Granny say girl you have to guard yuh life
Some people out dey them eh really nice
As soon as yuh get likkle success
They smiling wit’ you but inside they really vex
So yuh have to protect yourself and be covered
‘Cause yuh happiness to dem is a bother 
So they cockin’ their ears to know yuh business
So they know how much potion they need to mix

 Cause they wukkin’

Watch them
Some of them envious people like

They find in life yuh get tings too easy
Opportunities and making good money
So instead of working hard for their own bread
They rather use Obeah and get your life instead

But some ah we leaders does get away with real bobol 
Think about it, it have man doin’ time for shop liftin’
An’ you could get a big charge for jus’ cussin’
So how it’s alleged people wipe out we treasury 
Dey eh even leave for we ah little doubles money
Up to now nobody eh face a jailer

Some ah them comin’ ah yuh life to cause problem
Some woman will do anything to get a man
Sweat rice, rub up, push on they sam sam
So stop tell yuh friend all yuh man business
You talking, she making a checklist 
While you boastin’ that’s my friend from Senior Sec
She by the Obeah man sacrificing yuh neck 

 Cause they likin’

Always talking ‘bout morals and standards

They singing why this soca artist in we ting
But before soca is calypso I started in 
So I folding my arms like All Rounder

Look all yuh stop it
