"Elevate Yourself (3)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Wyan an’ wyan - I an’I and I gwa~a~an
educate Yourself - elevate Your Mind
and take Self seriously
inna dis yah moko~moko
don’t mind what they say
do the things that help You
as You see fit … fit for You
as it is You … yu’a livin’ wid You
You alone can realize Your wants
and needs in their times due
suh Yout’ - duh whey Yuh a’fe do
an’ gwa~a~an - SEEN.

Elevate Yourself take Self seriously
You are a part of Life’s beauty
if Yuh don’t help You … no-one will
suh reach and touch the sky
it’s NOT man’s limit
REACH - Yuh might light the star
stars a-complacent within You
do, do, do - pick-up Yuh banga~rang
please for Me and for You
through a self-enrichment - elevate You!

Yout’ an’ Yout’ - Young Bloods
educate Yuhself about …
the little things You find pleasing
all simple actions that makes You laugh
moods that makes You sad
and the memories … that brings forth tears
no-one knows but You sojourns
so do, do and do
do elevate You
as the VOICE of wisdom
will come from within - Your Daydreams
Youtiee … gwa~a~n
steppin’ as de’star - center-staged at large - a’ho~o …
it is for You to elevate Yourself
pass A - B - C
as 1 - 2 - 3 is the dumb man’s destiny.

Father-less, downtrodden Pickneys
make an effort of head held high
to see Your Dreams come through
time is passing by
wasted moments
NEVER to be recovered - again
so … take Yourself seriously
work towards Your reality
make Yourself a karma
that brings no-one a bad memory
and to Yourself
foster no ill-feelings of
jealousy, hate or envy … to rahtid.

Seek and create new opportunities
to bring Dreams to reality
elevate Your MIND
and develop a positive Self-image
suh out’a zero an’ naught
Yuh meck one bundle a’ sinting
for in the end when
You are forced to face the face You carry
what You are in display - to Your reservations
are the things …
that YOU, take YOU, through
suh Yout’ - duh whey Yuh a’fe do
an’ gwa~a~an - SEEN.

Know … fe meck Yuh bell sweet
sweat a’fe fall pon pavin’ streets
so … COME  ON
help Yuhrself to help You
towards an attainable reality
be compassionate
to Your wants and needs
as nothing – nuttin’ good
is accomplished without sincere obsession
this will reveal a passion
to the onlookers
who questions Your zest
to accomplish
as it is from amongst them - dem same wyan
You will see the true helping hand - stretched-forth.

Mother-less, tryin’ Young Bloods
don’t make false promises
that will hold You down - as
everybody is
looking … for himself
looking … for herself
we’re looking
for ourselves
every -- BODY
looking … for self - suh
pick-up Yuh banga~rang
please for Me and for You
through a self-enrichment - elevate You!

They will all
watch and say
this and that … that and this
and the things they say they do
“criticizingly” doing for
to helpin’ You
not always in the best interest
of Your sojourns
it is for You
to listen to and know - drumbeats
the timing within Your ego
and henceforth assert Self or
just patiently sit-back and wait
to reveal
You were on the track
all along
Youtiee … gwaan
steppin’ as de’star - center-staged at large - a’ho~o.

So do, do and do
DO - educate and elevate - YOURSELF
(as unbeknown … to You and Me
You - are counting on You)2x
Yout’ an’ Yout’ - Young Bloods
wyan an’ wyan - I an’I and I
unbeknown to You and Me
You - are counting on You
counting on You
counting on You … to rahtid.
