Levy, Barrington - Teach The Youths Lyrics




Went away to a far far land, spent some time in New York,
Most of my time inna England, no welcome back to my bornland.

Come from england to make some vibes, just to keep my fans alive

But the vibes they're teaching me, that don't right in my book, no
Yes the vibes they're teaching me, that don't right in my book, like

No put de day nah put dem no weh, no put de day lawd I went dem a stay,
Sex an guns jus keep dem to de ground horse tonic a mek de girls dem panic

Teach de youths dem how to live,
Teach de youths dem how to survive
Hold your corner and save your life and thats no jive.

Some of de youths dem make a living by selling some stones,
While some make a living wiping down cars,
Cant you see the times your living in? the people are suffering.

Don't teach me nothing just teach me something
Don't teach me nothing just teach me something
Hold your corner save your life and thats no jive.

My heart, my poor little heart, my heart cries to see the youth.

No put de day nah put dem no weh, no put de day lawd I went dem a stay,
Sex an guns jus keep dem to de ground horse tonic a mek de girls dem panic

Teach de youths dem how to live,
Teach de youths dem how to survive
Hold your corner and save your life and thats no jive.

    Horse tonic,nuh put it deh, nuh bend down, these were dances that were very popular in 1980s during the rise of dancehall music and culture. These lyrics were very popular by the dancehall DJ of era. So what he is saying is those lyrics are just for waisting your time, you need lyrics that's going to teach the youths of that generation on how to survive and better themselves in that post 1980 election Jamaica environment that was rapidly becoming more and more self centered, selfish and increasingly harder to survive and more violent.
