OUR MESSAGE
Performed by The Love Movement Youth
Composed by Bernadette Scott

Free sex will mash up, mash up your body-dy,
It's a sign of promiscuity
Young boy, young girl we speaking to you-you,
To your own self, please be true.
Hand in hand we'll form an army-my,
Waging war against immorality.

You're telling us to have safe sex, we must condomize
But we are not foolish, we know that is a pack of lies.
We may be young, but we know in our mind and heart
That type of advice is only tearing our lives apart.
The only words we want to hear from you,
Are words of encouragement that are really true.

Just tell us:
The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else, we'll get vex, vex, vex
Teach us to have some dignity, say we must practice chastity.
The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else, we'll get vex, vex, vex,
Tell us we have the ability to live a life of dignity.

Ey boy, me calling, everybody inna dis here country,
We waging war against immorality,
We coming together inna this here island
Because dignity and chastity go hand in hand, come now!

Treat us with respect, tell us have self control,
Don't insult us by believing we want to follow in your mold.
For our bodies and minds, show respect and concern,
We want the correct advice, from your example we will learn.
The only words we want to hear from you,
Are words of encouragement that are really true.

Just tell us:
The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else we'll get vex, vex, vex
Teach us to have some dignity, say we must practice chastity.
The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else, we'll get vex, vex, vex,
Tell us we have the ability, to live a life of dignity.

Ey, come me say, come follow me man, come follow me woman
That type of life leads to destruction, boy!
Show respect, show us some concern
Because from your example, we will learn.

You keep on telling us, don't let drugs mess with your head,
[Don't let it mess with your head boy!]
Don't drink and drive or you will end up dead.
But you encourage us to abuse our bodies,
Is it because you 'fraid pregnancy?
Are you scared we will get AIDS and pass on the HIV disease?
Oh God, we ask you to put a hand,
Change the minds of the leaders in our land
For the youth today we pray, help us in every way.

The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else, we'll get vex, vex, vex
Teach us to have some dignity, say we must practice chastity.
The only safe sex is marital sex,
Tell us any thing else, we'll get vex, vex, vex,
Tell us we have the ability to live a life of dignity.

Come me say, God me love, me no love Satan,
[Free sex will mash up, mash up your body-dy]
[It's a sign of promiscuity]
All de people, allyuh put up allyuh hand
[Young boy, young girl, we speaking to you-you]
God me love, me no love Satan,
[To your own self, please be true]
All gifted people, allyuh put up allyuh hand
[Hand in hand we'll form an army-my]
We urging all the youths in Trinidad and Tobago
[Waging war against immorality.]
Promiscuity is NOT the way to go
[Free sex will mash up, mash up your body-dy]
We say, use yuh head, have some dignity
[It's a sign of promiscuity]
Do the right thing and practice CHASTITY! yeah!
