Mighty Sparrow Lyrics - Jean and Dinah Calypso Lyrics

[verse 1] 
Well the girls in town feeling bad
No more Yankees in Trinidad
They going to close down the base for good
Them girls have to make out how they could
Brother is now they park up in town
In for a penny, and in for a pound
Believe me it's competition for so
Trouble in the town when the price drop low

[Chorus]
So when you bounce up Jean and Dinah
Rosita and Clementina, round the corner posing
Bet your life is something they selling
And if you catch them
You can get em all for nothing
Don't make no row, the yankees gone,
Sparrow take over now

[verse 2]
Things bad is to hear them cry Not a sailor in town, the night clubs dry
Only West Indians like me or you
Are able to get a drink or two
And as we have things back in control
Ah seeking revenge with me heart and soul
Brother when I spread the news around
Is to see how them cave men come into town

[Chorus]

[verse 3]
When the Yankee was in full swing
Just imagine how I was suffering
Mavis told me straight to me face
How she find I too fast and out of place
No, no, no, they would start to fret
Money or not poor Sparrow can't get
Because with the Yankees they have it cool
Calypsonians too hard to fool
It's the glamour boys again
We are going to rule Port of Spain
No more Yankees to spoil the fete
Dorothy have to take what she get
All of them who used to make style
While they taking two shillling with a smile
No more hotel to rest your head
By the sweat of thy brow thou shall eat bread

[Chorus]

Lying Excuses Lyrics - Mighty Sparrow Lyrics - Calypso Lyrics

[verse 1]
Maggy darling, sugar dumpling
Don't get so mad
Please let me explain
Doo doo darling, sugar dumpling
Don't get so mad
Please let me explain

If you see me with some woman
I doh want you misunderstand
Whatever you might see me do
Know my love is true
I'm not being unfaithful to you

De woman you catch me with in de bed
Really didn't have no place to rest she head
Business close down, she lost she wuk
Disappointed, suffering from shock
So ah take she home just relax and cheer she up
I exhausted she said to me
Boy ah so tired and so sleepy
Casually she sat on de bed
And ask me to massage she leg
That's all, that's is all, that is all

[verse 2]
Trouble makers will spread rumours
For confusion, oh no doh take dem on
Just be trusting and doh dig nothing
Try and understand
I'll never do you no wrong

Darling you I'll never deceive
There is no need to disbelieve
Keep your trust and your faith in me
And I promise you there'll be no infidelity
De lady you saw me with de other night
She and she husband just had a fight
Ah fine it was really looking so bad
How de hell she clothes was in de yard
She sit down dey and start to cry like she going mad

De two thousand dollars ah give to she
Was to buy a sandwich and a coffee
Not another ting eh happen
Me and de gyul eh in nothin
That's all, that's is all, that is all

[verse 3]
Let nobody cause you to be jealous and confused
Doh mind dem and dey news
Dey want we to mash up
So dey could come and shack up
And when you refuse
We'll be like two fools singing the blues

Doo doo, why these women doh stop
Always try to set me up
Trying to give you de impression
Somethings wrong when my darling nothing eh going on

De gyul ah was with behind de lamp-post
Doh get vex cause ah was holding she clothes
She's ah old tief from in de east
Is somebody ear-ring she tief
Ah was only trying to hold she for de police

De reason me hand was in she bossom
Ah was feeling to see if she had a gun
She didn't have no gun by she chest
Is why ah was searching under she dress
That's all, that's is all, that is all

[verse 4]

Just because I, am such ah nice guy
Somewhere, somehow it always leave me in row
Helping people, seem to be my trouble
Ah seeing it now
No more will it be allowed

After all meh go help mehself
Give meh problems to someone else
Is too much conquer and confusion
And ah know to mehself I am an innocent man

Ah know dey go tell you me and Miss Leach
Was seen making love on Maracas Beach
Well de fact dat she had on a bikini
And was attacked by African bees
And very bravely I cover she with meh whole body
Well she lock meh neck and she grab meh hand
And with dat she pull meh down in de sand
Ah bee sting meh on meh behind
Ah couldn't help it, ah had to grind

Big Bamboo Lyrics - Mighty Sparrow Lyrics - Calypso Lyrics

I asked my woman what must I do, what must I do
To make her honest and keep love too, and keep love too
She said Sparrow all I want from you, I want from you 
Is a little little piece baby, just a little little piece of the big bamboo

Well she’s ready for, bamboo, grows out from the ground, bamboo
It’s so big and strong, bamboo stand up straight and tall, bamboo
Please it’s what I want bamboo, tadadada bamboo lalalala bamboo laladedada bamboo tadadada
The big big bamboo bamboo lalalala lalalala lalala
Working for the yankee dollars
The big big bamboo bamboo lalalala lalalala lalala
Working for the yankee dollars

I gave my woman a coconut , a coconut
She told me she thought, it was ok but, it is ok but
To my surprise she gave it back to me, right back to me
What good is the nut baby, tell me what good is the nut without the tree

Well she’s ready for, bamboo, grows out from the ground, bamboo
It’s so big and strong, bamboo, stand up straight and tall, bamboo
Please it’s what I want, bamboo, tadadada bamboo lalalala bamboo laladedada bamboo 
The big big bamboo bamboo lalalala lalalala lalala
Working for the yankee dollars The big big bamboo bamboo lalalala lalalala lalala

I gave my woman a sugarcane, a sugarcane
Very very sweet, I must explain, I must explain
And she gave it back much to my surprise, to my surprise
I love this flavour I really,really love this flavour but not the size

Well she’s ready for, bamboo, grows out from the ground, bamboo
It’s so big and strong, bamboo, stand up straight and tall, bamboo
Please it’s what I want, bamboo, tadadada bamboo lalalala bamboo laladedada bamboo dubydubydubydoo

Woman was always fooling man, fooling man
And, but they found out women were always true, always true
To the man then, who would jam them,when they really really would jam them
With the big bamboo

Well they’re ready for, bamboo, grows out from the ground, bamboo
It’s so big and strong, bamboo, stands up straight and tall, bamboo
Please it’s what I want bamboo, tadadada bamboo lalalala bamboo laladedada bamboo dubydubydubydoo

For a woman he brought out Rockefeller Plaza, Rockefeller Plaza
She said Hai Hai Hai no more Ari Ka Toh, Ari Ka Toh
You show up me with your bridges, 
When I only want a few inches at the big bamboo

Well she’s ready for, bamboo, grows out from the ground, bamboo
It’s so big and strong, bamboo, stands up straight and tall, bamboo
Please it’s what I want bamboo, tadadada bamboo lalalala bamboo laladeda bamboo tadadada
The big big bamboo bamboo lalalala lalalala lalala
Working for the yankee dollars

Drink and drunk yes that's me name,

All man fed up with me, cause I

Saltfish Lyrics - Mighty Sparrow Lyrics - Calypso Lyrics

Saltfish stew is what I like
So doo-doo, give me day and night
I like you food, so don't find me rude
My favorite, I sure every man in here already eat it

Saltfish
Nothing in the world sweeter than
Saltfish
English, colloquial, Bajans
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat All saltfish sweet

Very well, I like the taste
Though the smell, sometimes out of place
It hard to take, but make no mistake
I want you to know, it's because it extra sweet it smelling so boy it's

Saltfish
Big money does run behind it
Saltfish
Man does lick down man to find it
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

Some like it hot, some like it cold
No matter what, I take it young or old
When it serve with wine, man does stew it fine
Put no pepper, the bone in the centre does be sweet like sugar

Saltfish
Some men does get drunk to taste it
Saltfish
Some does go and hide to face it
Saltfish It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet

I would die, a happy man
If I close me eye, with piece in me hand
Bury me, in the cemetery
Any money, put a saltfish picture on me tombstone saying

Saltfish
Sparrow was it's greatest lover
Saltfish
He even adored the odor
Saltfish
It's sweeter than meat
When you want to eat
All saltfish sweet
