people bustin de behins

begging me fuh please sen money
to buy bread, butta and cheese
some rice, split peas and good flowa
please, please, please,

Meh neece want a new dress
foh a weddin she gat to attend
me nephew want a new pants
to replace de wan he kian mend
Everyboday want someting from meh
because ah live in dis farin country

No use tellin dem

Meh plain mean an greedy
because me living in Kianana
de land of milk a honey
ting kiant be dat bad
dat I kian send dem some money.
