Saltfish stew is what I like
So doo-doo, give me day and night
I like you food, so don't find me rude
My favorite, I sure every man in here already eat it

Saltfish
Nothing in the world sweeter than
Saltfish
English, colloquial, Bajans
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

Very well, I like the taste
Though the smell, sometimes out of place
It hard to take, but make no mistake
I want you to know, it's because it extra sweet it smelling so boy it's

Saltfish
Big money does run behind it
Saltfish
Man does lick down man to find it
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

Some like it hot, some like it cold
No matter what, I take it young or old
When it serve with wine, man does stew it fine
Put no pepper, the bone in the centre does be sweet like sugar

Saltfish
Some men does get drunk to taste it
Saltfish
Some does go and hide to face it
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

I would die, a happy man
If I close me eye, with piece in me hand
Bury me, in the cemetery
Any money, put a saltfish picture on me tombstone saying

Saltfish
Sparrow was it's greatest lover
Saltfish
He even adored the odor
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

END.
