Notes

*Sometimes people sing "mek" (make) and sometimes "let" – it can vary in each rendition and in each verse.
**More common English would be, " It's a long time girl since I've seen you".
*** A Jamaican vulture. John Crow is an important part of Jamaican folklore.

Note: "Boy" is sometimes put in the place of "gal" in this song.
