We came across this Jamaican version of the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet. We’d love to know if anyone from Jamaica is familiar with it? Here are the words in Jamaican Creole (aka Patwa):
Lickle Miss Julie
Kotch pon ar stoolie
An nyam wan ripe Bombay;
Den bredda Anancy
Come frighten de pickney
An tief de ripe mango away.
Also, can anyone provide a translation and/or recording? Please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks in advance!
