He's no model citizen
Everyone's afraid of him
Getting worse day by day
People stand around, not a word to say

Johnny, it's too bad you have a pistol at your side
Lootin' and a-shootin' and stealin' a ride
A concrete jungle that you're caged in
The pressure gonna drop on you, my friend

You're no model citizen
You're no model citizen

He's no model citizen
Everyone's afraid of him
Getting worse day by day
People stand around, not a word to say

The youth are getting restless, there's a struggle about
Stop your messin' 'round, straighten right out
What's gone wrong with this current generation
Why don't we stop livin' in total desperation

You're no model citizen
You're no model...

Simmer down
Simmer down

Comin' in all the dancehalls committin' violence
Five on one just for fun, doesn't it make no sense
Saw in the news, the stolen shoes no reason to end a life
Better watch out ya might get shot no longer using knives
Whatcha gonna do when your time is through and it's your turn to pay
What comes around and goes around each and every day
Your fussin' and fightin' keeps ignitin' fire beyond control
Burnin' brightly, media nightly supports your chosen role
Let's stop, wait a minute and hold on
Where has all your toleration gone gone gone didly dong
Day has changed as far as it can go
Busted up on the scene at the age of fourteen, I say many a moon ago
Here me now, I said the Rude Boy Tal and this is Cool Causian Don
When we handle the mike it's a strictly wisdom
And this the Cool Causian Don, I said the Rude Boy Tal
I said playing it for all the fellas and all the baby gals

No fuss and fight, no hassle no gripe, let's all unite for human rights
The ink is black and the paper is white together we learn to read and write
When me handle the mike the crowd ignite like JJ Walker say me
Say me true dynamite me no give no damn about your skin color
Whether your black or your white or an mixture
This the Casian Don in combination with the Pietaster
Me da-da-dash way all badness with 24 ka-ka-karat niceness
Say boom skidip stipidity bong stang one of the youth man
And dem no comprehend yes boom skidip stibity bong stang...

He's no model citizen
Everyone's afraid of him
Getting worse day by day
People stand around, not a word to say

Get yourself a drink, it's time to get up
Simmer down you hooligans it's gettin' too hot
Better watch out or your future's in jail
Can't go on forever actin' hard as nails

You're no model citizen
You're no model citizen

Comin' in all the dancehalls committin' violence
Five on one just for fun, doesn't it make no sense
Saw in the news, stolen shoes no reason to end a life
Better watch out ya might get shot no longer using knives
Whatcha gonna do when your time is through and it's your turn to pay
What comes around and goes around each and every day
Your fussin' and fightin' keeps ignitin' fire beyond control
Burning brightly media nightly supports your chosen role...
