Damian Marley – Living It Up


Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
Nine Mile, Brownstown to Flankers
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
Growin’ up to be somebody
[Chorus]
We’re living it up – having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
Burnin’ Babylon and dem dirty ways
While watchin’ all the rich kids goin’ astray
And benefit from your wisdom
Payneland, Three Mile to Backto
And if you think me sell out tell dem ain’t no way
Come out of the old crime lobby
Put in our hustle, we nuh sidung and wait
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto?
Perhaps change your night time hobby
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Every other day mi voice a dozen dubplate
[Chorus]
[Verse 2]

Tough up unnu muscle, no it’s never too late
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy

Trenchtown have a grandson
Gong to Zilly, yo me flow phenomenally
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
Big city life Kingston and Mobay
We sing till da neighbour dem wake
Falmouth, Westside, Orange Hill
Me ah gwaan live it up life is better than great
Portmore, Seaview, Spanish Town
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
I am the kind of thing that doesn’t happen normally
Sherlock, Garden to Spanglers
Riverton, Southside to Jungle
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now ain’t life crazy?
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
With food inna plate and drinks inna crate
I was born uptown of the ghetto dream, now don’t be lazy
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
On the playground is where I spend most of my days
So, live it up, Trenchtown to Rema
I’m a one in a zillion yo dawg
[Verse 1]
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go

Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
Fi gwaan celebrate inna rich people place
[Chorus]
Uptown Jamaica born an’ raised
Believe in your dreams, believe you me, don’t let go
If you want some, good life finally
Di likkle rastaman from Trenchtown fly di gate
But daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
Daddy made it out – out of the ghetto
We’re living it up -we’re having a good time baby
