    Is a wise ole shephad
    I'm suvvie tru flood
    Tru drout
    Tru blizad

    Some people seh
    I'm a two hundred an odd years ole
    Addah people seh
    Notn noh goh soh
    Dat I'm a jus seventy odd years ole
    Some seh I'm is a ghost
    Some seh I'm is a sage
    But nohbady noh really know
    I'm riteful age are whey I'm come fram

    Fateful is I'm flock
    From di ewe to di ram to di Iam
    Right tru tick an tin
    Dem mostly cling to I'm
    Awftah all
    Noh I'm guide an sheltah an protect dem ?
    ( sometime a dem haffi protect I'm dow
    Like ow a dem haffi protect I'm now )
    Look ow I'm stretch out pan I'm back
    Pan di brown grass
    Di white hair pan I'm branze he'd
    Like a kushan gense di weepin willow tree
    Lookin bedraggled an tin
    Like seh life done wid I'm
    Like seh I'm is totally at peace widin
    Noh baddah goh feel sarry fi I'm
    Are goh tink poor ting
    Nat a ting noh dhu I'm
    All dat really happn
    Is dat due to di heat a di time
    Like lickle bwoy blue I'm drap asleep
    An a dream bout lickle bow peep
    An wan an two a I'm flock dem drif a way
    While di addah ism dem

    Jus a crawl an a creep
    An noh baddah ask if dem naw mek fun
    Fi confuse an cansume all di stray dem
    But everything is jus fi a time
    Soon di flack wi tek a stack an surmise

    Wen dem site ow di pack jus a staak dem
    Dem wi come back togeddah wance agen
    An shephad di sage to a highah graun
    Whichpawt di graas is greenah an sweetah
