This type of song is called a "conversation duet" that's usually sung between a man and a woman.

Kurleen Gorge Laplanche wrote, "I am a St. Lucian, and I grew up singing/hearing the song 'Fenm ki Dou'. The word 'Kwèkolé' is actually two words. 'Kwèm' and 'kolé'. 'Kwèm' is porridge and 'kolé' means sticky or glue. So, 'Kwèm kolé' is sticky porridge. 'Stèpin wòz' does mean pink female undies. 'Stèpin' is the word my grandmother would use for underwear. I just discovered your website and was very happy to see a song from my island on there."
