Does anyone know what the heck the Desmond Dekker song "It Mek" is about? You can listen to it here (and you should do so, because it's an amazing song), and the lyrics are here (accurate but phonetically transcribed) Is the person who's shamming being hurt (the "you") also the "she" who's "crying out fe ice water"? I mean, I assume so. So some chick is pretending to get hurt falling off a wall, and cries out for ice water, but then when he does get to her she's "cold." Insufficiently grateful? But...what...and the goat...? Help me out here, people.
