Hi Mama Lisa,
I remember a song from my childhood in Trinidad that translated in English to “Just give me a kiss, just a kiss do do”. Do you have the complete lyrics in English and French Creole to this song?
The term “do do” in Trinidad means darling. I only recall some of the patois phonetically so it may not make any sense, “Bwen whey a ti bo, a ti bo do do y bwen bwen ba yer do do” and I am not sure whether it is a child’s or a folk song. I did meet someone from Mauritius who knew the exact same song. Thanks for all your help.
If anyone can help, please comment below or email me. Thanks in advance!
