Paroles:

Making love one day
with a girl they calling Mae Mae
Making love one day
With a girl they calling Mae Mae
I pick up Mae Mae
By the railway
and we take a taxi straight to Claxton Bay
Before we lay down on the carpet
She start ketching fitzwey she bawling

Darling dont bite me
Dont do that honey
I never had a man to ever do that to me
Aye aye aye aye aye doo doo darling
Look me pores raise up
You making me feel so sweet
Stop sparrow stop

This time if you see
How she hook me and i hook she
Like two snakes roll up
She so deceitful she bawling stop
But she like it
I know that
By the way she start to scratch me like a cat
Leggo leggo leggo oh gosh sparrow nooo

Darling dont bite me
Dont do that honey
I never had a man
To ever do that to me
Aye aye aye aye aye doo doo darling
Look me pores raise up
You making me feel so sweet
Stop sparrow stop

when we start to roll
ah get sand all in me nose hole
sand all in me eye and ah getting bite with sand fly
ah kept on scratching and scratching
