Mama Jay

I have been away too long
Trodding on far land
With Uncle Sam
Neva forget yuh love reggae songs
Di green, yellow and black frock
Yuh worn from day I born

Ground provisions yuh plant
Coco, plantain, banana
Yuh cook with ackee and salt
Call it national dish
Served with Julie mango, June plum , Passion fruit
That's the best Ital juice

Bredda Anancy stories shared
Preserve your past
Help I seek di righteous path
No matter di years of slavery
They put yuh through
I know better to be, pure in heart, strong and true

Mama Jay
I have been away too long
Can't wait to be where I belong
Memories of you is slowly fading
Time to create new one's
