Have you ever seen a rainbow
Or a garden blooming bright
Heard the shuffle of a thousand feet
And drums from morning 'til night?

Come we go down, come we go down
Come we go down to Kingston market
Come we go down, come we go down
Down to Kingston market

Get your tamarind and sour sop,
Mangoes and casaba,
Bread fruit okra pigeon peas,
Curry goat and guava

Come we go down, come we go down
Come we go down to Kingston market
Come we go down, come we go down
Down to Kingston market

Do you know a brown skin maiden
With sunshine in her eyes?
Heard the swallow and the humming bird
Sing happy as she goes by?

Come we go down, come we go down
Come we go down to Kingston market
Come we go down, come we go down
Down to Kingston market

Have you seen the ghost of Morgan
Or heard a tale you hadn't ought to?
Have you welcomed the coming dawn
With a rum an' cocoanut water

Come we go down, come we go down
Come we go down to Kingston market
Come we go down, come we go down
Down to Kingston market
