guyana waterfall

 

I am in love with ah gyal
She is from Rosehall Town, but her mudder
Was the cause for our separation.

I love you Wendy
She love me honestly
But her mudda used to say
I couldn’t get she.

The beautiful girl hear meh
Love me like ah brother
Her mother always abuse me to be her
Lover,
The beautiful girl hear meh
Love me like ah brother
Her mother always abuse me to be her
Lover.
Ah say doh **
You hear wah me mudda say
I will love you my darling
Please carry me away.

I told her if I do this, that I will be wrong
You said come on my darling but to me
You are mine.
I say then my darling, what will yuh
Mudda do,
She say I doh care darling as long as I’m
With you
I start to ** her as she couldn’t stay
It was ah good morning when we gone away.

If my mudda came that day with two policeman
People goin tuh say ah play with Tommy **
Your lips was so tender
Your body was so warm
I swear I love you ** you are my only
One.
The police go cuss, ooo deh **you still cyah remember
I’ll be your husband.
I plan to get married on my
17th birthday
My mudda ** to stay.

I went back to yuh mudda, with tears in
My eye
She ain’t stare at me **
I prayed to Lord Rama
She want Ganesh
I know one day our prayers they will
Be answered.

I was makin love with you
****
Everytime I
When I remember her sweet kiss I **
She is ah beauty, ah gurl name Wendy
I love her like ah ** love**.

I am in love with ah gyal
She is from Rosehall Town, but her mudda
Was the cause for our separation.

I am in love with ah gyal
She is from Rosehall Town, but her mudda
Was the cause for our separation.

Her mudda was de cause for our separation
Her mudda was de cause for our separation
Her mudda was de cause for our separation.
