NOTES [68 words]: Elder-Tobago: "... said to be a 'drinking song' the Blacks in the village learned from the planters during drinking bouts at the 'great house'.... The two friends calling upon their sleepy drinking partner do not call out in the night[. T]hey knock so as not to disturb the neighbors. On Saturday nights, on the plantations, in the olden days, the planters went from estate to estate drinking and feasting." - BS
