"The Wrong Side Of Town" as written by Matthew Mark Mchugh and Clayton Knob Macdonald....


Well I heard you wanna come criticize me
Well I hope you're strong enough to even try
See, hold up, we ain't got nothing to lose
Better think twice before you try come and find me
With a crew as rough as this you must be crazy
Hold up, we ain't playing with you

'Cause when you hear the one drop and you feel that reggae bassline
music set you free
Hold up Mr. DJ, don't stop
All these troubles up in my mind, well they keep chasing me

Dub party down the street, bring the music
Represent where we came up, never lose it
Hold up, we ain't trying to impress you
Blew up this industry, it made me sick
Set a fire under all those sycophantics
We're the new presidents
We take over soon

She said "You don't like hip-hop,
then don't keep wasting my time somewhere else I could be"
God, I'm joking, please stop
Let's take a little more time, maybe see what we'll be

And you want to know the facts, then learn your history
We ain't playing games, quit acting like you're near to me
You better hope we don't run you down
When we see you on the street, have you believing you may be on
the wrong side of town

And you want to know the facts, then learn your history
We ain't playing games, quit acting like you're near to me
You better hope we don't run you down
When we see you on the street, have you believing you may be on
the wrong side of town

    General CommentI think this song is about how great reggae and roots music is and how commercialized other music is getting. And also how one day it will take over the world, whilst still remanining raw."Represent where we came up, never lose it
    Hold up, we ain't trying to impress you
    Blew up this industry, it made me sick"
    Well thats what I get from this song, maybe thats just my own dream!
