I HAVE PENNED SOME ORIGINAL SONGS OF A CALYPSO NATURE, HOPING TO PUT THEM ON A CD IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

Thanks for your website that provides so much inspiration to compose in this phenomenal style.
I hope to make a trip to T & T a reality in a few months. I have been in mothballs so to speak the last four years due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
Calypso has bee a music to help sustain my love of life and mental outlook. HAVE TO GET TO THE TROPICS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Music for kids has been my major inspiration (retired educator).
I have about 15 original melodies and sets of song lyrics.
CALYPSO HOLIDAY
Come wid' me to a paradise.
Leave behind snow and freezing ice.
Pack your bags and then jump a jet.
Problems worries you"ll soon forget.
See the green and blue as you land -
rolling waves and the crystal sand
Flowers, shrubs and trees all abound
as you start to look around
Friendly faces and shining smiles welcome you to
this dreamland isle.
Sip the milk from a coconut as the sun melts in da sea.

DA CALYPSO BAND
Can you feel da' riddim'?
Hear it on da bongoes.
Shake it on maracas - on and on it goes.
Dance, sing and party - play da steel drums.
Now you're really cookin'.
Doin' calypso.
