Lyrics
Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
Three stone at de fire, cheese 'pon a de pot (?)
de 'ave all 'ave all, an' de 'ave not 'ave none
We buck upon a hard time, we buck upon a hard time
Do you really wanna know about the half that never been told ?
Do you really wanna know what 'appen to our silver an' gold ?
We buck upon a hard time, we buck upon a hard time

Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
No shoes on deh feet, one pants to deh waist
One shirt's on deh back, it is a disgrace
To see that we buck upon a hard time, we buck upon a hard time
Nowhere to sleep, no food to eat, no pants to wear

Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
Do you really wanna know about hard times ?
Three stone at de fire, cheese 'pon a de pan (?)
de 'ave all 'ave all, an' de 'ave not 'ave none
We buck upon a hard time, we buck upon a hard time
say, when I was a yout' I used to burn collie weed in a rizzla
I use to bun it in a rizzla
Now I am a man I jus' a burn collie weed in a chalwa

When I was was a yout' I use' to live a nine miles

say, when I was a yout' I used to burn collie weed in a rizzla
I use to bun it in a rizzla
Now I am a man I jus' a burn collie weed in a chalwa
I just a rub it in a chalwa

20 $ bill a carry ya Negril Point, 10 $ a carry ya Westmoreland
5 $ bill a carry ya Ocho Rios, 2 $ bill a carry ya (?)
