David Rudder - Calypso Music Lyrics




Can you hear a distant drum
Bouncing on the laughter of a melody ( yea, yea)
And does the rhythm tell you, come, come, come, come
Does your spirit do a dance to this symphony
Does it tell you that your heart is afire
And does it tell you that your pain is a liar
Does it wash away all your unlovely
Well are you ready for a brand new discovery

Calypso, calypso (oh oh)
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso (oh oh)
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

Ah say that I am the seed of the Growling Tiger now
I got to sing
Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

(David Rudder - Calypso Music Lyrics)

It is a living vibration
Rooted deep within my Caribbean belly
Lyrics to make a politician grin
Or turn a woman's body into jelly
It is a sweet soca music, calypso
You could ah never refuse it, calypso
It make you shake like a Shango now, calypso
Why it is you shaking you don't know
That's calypso.

Calypso, calypso ho ho
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso ho ho
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

Ah say that I am de seed, I'm de seed of Atilla now
I got to sing
Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

I can still hear Lion roar
Through Greenwich village
While Executor kills them dead at the Rainbow Blue
Lord Invader conquers Berlin but their hearts this time,
And Lord Kitchener make Ole London feel so new
Beginner and Terror too
Fitzroy Coleman fingers dancing on the fret
And when you think that he through
He aint start nothing yet

Carnegie hall graced by the presence of Sparrow
And when Slinger done with they tail
Hear them shouting don't go
Sparrow don't go

(David Rudder - Calypso Music Lyrics)

Calypso, calypso o o
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso o o
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Ah say that I am de seed, I'm de seed of de Spoiler now

Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

I want to rise, I want to rise

From the time the first bamboo cut
And we drag it down from up in the St. Anns hill
From the day the first chantwell lead the band
The real jamming start that day
And we jamming still, still
Creating rhythm dat could be deadly like Headley
Only this time
The spirit and de melody was sending they soul to the boundary
From the bongo drum to de roll of de tassa
Ever since Europe come and she make massa bassa
We jamming it!

Calypso, calypso o o
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso o o
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

We gonna sing it in a London
we gonna sing it in America yea
We gonna sing it in Africa, calypso
We gonna sing it in Europe, now calypso yea
We gonna sing it up America yea calypso now now

We gonna sing de calypso

David has done this song so well that it has continued to be a favourite of mine ever since hearing it in Barbados as a youngster . The lyrics I would consider very clean which matters to me as a christian, its all about the art .

This song truly defines the glory of Trinidad and Tobago's culture, it's people and it's history. to me, this is the best song - lyrically and melody wise - that I ever come to know and love. David Rudder will always remain my favourite TnT artist.
