Di daakes’ part a di night, a when diay soon light.When thing and times are the hardest, brighter times are near.
Duppy knwo who fi frighten.Powerless person(s) knows who to intimidate.
Ebery day a fishing-day, but no ebery day fe ketch fish.Reward does not always follow labour.
Empty bag cyaa stan’ up.A hungry man cannot work.
Every cave-hole have him own duppyEveryone has his own troubles
Every dog got dem diay, Every puss dem 4 O’ clock.Every one has their time, to shine.
