A Weh Yu Ben Deh?

A Jamaican folk song questioning the whereabouts of a young woman.

Verse 1
A whe yuh ben deh gal, mek me nuh get no tea?
A whe yuh ben deh gal, mek me nuh get no tea?
Me go a gully, me go a gully;
Me go a gully, mek yuh nuh get no tea.

Verse 2
A whe yuh go fa gal, mek me nuh get no tea?
A whe yuh go fa gal, mek me nuh get no tea?
Me go fi wata, me go fi wata;
Me go fi wata, mek yuh nuh get no tea.

Verse 3
Wha mek yuh tan long gal, wen yuh go a gully?
Wha mek yuh tan long gal, wen yuh go a gully?
Me cyan talk at all, me cyan talk at all;
For whe me go do, i’ sweeter dan de tea.
