LYRICS

Bridge:
Doh care how the tail does wag
Man eh buying cat in bag
They could wave it like ah flag
Man eh buying cat in bag
They currency soft and hard
Man eh buying cat in bag
Dem pussy dem send man mad
Man eh buying cat in bag

Verse:
I was working in the country
When ah pick up with Natalie
She had ah dream about me
I am the man she going to marry
Ah call meh partner Bunji
Just to get an advice from he
LISTEN CAREFULLY
THIS IS WHAT BUNGIE SAID TO ME

Bridge:

They currency soft and hard
Man eh buying cat in bag
Them pussy them send man mad
Man eh buying cat in bag

Chorus:
Man go buy ah, Man go buy ah
Man go buy ah, Man go buy ah

Man go buy ah umbrella
From the rain he go shelter
Man go buy ah sailing boat
Doh care if it sink or float
Man go buy ah racing horse
In the saddle he is boss
Man go but ah foreign use
Man go buy ah pair of shoes

Doh care how the tail does wag
Man eh buying cat in bag
They could wave it like ah flag
Man eh buying cat in bag

Verse:
Ah cat never satisfy
So they come out to do or die
If you give them ah oblige
Be careful they go dig out yuh eye
Ah Cinderella story
They go prey on yuh sympathy
LISTEN CAREFULLY
THIS IS WHAT BUNJI SAID TO ME

Bridge:

In the saddle he is boss
Man go but ah foreign use
Man go buy ah pair of shoes

Doh care how the tail does wag
Man eh buying cat in bag
Them pussy them send man mad
Man eh buying cat in bag

Verse:
Attend to the test of time
Before you say pussy is mine
This thing is not divine
Be careful pussy go blow yuh mind
Ah mad man on the bus route
Take ah taste of ah bitter fruit
LISTEN CAREFULLY
THIS IS WHAT BUNGIE SAID TO ME

Bridge:
Doh care how the tail does wag

They currency soft and hard
Man eh buying cat in bag

Man go buy ah pair of shoes

Doh care how the tail does wag
Man eh buying cat in bag
Them pussy them send man mad
Man eh buying cat in bag
