Life is for man to live (Let man live life! Ba, ba, ba-ba, ba-ah!);
Bread is for man to eat (Let man eat bread! Ba, ba, ba-ba, ba-ah!).
Bread and pyaka:
Cut down pyaka-yism!
Bread and pyaka:
Cut down pyaka-yism!

Everyt'ing ya run dung 'pon;
Everyt'ing ya run dung 'pon;
Everyt'ing ya run dung 'pon;
Everyt'ing ya run dung 'pon.
Come, we go reason now;
Come-a, come-a come-a, we go reason now (we deh go reason now);
Come-a, come-a come-a, we go reason now (we deh go reason now);
Come-a, come-a come-a, we go reason now (we deh go reason now).

Where do you stand for happiness (wa-la, wa-la!)
When you no say you no want it,
While some o' dem (some o' dem, some o' dem) out deh, eh!

I bus dem shut right now
Fi get it.
Bread and pyaka:
Cut down pyaka-yism!
Bread and pyaka:
Cut down pyaka-yism!

Woman feel the pain;
Man suffer, Lord.
Woman feel the pain;
Man suffer, Lord.

Come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
Come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
Come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
Come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
Come-a, come, come-a: we go reason now;
Come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now.
Peeyah, peeyah, pyaka, come!
Peeyah, peeyah, pyaka, come!
Peeyah, peeyah, pyaka, come!
A-come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
A-come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
A-come-a, come-a, come-a: we go reason now;
Oh, come-a, come, come-a: we go reason now;
Bread and pyaka;
Sister pyaka;
Bread and pyaka;
Sister pyaka;
Cut down pyaka-yism!
Cut down pyaka-yism!
Cut down pyaka-ysim!
