DAMIAN MARLEY lyrics - Living It Up

DAMIAN MARLEY
"Living It Up"

But I done made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now ain't life crazy?

Daddy made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now don't be lazy

Trenchtown have a grandson, growin' up to be somebody
Gong to the Zilla, yo, me flow phenomenally
I am the kind of thing that doesn't happen normally
I'm a one in a zillion
Yo, doggy, if you want some, good life finally
Perhaps change your night time habit
Come out of the old crime lobby
And benefit from your wisdom
Me a' gwaan live it up, life is better than great
Every other day, me mash a dozen dub plate
Put in our hustle, we no sidung and wait
Nuffa pull no muscle, no, it's never too late

Me gwaan celebrate inna rich people place
The likkle Rastaman from Trenchtown fly the gate
With food in our plate and drinks in our crate
We sing till the neighbour dem weep

But I done made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now ain't life crazy?

Daddy made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now don't be lazy

Uptown Jamaica, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Burning Babylon and dem dirty ways
While watching all the rich kids gone astray
Uptown Jamaica, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Big city life, Kingston and Mobay
And if you think me sell out, tell them ain't no way, so
Live it up, Trenchtown to Rema
Riverton, Southside to Jungle
Sherlock Garden to Spangler's
Payneland, three mile to walk to
Portmore, Seaview, Spanish Town
Nine mile, Browns Town to Flankers
Falmouth, west side, Aringil

But I done made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now ain't life crazy?

Daddy made it out, out of the ghetto
Believe in your dreams
Believe you and me, don't let go
We're living it up
We're having a good time, baby
I was born uptown of a ghetto dream
Now don't be lazy
