Don't Cry, Dry Your Eyes


Yes, Refugee Camp (Yeah, Yeah Refugee Camp uh! Ah!) 
Yo, It never stops, what?! 
We comin' back! (Murder that boy!) 
Ninety seven to two thousand, check it! (Ha! Ha! La!) 

Jericho sound
No Woman No Cry (We 'bout to set it!) 
Yes! Yes! (We 'bout to set it!) 
Yo! We 'bout to set it! (L-Boogie, yes yo, what?!) 
We 'bout to set it! (We 'bout to set it!) 
Yes! We 'bout to set it! (We 'bout to set it!) 

Yo, L won't take the mark though I swim with sharks 
I make the dark see the light 
Board the ark for forty nights 
Times reveal a broken seal, like a (pause) fiend steal 
You for fake, I'm for real, like Jesus Christ's last meal 
You make deals with devils 
The soul descends infinite levels 
Pray to God I see the next, re-scripture in Holy text then 
ask to be forgiven for premarital sex 
In the same breath I speak with death about the times 
and how many joined his army over bullshit rhymes 
You see L change the topic, clear as fiber-optics 
Make talk about your clothes become microscopic decisions 
Young bitches in prison, messing 'round with that life 
Thug, drug dealer wife 
Consequence cut like a knife, then we learned that 
only Jah and God can protect 
You know the story, housing projects is purgatory 
So, teach the youths they got more rights than Miranda 
Tell 'em this whole shit is propaganda! Word! 

Yo, sound system, you know what I'm sayin'?
Jericho Sound, system! 
Turn up your sound, systems! 

Yo, here he comes down the road 
A black Maserati, what up Raheem? (What up? What up? What up?) 
He never fought unless necessary 
You shot at? He shot back 
The whole block felt the bang 
Last man to fight with his fists his name was Jackie Chan 
Not Charles Brownson 
Once you hear the whistle, even Grandmas is stackin' up on old wooden pistols 
Nobody's thinking by the time you're done blinking 
Cold freezer, so your body won't be stinkin' 
Read the will, he left the bills for his daughter Soleil 
Last words written just before he got killed 
Woman cry (Crying) 
Why wasn't I the one? 
Not knowing, the omen was her son Damien! (Demonic voice in background) 
Father forgive 'em, for they know not what they done 
Their meaning of fun is who can draw the quicker gun 
Easy with the fizi 
Second rate the violence 
Those who disagree hear your ashes blow in silence! 

Yo! Turn up your sound system! 
This is the Refugee Camp! 
Jericho Sound System! 
Know what I'm sayin'? 
Te Bass production! 
Refugee Camp collaboration! 
Turn up your sound system! 
Come on! Turn up your boom system! 
This is how we do, turn it up, come on! 

From the heart of Kingston, to the streets of Brooklyn-Marcy 
All the way to the highest peak of any frequency, uh! 
Illegal aliens, them all run invasions 
Broadcasting all over your radio stations (radio station!)
Mathematics, lead me to believe 
there's mysteries in numbers 
Lightning and thunder 
Enough, ribbons in the sky (ribbon in the sky!) 
To make Stevie Wonder 
and man it works, to say I come from down under (come from down under!) 
The wiz kid got no ride 
You frontin' at the bar (you frontin' at the bar!) 
You ain't a star 
You rolled up in somebody else's car (you rolled up in somebody else's car!) 
You know the deal! BMW, Black Man Walking, came home your 
Timberlands was talkin'! (uh huh) 
(Addressing Jeru) Niggas jealous 'cause the truth I said in Zealots 
Well let me tell it, Without Premier you couldn't sell it! 

Murder that boy!

We 'bout to set it, Yes! Yes! 
Jericho Sound! 
L-Boogie you know what I'm sayin? 
We gonna come like Star Wars, you know what I'm saying? 
We 'bout to set it! 
Nineteen ninety seven to the year two thousand and one! 
Ichi-Bang! Even in Japan! 
Yo, L you know the flavor! 
Battle star galactical! 
Who want to battle?! Battle star galactical! 
Come on! You know the flavor! 
Jericho Allstars 
(Something in Creole) 
You know what I'm saying? You know, like the V 
Remember V, the old show we used to watch that? 
Yo, you know what I mean?! We 'bout to set it! 
Know what I'm sayin'! We 'bout to take y'all, you know what I'm sayin'?! 
Remember Mork & Mindy? We used to sit back, Happy Days 
you know what I'm saying? We 'bout to set it, but yo! 
Kids ain't playin' that no more, know what I'm sayin'? 
Niggas packin' pistols, once you hear the whistle, we 'bout to set it! 
You know what I mean? Yo! You know the flavor! You know what I mean?! 
Yo man! You know what I'm saying?! 
Good Times, J.J
