Things we used to do
Things we used to say
Things we used to do
Things we used to say

Sunday morning I rise bright and early
Getting ready for festival time
Smiley Culture, Tippa Irie they are coming
Philip Levi, phone and say he soon come
We're gonna meet, (meet the crowd)
Hold the mike (crowd gather round)
Put on the show fi please the crowd
Everybody them baul out loud

Festival time is here

Everybody say woo-o-
Everybody say yeah
Wo-yeah-wo-yeah-wo-yeah

Festival time is here

Children they are laughing and playing
While the elders they are talking old times
Miss Lou's working hard in the kitchen
While Mas George has been doing
rough drinking
Me and me brethren just a stand up and watch
A what a joy to see them
Me and me brethren just a stand up and watch
A what a joy to see them

Festival time is here

Come mek we carry go bring come
Food and stall, food and stall
