Damian Marley – Living It Up

I am the kind of thing that doesn’t happen normally
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
Sherlock, Garden to Spanglers
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
Perhaps change your night time hobby
And if you think me sell out tell dem ain’t no way
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
While watchin’ all the rich kids goin’ astray
I’m a one in a zillion yo dawg
Every other day mi voice a dozen dubplate
[Chorus]
Nine Mile, Brownstown to Flankers
[Chorus]
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Gong to Zilly, yo me flow phenomenally
If you want some, good life finally
Big city life Kingston and Mobay
And benefit from your wisdom
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
Di likkle rastaman from Trenchtown fly di gate
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
Riverton, Southside to Jungle
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby

We’re living it up – having a good time baby
Burnin’ Babylon and dem dirty ways
Payneland, Three Mile to Backto
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
With food inna plate and drinks inna crate
[Verse 2]
Growin’ up to be somebody

Fi gwaan celebrate inna rich people place
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We sing till da neighbour dem wake
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
Put in our hustle, we nuh sidung and wait
Tough up unnu muscle, no it’s never too late
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?

Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
[Chorus]
[Verse 1]
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go

Falmouth, Westside, Orange Hill
Portmore, Seaview, Spanish Town
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto?
Trenchtown have a grandson
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
Me ah gwaan live it up life is better than great
So, live it up, Trenchtown to Rema
Come out of the old crime lobby
