Harry Belafonte

Kingston market

Have you ever seen a rainbow,
rr 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 to Kingston market
|: 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.


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?


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 and cocoanut water?
