From Crop Over 1993 or 1997
by Amanda S
I'm pretty sure this song was either from Crop Over 1993 or 1997 or somewhere in between there. I remember almost all of the lyrics, but have no idea who sings it or what it's called. I loved this song back then, and would love to hear it again. Hopefully you can help. Basically it's about a guy who goes to church instead of jumping up, but finds everyone in church has the Crop Over spirit and the congregation is bashment.
Here are some of the lyrics:
This Kadooment day I say,
I would go to church and pray,
I would not be seen upon di street,
Wukkin up to no soca beat, not me,
With my hymn book and my Bible,
I take a seat in di chapel,
Then somebody turn and say let's sing,
And di choir hit dis hymn,
Hey, they singing
Bend down touch ya toes,
Pooch back and let ya bumsi roll
See all dem sister wining back, what
And di pastor pun attack,
He tek a leg and raise it in di air,
And di choir singing clear
Then there's some more stuff about how he couldn't believe his eyes, and then an old lady 95 and blind holds him from behind. Then someone sings the chorus in an old lady voice. She also says "roll it for Jordan!"
The pastor (another voice) has a part too, where he says "put your hands in the air, in the air just put your hands, every sister every man." This part has a real churchy feel.
Please help me find this song! I hope I've given enough lyrics and information. I didn't want to take up too much space.
