Maths Eh Mathsin' - Song Lyrics

Written by: Marvin Mason
Sung by: Chuck Gordon

It feel like they beatin we
One by one
Two by two
With a two by four
The more we add to the table they keep
takin’ away more and more
99 percent sufferin’
And it eh addin up for sure
Cause the one percent controlling
100 percent of the lives of the poor

It en addin up (x4)
It en addin (x6)
It en addin up

It should take half hour from Arima to town
(It en addin up)
But daily is almost two hours long
(It en addin up)
Every month is another thousand in gas
(It en addin up)
And when salary come yuh doh know
When it pass
Larrd

It en addin up
Five dollars to take a short drop
Ten to town with a million stops
Cyah depend on the bus cause
De system flop
Now yuh spinnin like ah top
And yuh bawlin

De maths eh mathsin (x3)
It eh addin up at all
De maths eh mathsin (x3)
It eh addin up at all

It en addin up (x2)
It en addin (x4)
It en addin up

See the minimum wage salary in T&T
(It en addin up)
Is three thousand thirty-three dollars monthly
(It en addin up)
After yuh pay rent and yuh buy grocery
(It en addin up)
Yuh cyah even pay transportation fee

It en addin up
Yuh need cash so yuh sweep and mop
So yuh doh end up bankrupt
School fees and bills
none ah doh drop
You stay poor rich stay top and

De maths eh mathsin (x3)
It eh addin up at all
De maths eh mathsin (x3)
It eh addin up at all

It en addin up (x2)
It en addin (x4)
It en addin up

The price ah mortgage sky high
Ooooo
Plus 20 percent just to quality
Ooooo
When yuh feel the hardest part
Outta de way
Ooooo
After yuh qualify is 30 years to pay

Larrd
It en addin up
Scream “yes” if banking corrupt
And they robbin people nonstop
Takin’ yuh money from yuh
Drop by drop
Til yuh old with ah prop
And yuh bawlin
