"Ignorant Him Ignorant (62)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Qu’ah to back-foot …
ignorant Him ignorant
ignorance -- makes Him ignorant
but still - Him say
Him sensible
We a’de biggest beater of Ourselves
ignorantly
Brothers killing Brothers
daily
mistreating Sisters
hourly
abusing Their Children -- wow
it’s the Ignorant who suffers
as Their ignorance
will soon make Them suffer - so
while yuh stand there
sayin’ yu’r sayings
they’re masturbating
with Our Peoples’ Minds
what - a - shame … a’ shame.


Brothers … they come down
down so down on WE
I an’I am becoming
the endangered Species
de Righteous - Conscious
becoming
an endangered Species
in Our Own time
what - can - We - do … can We do?


What likkle consideration an’ duh … dey ‘bout
especially for Those
now displaced to the Inner Cities
drugs an’ disease widespread
lifespan is bound to be shortened
there is no meaningful employment
much less a’ sparin’ cor’nas
fe pitch cardboards … from staring public
suh … self-disrespect
pon de’rampage - as
young boys a’ race fe sell demselves
faster than the ‘beauty’
that once pose … these wretched streets
and the crimes related
to ‘hungry-belly’
‘cause Us to live in
the prisons … of mercies
the prisons of … shame
live inna - de’prisons … of despair
the prisons of … want, jealousy and greed
while they build
ON  WE
the Corner Stones
they so many times … refuse
they time an’ time again … forget
while We continue to have
no decent place
to rest Our Heads
with disrespect
it is on the Humble
that ignorance steps ignorantly
what - a - shame … a’ shame.


Brothers … killing Brothers
when - DAILY
mistreating Sisters
how - BADLY
abusing Children - WHY
it’s the Ignorant who suffers
as Their ignorance
will soon make Them SUFFER
what - can - We - do … can We do?


‘Ear Mi dying-trial
ignorant Him ignorant
ignorance -- makes Him ignorant
but still - Him say
Him sensible
We a’de biggest beater of Ourselves
ignorantly
Brothers … they’re coming down
down so down … pon I an’I
careless an’ its ness
sid-doung a’ mus~mus tail
a’ try catch cool breeze
den dem “boastedly” com’a street
a’ chat pure fart
they’re masturbating
with Our Minds
We are becoming
an endangered Species
in Our Own time
what - a - shame … a’ shame.


Serious now:
not only is improvishment
dey steal de’bite out’a de’dogs
roamin’ pon de’streets
zinc-pan dey find company
fe last year’s leak
an’ police a’fe drive ‘round
five an’ six - seven
inna a-scared company
an’ it a’get cheaper - fe teck public transport
dan the hustling
mini gi’mi~gi’mi vans - o~oh
an’ givin’-up … ‘ave some dey sid-doung
a’ teck wood’ead … a’ get batty bruise - as
oh shit  a’fe ask dickiee excuse
fe push com’a street
an’ yuh really know sey
shit gone get stink - gone to de’dogs
when “dear God’s” preachers
are embarrassed
fe come face the ridicules
as dem collect … poor people’s
penny an’ a-pennies
with disrespect
it is on the Humble
that ignorance steps ignorantly
they’re masturbating
with Our Minds
what - can - We - do… can We do?

WHAT - CAN - WE - DO … CAN - WE - DO?
