"Breadfruits roasting an on open fire,mongrels nipping at your toes, dancehall songs being sung by a choir an we dress up in we bashment clothes.
Everybody knows when gungo cook an sorrel l flow, yu dun know seh season brite, gal an bwoy wid dem starlight a glowdem nah go waan fe sleep tonite. Dem know sey joyride deh pon the way.
With music, rockin' rockin thru de day an all the chicken dem a try fi spy fi see is which one a dem gwine to fry.
