Yeah
You know seh nuff ghetto yute out deya today breddrin wah

You nah want fe get caught in the game
[Refrain]
Dem ah wan fi be gangsters
Tell me what they're fighting for (So tell me what they fighting for)

2015 the ghetto gettin' hot
No body can get a job
So dem ah turn drug shotta
Dem ah sell drugs to the people and nuh see what the matter
Dem nuh talk bout food when
Dem got big mac-ah
Dem nuh talk bout football when dem gwan take shotter
Dem ah buss shot inna di street and dem buss in the blacka
See mi, hard life we know about dat-ah
Yes, mi know about scraping from the bottom of the butter
Mi know how it feel to lose your mother and your brother
Well, seh comin' in now seh with the bass and fire
Seh I man Charlie P mi never gwan retire
Mi have to stop the yutes that squeeze the guns and fire
Wan fi take dem inna di dance where the vibes dem higher
Now all around the world seh Charlie P pon flyer (true)
Cuh mi ah the original riddim rider (brrr)
Seh sweet Cali weed inna di chalwa (fire)
Yes ah yes mi take a draw, higher!
[Refrain]
Dem ah want fi be gangsters
Tell me what they're fighting for (So tell me what they fighting for)
Dem ah want fi be gangsters

Seh as a youth mi had it hard
As a youth mi had it tuff
As a youth mi nuh have much
But mi had my family's love
Some youths nah even have that
Some youth nah even know dem dad
Some youth nah even know dem mother
We tellin' you now it sad
Some youth dem gwan join a gang and dem a feel like big man
Ghetto youth around the world from Japan to Finland
Some youth have AK and big machine gun
Some youth nuh even gwan fi make it till the age of twenty-one
Seh, some youth nuh even make it till the age of fifteen
As a youth I was told you haffi live your life clean
Seh, always treat the people how you want fi be treat
So I did, now i'm here seh mashin' up pon the scene[Refrain]
Dem ah wan fi be gangsters
Tell me what they're fighting for

Fighting without no war

[Verse]
Yes seh when mi walk in the ghetto no it's not dangerous
Seh, all of the ghetto people dem gwan show mi love
Seh, all around the world ghetto people stand up
We nah let no babylon fi put you in some handcuff
We give them sixteen tons of di pressure
Seh hit them with bass watch them bottom lip quiver
The dibby dibby crackhead dem ah shake and shiver
But you know dem not as bad as the ones that deliver
Mi seh, dem ah
You know your life gettin' better
Seh if you trust your brothers
Yes if you trust your bredda
Seh dubplate mi on it that a heavy like lead-ah
You know seh Charlie P mi ah the lyrical veter-veter[Refrain]
Lord, dem ah wan fi be gangster
Tell me what they're fighting for (So tell me what they fighting for)
Lord, dem ah wan fi be gangster
Fighting without no war
Bah-wah-da-dan-dan-dan-dan-deh!
