I'M GOIN' BE A CHICKEN-FARMER DOWN IN HAITI (cml, 1979)


-->

Well, I m going' be a chicken farmer down in Haiti
Yes, I m going' be a chicken farmer down in Haiti
I'm going' have a chicken farm
Ain’t gonna cause no harm
I'm going' be a chicken farmer down in Haiti

I feed all the people real good down in Haiti
Yes, I feed all the people real good down in Haiti
In 'da city Port-au-Prince
Chicken-in-a-box for 40¢
I feed all 'da people real. good down in Haiti

I could raise a crop of weed down in Jamaica
Sell my crop, make big money, and forsake ya'
But, I'm going' start a chicken farm
Ain't gonna cause no harm
5 million people eat my chicken down in Haiti

Well de' hurricane blow me away down in Haiti
de' hurricane blow me away down in Haiti
Well de' hurricane done blow me away
But, I come back someday
I'm going' be a chicken farmer down in Haiti

I come back to the U,S,A, in da' winter'
I come back to the U.S,A, in da' winter'
But you know I have my pride
Come, stand by my side
We going' be chicken farmers down in Haiti

for those of us who where there know, and others can only wonder.
