Mi tink mi did let yuh go,
Mi day dreams of yuh,
Still a rub mi dung from sun up to sun down;
Did I let go of di hurt an pain?
Dem rock mi rass cranium like a nine night drum,
Mi own funeral song;

Mi couldn’t stop tink bout yuh,
Now mi fine respite with a new lover each night.
Mi tink mi did move on,
Sang mi damn funeral song;
Or mi still dressed in black, a filthy ole frock,
Hiding mi tears;

Mi waan knuh if me accept seh
Yuh nuh fi mi and mi un fi yuh?
Fi mi own sake mi pray seh mi move on
To wanting anodda lover,
To luv mi an worship di ground wah me float pon,
A good an faithful man;

Mi muss let yuh go,
Or lose all a mi hopes.
