Gunman World lyrics with English Translations




[Intro] Two sides to a coin And one must choose which side they join You know Brotherman Yeah And meanwhile one man's meal Is another man's poison Mankind will do what they must to survive In it Hear me now

[Verse 1] In a gunman world (In a gangster's world) Any night him clock in at work Marrow splatter, the toolbox pull Di magazine inna the two Glock full (The magazine in the two Glocks are filled) And he's watching as the days go by And he's counting as his peers all die Sleeping with the rifle cross his chest (Sleeping with the rifle across his chest) So he never gets a good night's rest And then he's cranky in the morning times And more victims have to lose their lives The community a twist and twirl (The community's twisting and twirling) Wishing that they wasn't in a gunman world In a gunman life (In a gangsta's life) He might not come home from work one night So every minute matter (So every minute matters) Ignores advice From his weeping baby mother and child That he won't win every game he plays So she know he'll meet his end one day Some juvenile will have to earn his stripe And have to take another gunman's life What if a backstabber names his price And how ironic if him dead from knife (And how ironic if he died from a knife) The 'mount of bullet weh him put 'pon boy (The amount of bullet that he fired on boys) Job description: kill and destroy

[Chorus] Now tell me is it worth it all? If one don rise then a next must fall Tell me is it worth it all? Those sleepless nights on patrol roll call Tell me is it worth it all? One child smile while a next one bawl Tell me is it worth it? Is it worth it? Is it worth it all?

[Verse 2] Well in a gunman world Life is so stressful Back to school time come Cause when a gunman work (Because when a gunman works) If he is successful And the job is well done Then there will be an unsolved crime With no one to fill out all blank line John Public haffi hear and deaf (John Public has to hear and be deaf) Informer get a kuff, kaff, kweff (Snitches get shot) Does he get nervous just like you and I? Watching out if the police pass by Cause any day you hear a gunman fail (Because any day you heard that a gunman has failed) Then it's either dead house or jail (Then he has either died or in jail) What will it cost to make a gunman rich? How many lives before a gunman switch? The truth me want the youth dem stop ignore (The truth I want the youths to stop ignore) Seh the majority of gunman poor, oya oh (That the majority of gunmen are poor )

[Chorus] Now tell me is it worth it all? If one don rise then a next must fall Tell me is it worth it all? Those sleepless nights on patrol roll call Tell me is it worth it all? One child smile while a next one bawl Tell me is it worth it? Is it worth it? Is it worth it all?

[Verse 3] And when a gunman makes choice I wonder what goes through a gunman's mind And does a gunman think twice? Before him takes another someone's life? (Before he takes another someone's life?) I wonder what it is a gunman say To the Father when a gunman pray (To the Father when a gunman prays) Does he kiss his kids to bed at night? Making sure the blanket tucked just right? Nothing nuh scary like a gunman voice (Nothing is scary like a gunman's voice) When people beg a gunman think twice (When people are begging a gunman to think twice) And him seh no (And he says no) Wah coulda scary like a gunman voice (What could be as scary like a gunman's voice) When people beg a gunman think twice (When people are begging a gunman to think twice) And him say no (And he says no)

[Chorus] Can you tell me is it worth it all? If one don rise then a next must fall Tell me is it worth it all? Those sleepless nights on patrol roll call Tell me is it worth it all? One child smile while a next one bawl Tell me is it worth it? Is it worth it? Is it worth it all?
