Pressure
Pato Banton + Tippa Irie
Album: Visions Of The World

Now this one is specially dedicated
to all the people living in poverty.
And directed at all those people
in high society.
'Cause when it comes to feeling pressure.
None of them don't feel it like we.

Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.
Dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.

Well now is I man Pato Banton.
And I man Daddy Tippa.
We a chat pon microphone.
Well as two blood brother.
'Cause we born in a the ghetto.
As two sufferer.
With we mother and we father.
We sister and brother.
Well I live in Birmingham.
And I'm a Londoner.
But is how we get together.
Some of them a wonder.
By coach by train.
Or even by car.
Rich man a catch plane.
And them taking helicopter.
Ca'...

Dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.
Dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.

Well this lyric ain't no joke.
And it's not funny.
'Cause what we're gonna chat.
Well is reality.
'Cause a whole heap of people.
Dem inna poverty.
And a whole lot of families.
Dem inna agony.
Inna Ethiopia.
Well dem a dead fe hungry.
And inna South Africa.
Dem a fight to be free!
Free like the birds.
Up inna the tree.
And free like the fishes.
Down inna the sea.
We are British citizens.
But this is not our country.
'Cause we're a part of the ethnic minority.
Now we a go send this lyric to the Iron Lady.
And the whole of the conservative party.
Ca'...

Dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.
Dem no know 'bout pressure.
In high society.
Now dem no know 'bout pressure.
Dem no feel it like we.

About 4 million unemployed in our country.
Man a get redundant through machinery.
Now living in the ghettos it don't easy.
We have to try a little hustling fi make some money.
That's why we don't blame a man fe sell sensi.
And we can see why certain man dem a commit robbery.
'Ca' the dole and [social] security just don't ready.
That's why me feel it fi the old,
and me feel it fi the young.
And me feel it fi each and every family.
Because dem nar spend no money on the community.
Dem just a spend dem money pon nuclear energy.
From my point of view they must be getting ready.
Getting ready fi what?
World War III.
The rich will be safe and also Maggie.
The queen and the whole of de royal family.
Dem a go catch a space ship and leave de country.
Dem a go live pon the moon and have space babies.
But what about Pato and Tippa Irie.
And the other 60 million people in the country.
Dem no know 'bout pressure!
