And I doh want, interference, from you.
My focus is, on mas, so gimme room, to pass.

You come from outta the blue,
And trying to blow meh mind.

You stick on to me like glue - boy whey wrong wid you.

dat was ah scene.
She start to stomp and scream.
She grab ah stick, and she hit him, ah blow.
She finger up, he nose, she try to tear, he clothes.
But he hold on and he won’t leh she go.
She try to plead but in vain.
She say, man, you really insane.
She complain to the band-leader
That too was all in vain.
He come back jamin’ again.
And she say:
start, to boil
She getting real annoyed
Because the band, was approaching, the stand
Boy look meh husband dey
Please leh me go, she say
He’s ah jealous man, he go break yuh hand.
But he hold she tighter instead
He say “I doh care if ah dead”
“Girl just to touch, yuh body”
Feel so heavenly.
You just jam back on me.
