Funfair Love

Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Life is no game so,
Catch them young and ride them to victory.
From sunrise to sunset is the status of the young ones,
Like this young lady who is in love.
Life is no game so,
Play it well when you find your lover;
Like a groove little thing that sounds so sweet.

It is like a funfair love on my lover's lane,
And you've got me and i've got you;
All in this sweet paradise of love together.
Life is no game so,
Catch them young and ride them to victory.
Like a walk through Kingstown to Trench Town in Jamaica,
My love is real for you and yours is sweeter than the candy.

Every move i make is for you,
Every step i take is for you,
From coast to coast is your little thing which sounds so sweet;
Like a funfair love on a lover's lane!
You are so sweet my young lady,
And you have all that it takes on this love;
Like the sweet juice from the apple.
