Song Lyrics

[Intro]
Oh yeah oh jah alright

Country for sale apply within
Now Cobell tell me what a gwan
I hear them sell off everything
Name your price if the bargain is right
Oh yeah with the right connections
You can have anything that you like
Alright then you can have anything

Everyone a sell out sell out
Oh lord oh yeah look how dem a sell out sell out

Air Jamaica sell off
Airport Donald Sangster sell off
Look deh down a wharf you may think it’s a joke
I see no reason to laugh
They been making promises
But all they doing is talk
I say with the right connections
You can have anything that you like
Alright then you can have anything

Everyone a sell out sell out
Oh lord oh look how them a sell out sell out

Hey turn your backs on your neighbor
In moments of need
Lord you put your personal favor
On your economic greed
Before the needs of the nation
That you pledge to serve and uphold oh

Cause they don’t have to answer
They’re the ones who wrote the laws
Misappropriation of public funds
For your fancy house and cars
The lavish trips you take
While taxpayers backs you break
Oh they price we pay to live
This is economic sacrilege

Country for sale apply within
Now Barney tell me what a gwan
How you make them sell off everything
Name your price if the bargain is right
Oh yeah with the right connections
You can have anything that you like
Oh yeah what did I say
You can have anything

Everyone a sell out sell out
Oh Jah look deh look how them a sell out sell out
Oh Jah wah mek unuh sell out sell out
I would like to know I would like to know
Why, why you sold out our beautiful Jamaica now
Country for sale apply within
Now Cobell tell me what a gwan
How unuh make them sell off everything
