Time for man go home

Time for man go home

Time for man go home

It’s time for man and it’s time for beast

Time for man go home.

Time for man go home

Bucra bring ol iron to break a man down,

Time for man go home

De monkey a bush bawl kwa, kwa, kwa!

Time for man go home.


Time for man go home

Time for man go home

Time for man go home

Time for man go home
