True Antiguan

Written by Fd/Performed by Short Shirt

Oscar Mason flag me down to tell me
Shorty boy you actin’ strange
You used to be a diehard opposition
But all of a sudden you change
Did government give you a deed
For the piece a land
Out by Halcyon
Tell me how much Lester pay
Man to man
I demand an explanation

chorus 1
Cause A born in this country
I love this country
Don’t you think I should care
I’ll fight for my country
Die for my country
Me ‘navel string’ bury here
When I see young people
By the roadside idling
Wouldn’t knock a stroke it hurts me
‘Cause I know that if we work earnestly
What a glorious land this would be
Oscar believe me

verse 2
Talk about improvement opportunity
Oscar we have it here
If we choose to misuse and abuse it
Soon it will all disappear
I must motivate my people
I must educate my people
And my job is never easy
I am a proud citizen
A born and bred Antiguan
Only doin’ my duty

chorus 2
‘Cause A born in this country
I love this country
Don’t you think I should care
I’ll fight for my country
Die for my country
Me ‘navel string’ bury here
Too many delinquent children
Walking on their brain
Stoned out on dope it hurts me
If they shoulder some responsibility
What a glorious land this would be
Oscar believe me

verse 3
We are all one people
Riding in the same donkey cart
But if we pullin’ and tuggin’
Pullin’ and tuggin’ every which way
We will rip Antigua apart
I must awake my people
Got to activate my people
Take this tip from me
As long as strength in my body
They don’t have to pay me
I will sing as I see

chorus 3
‘Cause A born in this country
I love this country
I must do my share
I’ll fight for my country
Die for my country
A wouldn’t run from here
When I see lazy people
On they backside complaining
Life has no hope it hurts me
If we utilize every opportunity
What a glorious land this would be
Oscar believe me
