Mr. Vegas - Gi Wi Back Wi Sweet Jamaica Lyrics




Mamma si dung and a wonder
If har pickney dem still love her
It breaks mi heart, fi si har tears run like a river
A nuh the same woman this weh mi grow fi know
Mi nuh want unu tek har fi poppy show
Shi a try pay back the money weh shi owe
Shi have so much debt shi wah stop from barrow

Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Want back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica
Unu don't sell har off, mek wi keep Jamaica, Jamaica
[x2]

Yes I am so Jamaican, so Jamaican
Shi have a lot a bright pickey and dem cyan even get fi excel
Cyan afford the school fee, so dem get expel
The most talented one inna jail cell
Har big daughter head hot nuh hell
From wah day mamma nah do so well
It look like shi hear say har name ago sell

Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Want back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica
Unu don't sell har off, mek wi keep Jamaica, Jamaica
[x2]

Yes I am so Jamaican, so Jamaican
Fi buy everything a foreign, nutten nah plant nor sow
That a nuh di Jamaica weh mi know
Wi sell every wi own to Mr Chin and Mr Lu
That a nuh di Jamaica weh mi know
Some a mi Bredda and sister run weh gone live inna snow
Say them only miss the sun and breeze when it blow
Mi woulda want all Fi run weh too
But a father God mi trust and cut and guh through

I am so Jamaican, so Jamaican
Yes I am so Jamaican, so Jamaican

Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Want back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica
Unu don't sell har off, mek wi keep Jamaica, Jamaica
[x2]

Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Want back mi sweet Jamaica, Jamaica
Gi mi back mi sweet Jamaica
Unu don't sell har off, mek wi keep Jamaica, Jamaica
[x2]

    +Bill Buffet Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton they are saying are both in prison but are two of many of the most talented artists in Jamaica

    nevergetthenameiwant

    Desmond Carby how you interpret that line to mean he was talking specifically about kartel! come on now - got to work on those comprehension skills.

    i dont understand what there saying but i love it so much 💜 i feel it yeaaah lets dance 💃

    Apocs

    He sings about the things that happens in Jamaica, His pride, his concern that they sell out his countrys businesses..........Mixed with places on the Island and food............All this is weaved in old Jamaican rythms that came before reggae, like Mento, traditional drums and flutes backs it up to make this song a slice of Jamaica from older days until now............If you listen carefully you can "decrypt" the Patwah he is speaking, maybe not all of it at once ( One, One coco full basket  A Jamaican proverb that means slow and steady and you reach your goal in time )................ But dont just listen to me....Im Swedish......Hahahahahaha.........One Love........ ( Man noh dun cross ah riva noh haffi cuss alligiata lang mout lang )

    Ik De

    +Apocs oh thanks soo much to telling me this 😛😛

    Apocs

    My pleasure.......Jamaicans are the sweetest ( with straight backs, walks tall and pride ).....but they dont have it good at all......they struggle against poverty.....All the money tends to "fly away" and never come the Jamaicans to use......Usually its criminal elements, politicians, international business that keeps the profits........But there way of look at things.......Its basic,true and always lands that love and understanding are the way to go..........
