I stand empty handed
trying to find My Own directions
wishing ...
My actions had SET a standard
that ... My demeanor had
ESTABLISHED a stance
but Son - know as My Bwoy
that ... I know and carry Your sorrows

wished Your experiences
in Eden’s Garden
would always be
under My ... watchful eyes
as I know - there too
evil started its prophesy
AGAINST the invigorated
Black Skin
thus Son - I’m left with anger
to dry the tears Your experiences tell
so please Bwoy
don’t make them - break You
nuh meck dem ...
duh - nuh meck dem - WIN
oh My Bwoy
don’t make them - break You
nuh meck dem ...
duh - nuh meck dem - WIN
(jus’ hang on in dey Youtiee - hold on strong
hang in dey … Mi Youtiee - hold on ‘trong.)2x

Daddy dey - beg You Bwoy
don’t make them - break You
nuh meck dem ...
duh - nuh meck dis shit~stem
broke Yuh Son]
as (Yuh never missed
what yuh really [didn’t already enjoy)2x
that’s why I am fearing
either of Us
untimely LOSING ... the Other
so I say
just to make sure, You’re reminded - that
Your Big Bad Daddy
loves You
He adores You
an’ check dis - a reality
to outlive ones children
to where they’ve passed the worst
is a parent’s blessing
so forge on - unconditionally
that I can smile - Your Daddy can smile
the rewards in - My - Grand - Ones    His

knowing that - despite the trials and tribulations
Big Bad Daddy
is proud of You
believes ... in You
He’s boastful of ... Your “bustfulness”
as I’m entrust a gratitude ... in You
reaching out - to save You
(jus’ hang on in dey Youtiee - hold on strong
hang on in dey … Mi Youtiee - hold on ‘trong.)2x

Son - My beloved
there is a Life of temptations and the hand You draw
will prize You
its victor or victim
either case
look in the crystal ball
the repercussions ... on
Your Siblings and those closest to Your situation
should encourage You NOT to give in
but reap ALL  Your gifts - fe win
the CHAMPION of chosen directions
as Life is harsh
DEALING from a blank - deck
and SPEAKING with a split - twisted tongue
Your Life is valued then
by those who cares - to care - suh ...
(jus’ hang on in dey Youtiee - hold on strong
hang on in dey … Mi Youtiee - hold on ‘trong.)2x

Daddy dey - beg You Bwoy
don’t make them - break You
nuh meck dem ...
duh - nuh meck dis shit~stem
broke You Son
they’ve laid their plans and have a cause
and at I an’I’s demise, they call it - laws
so as the holster is cleared
they wish for You and Your Crew
the untimely and unwanted incarceration
to a death of broken Spirits
that’s why Son
none but You MUST - watch
the street scenes - as Yuh - skank de’vibes.
