Chorus- No matter no man station

No matter him up so high (so high)

Me no better than no man

No man no better than I (no, no)

No man no better than I

Verse- No matter him got Oprah money

No matter his purse feel light

Though me one of (many, #?) children

Never me hungry one night…

Verse- As kids we never know hungry

Us only been ready to eat

And somebody always see us

No runnin' wild in the street

Repeat Chorus

Verse- Sometimes children confusing

What dem need with what dem want

When dem see kids with more things

No divide what’s real, what’s front

Verse- Too much dem mis-lead children

Giving things but giving no love

No teach dem path to all blessing,

All things from Jah-Jah above

Repeat Chorus

Musical interlude

Bridge- Wealth…give no righteous power

To control the lives of men

Only the generous heart

Living commandment…number ten…

Repeat Chorus 2X and ad lib tag out to musical resolve
