Lyrics “A Jamaican in New York”:

Don’t drink coffee, I drink roots my dear

And I love my morning ride

You can see it in my motions when I walk

I’m a Jamaican in New York

See me walking down Church Avenue

With my hat leaned to one side

You can see it when I walk

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

Roughness makes man, as someone said

He is the rude boy of the day

Takes a man to make a stand, sometimes get wild

Be yourself, no matter what they say

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

Niceing up our party, can lead to notoriety

Pretty soon they’ll know you as the Don

Because we live so hearty, Babylon don’t like we

Still we’re gonna party till the sun

And you don’t stop, you proceed

And this is the message and rhyme you need

Shinehead’s gonna take the lead

All yard man, put up your hand

And let the world know that you have ambition

Well a we, well a we a yardy

A weh we de?

We de a New York City

A weh se come yah fa?

No to make some money

We have to do that to feed we family

Chucking badness does not make a man

And we’re not the only ones with guns

Confront your enemies, outsmart them if you can

But if all else fails, you better run

Roughness makes man, as someone said

He is the rude boy of the day

Takes a man to make a stand, sometimes get wild

Be yourself, no matter what they say

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien…

I’m a Jamaican in New York

I’m an alien…

I’m a Jamaican ïn New York
