“It Inna Mi Blood”

Mi nuh noe wah ah di problem?

Afftah all, dis yah dayum talkin’,

Bout seh, mi ah Yankee.

Tell mi now. A wah all dis yah noise fah?



 Yeh, a Foreign mi bawn,

But mi parents dem?

Dem ah natural bawn Yardie!

Most ah my family memba dem? A strictly Yard dem bawn & grow.


Suh a wah dat mek mi? A Jamerican???

Nuh true America mi bawn,

Nuh watch nuh face!

Jamaica runs threw my veins,


Mommy did ah look opportunity,

And Daddy did ah tek disadvantage!

Ah suh it guh,

Ah nuh my fault dat!


JAMAICA? Chuh-h-h!

No question nuh di deh!


It inna mi blood sah!



Yah Mon…Yuh dun noe!

Nobody caayn deny mi.

Cause, I and I FEEL di riddim ah mi people.

Mi set inna di position, widdout inquisition,


Dat a deh suh, fimmi people come fram.

A deh suh, my Ancestors call out to me &

Mek mi noe seh,

Ah dem a help fi carry mi true. A pon fiddem back mi tan.






It Inna Mi Blood!
