Akwetey Soldier-man!

Akwetey Soldier-man! (Soldier!)
Akwetey marry Ayeley (Soldier!)
Akwetey do am fine (Soldier!)
Akwetey go to war (Soldier!)
Akwetey go keep long (Soldier!)
Ayeley no fit wedge (Soldier!)
Ayeley bor away (Soldier!)
Now Ayeley dey preg (Soldier!)
Akwetey too come home (Soldier!)
Ayeley start dey fear (Soldier!)
Akwetey no for hear (Soldier!)
So she run awaaaaaay! (Heiii!)
(Don’t do away oh!)
If you play away, you will run away!
If you play away, you will run away!

Chanting this vulgar song with glee, the neighbourhood children continued their game of chasing and tormenting the pregnant mad woman everyone had once called Ayeley.
