Lyrics:
We heard lyrics to the verse of this tune sung by Milton Batiste of Harold Dejan’s Olympia Brass Band:
Hey, what’s the matter now,
Hey, what’s the matter now,
Hey, what’s the matter now,
Little girl go home and tell your mam.
Hey, what’s the matter now,
Hey what’s the matter now,
Little girl go home ans tell your mam,
that the man will poison you.
