Teach The Youths Lyrics

Teach The Youths - Barrington Levy

 

Went away to a far far land spent some time in new york

Most of my time inna england no welcome back to my bornland

 

Come from england to make some vibes just to keep my fans alive

 

But the vibes they're teaching me that don't right in my book

 

But the vibes they're teaching me that don't right in my book like

No put de day nah put dem no weh no put de day lawd

I went dem a stay

 

Not put de just keep dem to de ground

 

Horse tonic a mek de girls dem panick

 

Teach de youths dem how to live teach de youths dem how to survive

Hold your corner and save your life and thats no jive

 

Some of de youths dem make a living by selling some stones

While some make a living wiping down cars

 

Can't you see the times your living in the people are suffering

 

Don't teach me nothing just teach me something

 

Don't teach me nothing just teach me something

 

Hold your corner save your life and thats no jive

 

My heart my poor my heart cries to see the youth

 

No put de day nah put dem no weh no put de day lawd

I went dem a stay

 

No put de jus keep dem to de ground

 

Horse tonic a mek de girls dem panick

 

Teach de youths dem how to live teach de youths dem how to survive

Hold your corner and save your life and thats no jive

 

Went away to a far far land spent some time in new york

 

Most of my time inna england no welcome back to my bornland

 

Come from england to make some vibes just to keep my fans alive

 

Come from england to make some vibes just to keep my fans alive

 

But the vibes they're teaching me that don't right in my book no

 

 

But the vibes they're teaching me that don't right in my book
