Answer by Wellesley

Hi there,

Thanks for asking! This one is new to me, I must admit, but I've reached out to the National Library of Jamaica for assistance. They didn't find the lyrics but they found an audio clip and sent it to me that was apparently was found online.

The link to the clip below is on her website at:
