It's coming close to payday I say
Nobody feel no way
Everyman get paid a quota's work this day
Can I plant peas and reap rice
Can I plant cocoa and reap yam
Can I plant turnip and reap tomato
Can I plant breadfruit and reap potato
Can I tell lie and hear truth
Can I live bad and love good
Can I deliver and get down
Can I give a dollar and want a pound
Can I be wrong and get right?
Can I be kicked and don't fight?
Can I drink water and get drunk?
Can I drink whiskey and stay sober?
