[Intro:]
A dedication to all the refugees worldwide... One time say, say, say

[Verse 1]
I remember when we used to sit in the government yard in Brooklyn
Observing the crookedness as it mingled with the good people we meet
Good friends we had, good friends we've lost along the way
In this great future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say
and to my peeps who passed away

[Hook:]
No woman, no cry, no woman no cry, say say say
Hey little sister don't shed no tears; No woman, no cry
Say say say


[Verse 2]
I remember when we used to rock in a project yard in Jersey
And little Georgie would make the firelight
As stolen cars passed through the night
And then we'd hit the corner store for Roots, paper, and brew
My drink's my only remedy for pain of losing family, but while I'm gone Shorty
Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright

Fugees come to the dance tonight, everything's gonna be alright
O everything's gonna be alright
The gun man's in the house tonight
But everything's gonna be alright

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
I remember when we used to sit in a government yard in Trenchtown
Oba-oserving the hypocrites as they mingled with the good people we meet
Good friends we had; Oh, good friends we've lost along the way hey
In this great future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say


[Hook]

[Outro]
And to my peeps who passed away..
