OUR SLANGS

BREAD CAART, RICE CAART, BUBBLE GUM CAART
WORDS OF CONFUSION, WRONG INTERPRETATION
COMMUNICATION FROM FOUNDATION, FROM WE AFRICAN LAND
COMBINATION OF MORE THAN ONE NATION
CREATED THE CONNECTION FOR OUR SOCIALIZATION 
AND IT WRONG, BUT IS YOUR INTREPRETATION 

BUBBLEGUM CAART BREAD CAART, RICE CAART
INDEPENDENCE, STATES THE POWER TO CONTROL ITS OWN DOMESTIC AND 
EXTERNAL AFFIRES.
AND SOME OF US STILL FACING “PARPARISATION”
BUT WHAT ABOUT WE SLANGS?
WELL I DON’T NEED ANY INDEPENDENT FOR THIS ONE.

RICE CAART, BUBBLE GUM CAART BREAD CAART
NEAR AND FAR, FOREIGNERS AND LOCAL,
GLEANERS, OBSERVERS AND STARS
WHEN THE WORDS FLOW THE MIND GLOWS, FROM FLAT TONGUES, ROUND 
TONGUES, LONG TONGUES, SHORT TONGUES, EVEN NARROW TONGUES
FROM CHINESE, JAPANESE, ASIANS, AMERICANS, ITALIANS, ANY NATION
IT IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM A JAMAICAN 
THIS IS OUR SLANG!
WE HAVE TO SMILE EVERY TIME THEY TRY TO PRONOUNCE THE SLANG 
NUH, TRUE MAN AND WOMAN?

BREAD CAART, RICE CAART, BUBBLE GUM CAART
BECAREFUL WITH THE PRONUNCIATION CHART 
WRONG INTERPRETATION CAUSES CONFUSION 
THE PASTE THE TONE THE ARTICULATION
AND THE BREATHING GIVES A DIFFERENT MEANING 
STICK TO THE ROOTS, WORDS OF COMMUNICATION
CREATING THE CONNECTION FOR OUR SOCIALIZATION
AND IT WRONG, BUT IS YOUR WRONG INTERPRETATION 
 INTERPRETATION CAUSING THE CONFUSION
