LINSTEAD MARKET

Carry me ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quatty would sell.
Carry me ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quatty would sell.

cho: Oh, Lord! Not a mite, not a bite,
What a Saturday night!
Lord! Not a mite' not a bite,
What a Saturday night!

Everybody come a feel up, feel up,
Not a quatty would sell.
Everybody come a feel up, feel up,
Not a quatty would sell.

Make me call i'louder: ackee! ackee!
Red and pretty dem tan.
Lady, buy your Sunday morning breakfast:
Rice and ackee nyam grad',
 
Other verses:
 
All the pickney they linger linger
For what their mamma no bring
All the pickney they linger linger
For what their mamma no bring   (some variant of this verse seems to occur in
most versions)
 
Do me mommy no beat me kill me
Sake a American rum
Do me mommy no beat me kill me
Sake a American rum
