[Chorus]
I just a tell it like it is, yeah
I just a tell it like it is, oh yeah
I've got to be blatant in this time
Just like I know 1 + 1 no make 9 (Repeat)

Now what was I saying about being blatant
You got to be blatant in an argument
You got to make sure your feelings are felt
Perfect example for you from me
Watch lying politicians me seh on me T.V.
Pay big big money for the licence fee
(At the same time them a try fi fool we) (Repeat)

[Chorus]
