Batty Rider Shorts Lyrics by Lila Iké

 

I see them dealin wid the youth dem like an
asset
Selling out wi daughters fi put money inna
dem pocket
Gun the yute dem lock it from before dem in
dem teens
No English, Mathematics, just a ‘matic in
them jeans
Say a that a di regime autocratic with the
scheme
Cycle nah go stop it as dramatic as it seems
Our children they have dreams, In the eyes I
see the gleam
We need fi make them know say them a King
and dem a Queen

When the little girl a walk
Leave her make she pass
Every day you and you dirty big man friend a
talk
‘Bout her batty rider shorts
How unnu wah fi take it off
A lurk inna the dark
A dem yah ting yah get me cross

Mommy where is your daughter
Oh papa where is your son
What’s gonna happen to wi future
When we daughters dem lost
And we son a bus gun
Oh Mommy where is your daughter
Papa where is your son
What’s gonna happen to wi future
When we daughters dem lost and we son a
buss gun

Now if you really check the pree
A from the yard you bend the tree
The youths first teacher is his immediate
family
But Mummy haffi gone a work
Papa inna penitentiary
So what’s it gonna be
Whose gonna boil the baby tea
Well Uncle nah no work
Now him deh a yard a lurk
Somehow him find himself under likkle Nana
skirt
Traumatize her now
Pin her future pon the line
Sharpen the lass dem, him cya too hard to
find

Mommy where is your daughter
Oh papa where is your son
What’s gonna happen to wi future
When we daughters dem lost
And we son a bus gun
Oh Mommy where is your daughter
Papa where is your son
What’s gonna happen to wi future
When we daughters dem lost and we son a
buss gun

Mommy where
Where
Where is your son
Where is your daughter
What’s gonna
What’s gonna happen
