Jackson Anthem (feat. Miss Joyce)

from by Da Grym Reefer

lyrics

[Chorus: Miss Joyce]

J-A-C-K-S-O-N
My hometown
Call it Jackson
Where we wanna grow
With love and peace
And bring some harmony
To our community

[Repeat x1]

[Verse 1: Da Grym Reefer]

I was born on the eastside of the J-town
I was three
Still remember that ride on the Greyhound
I remember when a brother would beat you straight down
Nowadays they take a gun and lay you face down
Can't let your kids just walk around these streets now
These streets will snatch 'em up
Soon as they put their feet down
You ain't no gangsta, little shorty
Put the heat down
Y'all being punks
Scared to take a beatdown
Get in your books kid
These streets ain't all sweet
Ain't nothing for you in these streets
Ain't no peace in toting heat
These police don't care
If you claim for from the West or East
All they see is that black skin
So to them, we all are beasts

Whether rich or poor
When it rains it pours
We're under the same umbrella
Better less or more

With no cheddar
But more cane than Singapore
So when you flash your cash
The all wanna see you poor in...

[Chorus x2]

[Bridge 1: Miss Joyce]

I know it's not always easy
To smile when the road gets rough
But only we can make a difference
Our children are depending on us

[Verse 2: Miss Joyce]

To do the right thing
There's so much pain
And confusion in our world
And we are the ones who's losing
Our generation of boys in girls
Are growing up to fast (too fast)
And leaving too soon (too soon)
Tell it's now to speak
To remove this cloud of doom

Let's help them to achieve their dreams
So in themselves, they can believe
Let's turn to the positive
So they can begin to lead

[Chorus x2: Miss Joyce and children]

[Bridge 2: Da Grym Reefer and children]

Children: (Stop!)
Da Grym Reefer: Committing the killings and violence
It's senseless
Children:(Stop!)
Da Grym Reefer: The murders of all
The children and women
Children: (Stop!)
Da Grym Reefer: Tell again and make the city feel it
Miss Joyce and children: (Oh Stop!)
Miss Joyce: Say J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Children: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Miss Joyce: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Children: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Miss Joyce: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Children: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Miss Joyce: J-A-C-K-S-O-N
Children: J-A-C-K-S-O-N

[Bridge 1: Miss Joyce]

I know it's not always easy
To smile when the road gets rough
But only we can make a difference
Our children are depending on us

[Chorus: Miss Joyce and children]

J-A-C-K-S-O-N
My hometown
Call it Jackson
Where we wanna grow
With love and peace
And bring some harmony
To our community
