Mi carry mi ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell
Mi Carry me ackee go a Linstead Market
Not a quattie worth sell

Lord what night, not a bite
What a Saturday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night

Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell
Everybody come feel up, feel up
Not a quattie worth sell

Lord what night, not a bite
What a Saturday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night


Do mi mommy nuh beat mi kill mi
Sake a Merry-go-round
Do mi mommy don’t beat me kill
Sake a American rum

Lord what night, not a bite
What a Saturday night
Lawd what a night not a bite
What a Saturday night

All di pickney dem a linga linga
Fi weh dem mumma no bring
All di pickney dem a linga linga


Fi weh dem mumma no bring

Lawd, what a night, not a bite
What a Satiday night
Lawd, what a night, not a bite
How di pickney gwine feed?

I love this song from chidhood , we used to sing this melody to a " Church Harvest song' , and I'm trying to get the words , it went something like this : " Harvest Service come bring your offering , anything that you can , antyhing that you have is welcome , guava ,soursop ,pine............Oh ! what a day ...what a day .what a festival day , Oh ! what a day ...what a day ... what a festival day.

If you have the words , I'll greatly appreciate it ,cheers..Robin

We sing this at girl scout camp but we change a lot of the lyrics like it's "beat me momma don't beat me hit me not a quattie would sell" and there's hand motions including snapping and clapping.

My son loves this song. He does the action when we sing it. He is 20 months old.
