A lil coconut oil in the palm o’ we hand
Lovingly pass on we children heads and faces
Rubbin, smoothing’ in the love
Sweet aroma mixed with we prayers
to seal in their hearts,the true Caribbean roots.
A lil’ bush tea, lemon grass, corn pap
and some cocoa tea
purifying the soul and strengthening
Good natured, healthy people, enjoying the wealth of the land.
Don’t be too big to recall your cradle,
your culture, your home.
Be at ease with yourself S’maatin woman and man.
Don’t ever neglect the fountain of knowledge and truth
That’s the home of our elders.
Come, let’s go hear nancy stories, remedies and advice,
yeah , let’s kiss and see the reflection of our race
in the eyes of one another.
Everybody lovin’ and cherishin’ each other
in this sweet S’maatin land.
