Queen Majeeda - Modern Day Slavery Lyrics

Modern day, modern day slavery
Modern day, modern day slavery

What a gwaan in a dis ya country?
A nutt'n but chaos in a we society
Yu tek a bus is a Middle Passage journey
Wuk like farmer horse still we can't see nuh money
To me dis look like a modern day slavery

Modern day, modern day slavery
Modern day, modern day slavery

'Ca after yuh rush out a yuh yard so early
Wuk all day plus overtime fi earn more money
By de time yuh reach home yuh so tired
Yu can't even spend likkle time wid yuh family
Not to mention yuh drop asleep while talking to de Almighty
You tell me if dat a nuh modern day slavery?

Food price climb so high we can't reach it
Light bill and water rate a mock we salary
Look how de system enslave we!
A how we a go free out a dis ya modern day slavery?
And de leaders want we follow fi dem strategy
But fi dem hurry come up solution is just another catastrophe
Ah bwoy! Modern day slavery!

Modern day, modern day slavery
Modern, day modern day slavery

Me sey dem swear dem know whey dem a chat bout
But dem nah talk our language when yuh hear from de shout
'Ca as we lift we voice, here comes de perfect plan
Uh hmm! 'Nother one fi antagonize we
Nuh de perfect plan!
'Cause everyday something increase
Fi mek de likkle money in a we pocket decrease
Tax increase, food price increase, bus fare increase,
Utility rate increase
Yet government tackling poverty
Everyday is a different story
So as de new policy dem frustrate we
We wake up to de reality dat we living in a modern day slavery
Fi real dis a modern day slavery
And me nah tek back dat!
