VERSE 1
One step at a time one step at a time
Mama told me
One step at a time
but all these peeps dey be jumping the line
Faking the stories
Living a lie
You don’t make the cut
and now you’re stuck
but you still dey form
Why you still dey form?
You wan roll like big boy
but no be play play thing
for you to reach there no be moi moi
You wan wear the shoes but you no pay the dues

CHORUS
You put up a big show
Just to go with the flow
Then you try to bring me low
When we know say nothing below
Tell me what’s the stuff you’re made of
What’s behind the makeup
Difference between you and me
E pass wetin man eye fit see

CHANT
Plastic People (everywhere)
Dem Dey Everywhere 2x

VERSE 2
Nobody wan know
How tins dey go
The only tin dem wan know na when you finally blow
Wanna join the big peeps balling
So you say no time for dulling
For a sense of belonging
You wanna be involved
You wan roll like big boy
But no be play play thing
For you to reach there no be moi moi
You wan wear the shoes but you no pay the dues

CHORUS
You put up a big show
Just to go with the flow
Then you try to bring me low
When we know say nothing below
Tell me what’s the stuff you’re made of
What’s behind the makeup
Difference between you and me
E pass wetin man eye fit see

CHANT
Plastic People (everywhere)
Dem Dey Everywhere
