Chicken Is Nice

I don't want no wife from Robert's Falls;
Don't want no wife from Robert's Falls.
The only dish ... she can cook is fried fish;
Don't want no wife from Robert's Falls.

Chicken is nice; chicken is nice.
Chicken is nice with palm butter and rice.


...from Cape Palmas;
If I move around, she'll put me in the ground ....

...from Sino (?);
If I go late at night, she'll challenge me to a fight.

...from Monrovia;
When my money gets low, to another she'll go.
