Salaam Remi – One Time Lyrics (feat. Akon)

I was walkin’ on the 145 Saw a boy with a spliff and a jinky red eye Little time lost now all he waan fi do is rise
Mi a think an’ pick a script up
New Jersey drive
Real gangsta youth love to steal people ride In da belly of the beast is what you do to survive
Him a bad man, slash gun man
Stash pocket fi gon’ hide dem contraband
Trap, house, and outta Babylon Usual suspect ’cause him a rastaman
You think it’s funny but don’t you dare laugh
You think you know di story you don’t even know di half
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one, one time
One time, one time
You get away with things but only one, one time
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one more time
One time, one time
Mi swear mi nuh gon’ tell ya this one more time Father gon’, momma work hard
Three jobs she have left him alone has she have Teach him good tings ’til him turn out bad See all di youth dey move like dem nuh ‘fraid of God
Nuh argue with people a bram-bram-bram
A pagon picture pon him Instagram
No matter what ya say it’s like him nuh understand An’ want to live more life in a police station
And everyday and every night Him in a situation might take his life He really don’t care about wrong or right Really think him invincible and that’s not right, but
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one, one time
One time, one time
You get away with things but only one, one time
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one more time
One time, one time
Mi swear mi nuh gon’ tell ya this one more time
From the boy in the diapers You swear you wouldn’t end up in a riot ’cause
They said a you too hyper Ya reason with them, ‘came a fighter
Build up nuff anger
Them wanna swear, seh a him killmonger
No school, no guidance, no rule 16, walkin’ round with a tool Hothead that ya cyaan keep cool
Seh sumtin that them nuh like, dem turn fool Granny share a prayer and pray for him Fi Father
God fi make another way for him While Babylon await and await for him
A prison cell that them gonna prepare for
‘Cause it’s nuh funny so don’t you dare laugh You think you know di story you don’t even know di half, so
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one, one time
One time, one time
You get away with things but only one, one time
One time, one time
Mi only are gon’ tell ya this one more time One time, one time
Mi swear mi nuh gon’ tell ya this one more time
