C                        F
      Sounds of laughter everywhere
        G                   C
And the dancing girls swing to and fro
C                           F
     I must declare that my heart is there
            G                  C
Though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico

     Down at the market you can hear
       G                      C
Ladies cry out while on their heads they bear
                   F
Ackee, rice, salt, fish are nice
