Why, why, why, why Mother Pepper?
Why, why, why, Why Mother Pepper?

Haul up you mouth and give me pass, Mother Pepper
Haul up you mouth and give me pass Mother Pepper

Mother Pepper
Mother Pepper

Just stand and look at your mouth, it big as the Gulf of Mexico
And if someone say réf, see ya Jah
Ooh, you deh right den
Like when them say "dire under moos-moos tail and him think of cold breeze"

Mother Pepper, Mother Pepper, Mother Pepper

Haul up your mouth and give me pass, Mother Pepper

Mother Pepper
Mother Pepper

Gal, what make you so hot?
And your foot dry like de rat bat
You hot like fire and be breaking a dish
And your neck favor cutlass fish

How could you say it's a sham, and you mouth gettin' caught in a jam

Mother Pepper, Mother Pepper
