I said we friendship come first, the band did come second
So listen crowd of people and throw up unnu hands

So give us what we want and mek we gwan
I said yes crowd of people we come back again
I know most of dem from age eleven
We travel the whole world, think it could never end
'cause reggae what we love and that's what we defend

So give us what we want and mek we gwan.
So let me get back to the subject of me friends
And that there love that could a never end.
Me love me Mickey V. Him in a category.
Me love me Astro because him deh pon de go
Me love me Ali C. with his golden voice
Me love me Brian T. Pon the saxophone
Them bad pon their own or in a section of three
Jimmy a the drummer me a the base

So give us what we want and mek we gwan.
