Story

I'm the type of person who has always had very ambitious goals and dreams, but there is always someone who tries to stifle these ambitions. Yet these same people later look for hand outs and behave as if I didn't have to work hard to get where I am. They only see the rewards and never acknowledge the effort I invested to reach these goals.

Lyrics

 

Sticks and Stones
[A. Lattibeaudiere/C. Harrigan]
chorus
Sticks and Stones could a break our bones
but it would take much more than your words alone
a tru wi pride got nothing to hide
Dem could a try but them still can't break our stride
Sticks and Stones could a break our bones
but it would take much more than your words alone

verse 1
Got nothing want nothing care for nothing
soon as we multiply dem wha fi tek wi little something
The heights of great men rich and kept
was acheived by hard work blood and sweat
You tek pride in a yuself and it a mad dem
got dem, plotting everyday yu nah chat dem watch dem
dem nuh see when you de pan di grind
dem a chill pan di side and dem want break you stride
shake dem off not a care dem no have you nah stop
you momentum a scare dem off

chorus

verse 2
even though you never bling dem can't stop you still
and fi you little pay dem can't tek di pride you feel
so what if you nu live in expensive zip code
tell them se pride a no fi money man alone
nah frown and i keep you smile just di same
when you leave you a walk out di same way you came
head high and dem can't keep you down if them try
and fi dem little obstacle you stop and smile
dem can't stop you because a what you feeling inside
could a thief in a di night but dem can't tek you pride

chorus

verse 3
Sticks and Stones could a break our bones
but it would take much more than your words alone
a tru wi pride got nothing to hide
Dem could a try but them still can't break our stride
Got we abilities and all a wi necessities
might not be privileged but pride is what di feeling is

chorus
