The Expanders’ Lyrics: “Uptown Set”

Way cross the border, innocent blood have been shedding

Over cocaine collie bud

Yes cross the border innocent blood have been shedding

Over cocaine collie bud

 

& the uptown people can’t see

so dem never wah hear but we deh ya fe tell them

say the uptown people can’t see

& dem never wha hear, but now dem a fe hear say

 

Heads come off, hands a chop off

Tings weh a gwan fe mek your nice time pop off

Heads come off, hands a chop off

Yes a so the youth dem drop off

 

Inna mass grave, fe dem burial

Mass grave, fe dem funeral

& the uptown set never see

Cross the border, inna pure misery

 

While innocent blood a run uptown high time say dem run around

Poor people still a bawl, blood fe dem all

When they get fe find dem small brother gone

Them a get fe find out oh say dem likkle sister gone lord

Hold on to the youth and nuff money a fe send

Run round your set fe beg which part the money lend, so money send

Yes if you wah fe see the youth again, the money send

When you meet again you find them, find them inna

 

Inna mass grave, fe dem burial

Mass grave, fe dem funeral

& the uptown set never see

Cross the border, inna pure misery

 

Way cross the border, innocent blood have been shedding

Over cocaine collie bud

Yes cross the border innocent blood have been shedding

Over cocaine collie bud
