Whatcha Gonna Do

Album: Legalize It

Mama! Mama! Them hold papa!
Said them charge him fe smoke ganja.
If me never jump two fence them hold me too.
So tell me mama whatcha gonna do?

Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do?
Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh mama! Whatcha gon' do?

Next week, next week, case to case.
Him have a dread judge to face.
Him a fe idle live in space
and make the doctor them work 'pon him case.

Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh mama! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh mama! Whatcha gon' do?

Next door neighbor, them hold your son
said them find him with one gun.
And it's no need him start to mention
him going to get indefinite detention.

Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh lady! Whatcha gon' do?
Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do?
He's your one son, lady!

The cops them say him no nobody
so him ha fe remain in custody.
Him see the Babylon, him stand up and screw
say him never know it was a curfew.

Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do?
He's your one son, lady!
Whatcha gonna do?
Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do now?
Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do?
No bail, lady! Whatcha gonna do?
He's your one son, lady!
Whatcha gonna do?
Oh lady! Whatcha gonna do now?
Whatcha gonna do now?
Indefinite detention.
Whatcha gonna do now?
