We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we may gather them.
We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we have got them.



We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we pluck the ears.
We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we rub out the seeds.



We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we place the seeds in our skirts.
We gather and gather the plantains;
Now we tuck out skirts under our girdles.
