IN DE DED OF NIGHT

In de ded ah de night
Wen de moonlite brite
An de cricket dem chasing way the evening lite,
Ah sit dong in meh hammick,
Tryin tuh rock,
Whispering wid meh bredren,
meh boots on,
meh face restin on cold iron,
ah could smell de powder,
As de cricket dem get louder.

So yuh want tuh fight,?
Yuh say yuh standin for yuh right,

Readin wid ah penlite,
Stayin up all night,
It alright,
Ah quiet whistle fill de air,
meh turn come,
Not ah breeze blowin,
Not ah leaf stirring,
Not even de cricket singing,
ah ben dong low,
In ah stealthy crouch,
ah move tuh meh position,
Tuh wait fuh de situation,
Not knowing wen it going happen,

So yuh want tuh fight,?
Yuh say yuh standin for yuh right,

ah hear ah explosion,
Comin in meh direction,
Ah hit de ground,
Neveh makin ah sound,
Ah crawl fuh cover,
As de lead fly over,
Hitting de trees, yuh could smell de gunpowder,
Voices shoutin, doh move! , doh move,!
Police and soldier getting louder,
In de dark ah de night, like ah mosquito yuh have tuh fight,
Mindful of ah bredren, bein careful not tuh hit him,

So yuh want tuh fight,?
Yuh say yuh standin for yuh right,

Getting quiet, like ah ghost, stealthily leavin meh post,
Stayin de shadow ah de trees, Going toward de enemies ,
He blind as ah bat, he doh know wey yuh at,
He tink ah runnin, he nevah see meh comin,
Ah fire some shot, de barrel get hot,
Still movin , still crawlin, in de shadow like ah ghost
Ah done far from meh post,
Is ah dragnet, me, is de target
Cause ah like ah ghost
Ah spirit in de night,
Like ah mosquito, ah hit an run
Wen yuh slap yuh face,
Ah hit yuh inna next place,

So yuh want tuh fight,?
Yuh say yuh standin for yuh right,
