WATA KOM A MI 'EYE


This Jamaican folk song pays tribute to the memory of a beautiful young girl, Liza, who has either died or suddenly gone away. The introduction sets the mood with a mournful wail and then builds up to the intense expression of grief as the singers declare that every time they see Liza's picture, it brings tears to their eyes ( wata kom a mi 'eye). A plea for the return of Liza, the chorus is more a cry of frustration than a realistic expectation of her return. The grief then turns to pity for Liza's mother, Sarah.
