lyrics

Mi nah go badman for the sake of badman cah me nuh want no rude boy face screw,

Mi nah go harbour shark for the sake of harbour shark because bad men don't talk they do for instance,

You see one man inna one 3 piece suit some cris shine boot and no crew,
Over him back a bag weh long and black with a flap fi him han fi drop through,

You'll never notice fi him face in a crowd though he stands up so proud and true,
A cold-hearted shotter weh can deal with the matter not a guy could ever misconstrue,

He's all about business and him nah lef no witness if you inna di way you get slew,
So if you're flingin words better mek sure dem nuh hollow better know dem ha fi stick like glue.

Chorus

Mi nah go badman for the sake of badman cah me nuh want no rude boy face screw,

Mi nah go harbour shark for the sake of harbour shark because badman nuh talk dem do

Mi nah go badman for the sake of badman cah me nuh want no rude boy face screw,

Mi nah go harbour shark for the sake of harbour shark because bad men don't talk..

Verse 2

Dem seh dem ah gangster now, but dem ah gangster how? When dem never feel how copper steel get hot,

Chuh when the guns blow you are the first flat and low that's why you're fraudulent talk fi just stop,

And I can see you're scared cause I know you heard - seh real shotter guy follow one track,

And the ting dem weh you utter turn soft like butter shotter guy nah take no talk back,

Contract sign, carbine ah shine, Youth you better mind before it lodge up inna you spine – real gangster buss 9 dem, glisten and shine, nuh fraid ah no beast and nuh fraid fi serve time,

And if dem go ah jail pon man back dem nah climb,

Ah crazy you crazy or you out of your mind?

Pickney dem ah sing, church bell dem ah chime,

Come mek we find a way fi mek the mothers stop cry.

Chorus

Mi nah go badman for the sake of badman cah me nuh want no rude boy face screw,

Mi nah go harbour shark for the sake of harbour shark because badman nuh talk dem do
