People want to know why Jamaica run from the federation
Well they want to know why Jamaica run away from the federation
Jamaica have a right to speak she mind that is my opinion
And if you believe in democracy you'll agree with me
But if they know they didn't want federation
And they know they don't want to unite as one
Independence was at the door, why didn't they speak before
This is no time to say you ain't federating no more.

When they didn't get the capital site that nearly cause big fight
When Sir Grandley Adams took up his post that even made things worse
They bawling .. we ain't want no Bajan premier Trinidad can't be capital for here
So the grumbling went on and on to a big referendum
But if they know they didn't want federation
And they know they don't want to unite as one and only one
I say to tell the doctor you're not in favor don't behave like a blasted traitor
How the devil you mean you ain't federating no more.

Sorry but no federation again I think it's a big shame
After so much efforts and energy.. goodbye everybody
Right now it's only a memory we failed miserably
Some may say we shouldn't have parted
But it's Jamaica who had started
If they know they didn't want federation
And they know they don't want to unite as one
Just tell the doctor you're not in favor don't behave like a blasted traitor
This is no time to say you ain't federating no more.

Federation boil down to simply this it's dog eat dog and survival of the fittest
Everybody fighting for independence singularly Trinidad for instance
We gone get it too so don't bother but I find we should all be together
Not separated as we are because of Jamaica
If they know they didn't want federation
And they know they don't want to unite as one
Tell the doctor ... tell the doctor you're not in favor don't behave like a blasted traitor
How the devil you mean you ain't federating no more.........Outside Man!!
