But see yah Miss Meera, a wah dat mi smell a yuh kitchen deh bun suh man?
(Mi [?] some fried dumpling mi have in deh pon di fire, Sah.)
Some fried dumpling?
Well, I used to love the fried dumpling a lot too, you know
But since I have the problem with the um…
The self-raising flower, I don’t socialize with it no more
Weh mi call it?

Don’t touch the style, tell yuh friend dem

Mi feel some rice and peas and some broad bean stew
So mi buy one coconut with one bungle a callaloo
(One bungle a callaloo?)
Mm-hmm, one bungle a callaloo
Carry it a mi yard guh give mi woman named Sue
When I see weh she do, mi haffi [?] stew
(Then yuh mean she dweet so bad yuh haffi [?] stew?)
Mm-hmm, [?] stew, mi haffi [?] stew
She bun up di rice and drown di callaloo
(Drown di callaloo?)
Mm-hmm, drown di callaloo
What am I doing with a woman like Sue?
(A woman like who?)
A woman like Sue

(So she gi yuh carrot juice mixed with special brew?)
Uh-huh, gi mi carrot juice mixed with special brew
Den she git up fram morning nuh gi mi no tea
Den she lock up mi house, throw away mi key
Mash up mi settee an mi one tv
(Yuh mean di color tv weh yuh guh trust pon HP?)
Mm-hmm, di color tv weh mi guh tek pon HP
Lawd ‘ave mercy, what is dis pon mi?
I soon tek it to heart an guh drown inna sea

Over two year now mi a send her a college
And di woman cyaan boil likkle cornmeal porridge
Every day she a git up an a mek pure sausage

No touch the style
