These are the lyrics as performed by Dave

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

I don't want no wife from Cape Palmas
Don't want no wife from Cape Palmas
If I move around, she'll put me in the ground
I don't want no wife from Cape Palmas

Chicken in nice
Chicken is nice
Chicken is nice with palm butter and rice

I don't want no wife from Sinoe
Don't want no wife from Sinoe
If I go out at night, She'll challenge me to a fight
Don't want no wife from Sinoe

Chicken is nice
Chcken is nice
Chicken is nice with palm butter and rice

I don't know wife from Monrovia
Don't want no wife from Monrovia
When my money gets low, to another she'll go
Don't want no wife from Monrovia

Chicken is nice
Chicken is nice
Chicken is nice with palm butter and rice
