DOH COMPLAIN, COME PLAIN (BRIAN LONDON)2012

VERSE (1)
Ah sit down after carnival, sharing ideas with Benjai
Yah, yah simme ya ah ah ah
He say boy you need ah soca song, yuh in this kaiso thing for too long
Yah yah simme yah ah ah ah
Ah know yuh like how meh Trini woman did look, look, look, look
And ah know yuh like how meh Trini gal she did cook, cook, cook, cook
So yuh need ah song with some bacchanal
Something to cause ah real scandal
Something to bring you fortune and fame
And let people call out yuh name
Well ah say no Benjai ah car sing ah soca song
While people complaining from country to town
DEY COMPLAIN when food prices high, DEY COMPLAIN when dey cannot buy
DEY COMPLAIN when dey go in the grocery, complain when it take all dey money
So ah car sing ah soca song when people complaining from north to south
But hear somethings ah want meh leaders come plain about

CHORUS
Come plain Minister Sandy
Tell us why the state of emergency
COME PLAIN TELL THE COUNTRY THE TRUTH COME PLAIN
Was there really ah clear and present danger to the people in this country
COME PLAIN TELL THE COUNTRY THE TRUTH COME PLAIN
Yuh say these events would ah make 1990 look like ah Christmas party
Or did you fear the threat by the Trade Unions to shut down the country
Was it crime or the Trade Unions, tell us if you have nothing to hide
And doh lie to the side, lie to the side, lie to the, lie to the, lie to the side
If this was about national security, COME PLAIN AND TELL THE COUNTRY





DOH COMPLAIN; COME PLAIN (BRIAN LONDON)

Ah know yuh like how meh Trini woman did walk, walk, walk, walk
And ah know yuh like how meh Trini gal she did Talk, talk, talk, talk
So sing ah wine, ah chook ah jump and wave
Give them something to misbehave
And if yuh doh like that combination
Jus sing hand na na na na na na na nan
Ah say well Benjai, although yuh plan sounds easy
People still complaining all over the country

So ah car sing ah soca song when people still complaining in my land
But tell meh leaders come plain so we could understand

CHORUS
Come plain Sat Maraj on the double

If you say you have plenty black friends
Why tell the principal block de black children dem
COME PLAIN TELL THE COUNTRY THE TRUTH COME PLAIN
come plain and tell the country so that we could understand
Why it is you using race as ah criteria for education
Is Jack Warner really ah black Hindu, or are you laughing at him on the side
Tell we and doh lie to the side, lie to the side, lie to the, lie to the, lie to the side
If the word African does get you jumpy, COME PLAIN AND TELL THE COUNTRY.

VERSE (3)
He say ah know that kaiso in yuh vein, but is time yuh jump on the soca train
yah, yah, simme yah ah ah ah.
The kaiso bus it moving too slow, but the soca train always on the go
Yah, yah, simme yah ah ah ah
He say yuh doh have to buss yuh brain to find no big, big topic
Yuh doh ha to hot yuh head to get no fancy lyrics
You coiuld sing anything yuh like
And in soca we artiste doh fight
Jus make friends with dem DJ’s
And yuh sure yuh song go get play
Still ah say no Benjai, I cannot go that way
When everywhere people complaining everyday
DEY COMPLAIN still about flooding, DEY COMPLAIN Government eh doing nothing
DEY COMPLAIN farmers hold dey head and bawl, dey complain no compensation at all
So although the soca train always on the go
Ah wha meh leaders come plain so that we would know.

CHORUS
Come plain Mr. Attorney General
Yuh have ah big mouth and yuh like bacchanal
COME PLAIN, TELL THE COUNTRY THE TRUTH, COME PLAIN
Sasha Mohammed all yuh remember, threatening emails to two express editors
COME PLAIN, TELL THE COUNTRY THE TRUTH, COME PLAIN
Come plain and tell we why yuh throw that Sasha Issue on the shelf
But the young girl who make the face book video, yuh threaten she to turn in she self
Come plain so we’d know for sure the difference in laws for the rich and the poor
And doh lie to the side, lie to the side, lie to the, lie to the lie to the side
If yuh serious bout equality COME PLAIN AND TELL THE COUNTRY.





DOH COMPLAIN, COME PLAIN (BRIAN LONDON)

VERSE (4)
Benjai ah want you understand de importance of kaiso to this land
He say yah, yah simme yah ah, ah, ah
When poor people car talk bout their problems, we de kaisonians does sing it for them
Yah, yah simme yah ah, ah, ah
De Calypsonian is considered the voice of the people
We not supposed to jump on no political vehicle
We doh sell we soul
For no rum or roti
No party card
Or party jersey
I’m ah Trini, I’m ah Trini
Country is my responsibility
So when de people complain, I must listen every word
I cannot let their complaints just go unheard
DEY COMPLAIN when dey vote for ah party, DEY COMPLAIN now dey car find de MP
DEY COMPLAIN MP always busy, no time for the constituency
Regardless of who you vote for, you have a right to speak out
So leaders come plain leh we know what you are about

CHORUS
Come plain doh feel we forget
Tell de truth bout de assassination threat
COME PLAIN TELL DE COUNTRY DE TRUTH COME PLAIN
Now that the truth it has been revealed
De police say that de threat is was never real
COME PLAIN TELL DE COUNTRY DE TRUTH COME PLAIN
Was it you or de AG or Gary Griffith who concocted this story
Or was this a distraction for the failed State of Emergency
And when yuh yell we dat you had dengue, yuh making we feel you lied
Is it true? Doh lie to side, lie to the side, lie to the, lie to the, lie to the side
If you know that yuh lied to we, COME PLAIN AND TELL DE COUNTRY.
