Mi carry mi ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell
Mi Carry me ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell

Lord what night, not a bite
What a Saturday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night

Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell
Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell

Do mi mommy nuh beat mi kill mi
Sake a Merry-go-round
Do mi mommy don’t beat me kill
Sake a American rum

All di pickney dem a linga linga
Fi weh dem mumma no bring
All di pickney dem a linga linga
Fi weh dem mumma no bring

Lawd, what a night, not a bite
What a Satiday night
Lawd, what a night, not a bite
How di pickney gwine feed?
