If you have a sistren an she 
come from country town 
Home training and manners 
She never know 
Grandfather say oh mammy 
say forward gal a mountain side 
Mek she go wash tuh 
Mek she go wash tub 

Don't mek she go to waste 
Don't mek she go to waste 
Don't let she stand and wait oh 
Don't mek she face disgrace 
Don't let she go to waste 
Don't let she go to waste 

If you have a sistren and she 
come from woodland home 
Irie spirit she has when she greets 
you 
It shows grandfather say 
Oh mammy say forward gal a 
mountain side dub her up a ital fall 
Dub her up a ital fall 

Chorus 

In a earth I would like the blessing 
to be on all the chlldren of Israel 
For the fear of Jah is the 
beginning of wisdom 
The sistren qone natty dread 
All a wear tall frok instead 

Chorus 

Cultural vibes are her saying 
A piece of silver don't strike her eye 
She say reality is so nice 
So take care women 
African ruby I mean that truly 
Come mek we forward down 
a river to go beat old clothes
