Wooh ooh ooh, and yu don't have to wonder why
Wooh ooh ooh
How do yuh feel when yuh have yuh meal
and the people outta street can't find food fi eat?
It nuh pretty inna di city, what a pity
Things tricky get sticky cause di place under heat.
How yuh fi send out frustrated police

when di violence increase?
A hungry man is an angry man

The people dem fed-up for dem nuh have no food fi eat.
