RIGHT OR WRONG (I FI)

A rush hour come,
And you see the people run in
Some ups & downs but you know
Natty keep on running
You coulda old coulda young
You coulda weak coulda strong
And you know you coulda get right or wrong
“Right or wrong”

And though the time might ruff
Make we cool it now man
And though the livin’ is ruff
Make we chill it now man

One time,
Two time,
Come make we chill make we chill ya
Cool come make we cool make we rule ya

Hold on when you hear me
Cool down when you hear me
Dem mussi ina dem water
Dem mussi ina dem water woy!

Man get vex, woman get vex
Cooh deh natty dread you mussi get some flex
Man get vex, woman get vex
Don’t double trouble woy!

Ease off the situation
Come ya make we talk to the people
Don’t screw your pretty faces people
Ride on, trod a mount Zion
Talk and groove with the people
Got to tell you say, me no want screw face around y’all!

And though the time might ruff,
Make we cool it now man
And though the livin’ is ruff
Make we chill it now man

Well if a Gideon come,
Shouldn't follow people worrying…
Man a struggle,
Wonder how the people dem surviving...
You coulda setup a plan, well step it now man,
Uptown Downtown a yard and abroad,
Come make we chill it now
Lord a make me tell you seh 'fi gather right now.

And though the time might ruff,
Make we cool it now man
And though the livin’ is ruff
Make we chill it now man

Hold on when you hear me
Cool down when you hear me
Dem mussi ina dem water
Dem mussi ina dem water woy!

Man get vex, woman get vex
Cooh deh natty dread you mussi get some flex
Man get vex, woman get vex
Don’t double trouble woy!

Ease off the situation
Come ya make we talk to the people
Don’t screw your pretty faces people
Ride on, trod a mount Zion
Talk and groove with the people
Got to tell you say, me no want screw face around y’all!

And though the time might ruff,
Make we cool it now man
And though the livin’ is ruff
Make we chill it now man
