Di sun rise in the east,
And set west, too quick
As I wait fi di one
Who will ache mi body,
An raise me mind;
Dry mi out like clothes pon line.

Mi heart set pon stick,
Waiting pon di right tick;
My eyes see yuh,
My neck it crick.
Goose bumps rise up,
Mi blood pressure kick;
As pleasure sprint to future,
Mi waist rock and twist.

Steady pon di treble,
Mi heart set pon stick;
Mi eyes rise and swivel,
Mi blush and flick.
One hand to mi hair,
Draw brakes and switch.

Too soon, argues reason
Step back and switch;
Mi blood pressure steady,
Den yuh look,
One, two,
It kick;

Up ten notches fi dis man,
Mi waist rock and twist;
Di sight a him,
Ache mi body,
And rock mi mind;
Mi step back,
Fi dry out like clothes pon line.

Levels rise,
Hotflash like menopause to rahtid,
Dis bredren body leave mi body,
Haunted.
