Please translate a text below in English:

Me holla respect, to all the gun men dem
Gun men alone, keep gun men friend
Fire bun, fi all the informer dem
Informer lone keep informer friend

The song you can find on youtube


Something like : Respect to the gangsters (gunmen) - a gangster is another gangster's friend.

there's a fire burning ("Fire bun") for all the informers : an informer's only friend is him/herself.

    @kharandziuk the word "dem" is just a the way the pronoun them is pronounced in a Jamaican accent - however, when used after a noun it makes it plural (there's >1 gun man, >1 informer). – user16 Apr 21 '16 at 23:23
