8-bar intro

Well, it's

Chorus:
Jean and Dinah, Rosita and Clementina,
Round the corner posing, bet your life is something they selling,
And if you catch them broke, you can get 'em all for nothing.
Don't make no row, the Yankees gone and Sparrow take over, aaaaah.
Jean and Dinah, Rosita and Clementina,
Round the corner posing, bet your life is something they selling,
And if you catch them broke, you can get 'em all for nothing.
Don't make no row, the Yankees gone and Sparrow take over now.

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
Hey, 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 price drop low,
So when you bounce up,

Repeat chorus

Verse 2:
Things bad to hear them cry,
Not a sailor in town, the night clubs dry.
Only West Indians like me or you
Going to get a drink or two,
And as we have things back in control,
Ah seeking revenge with me heart and soul.
When I spread the news around,
Is to see how them cave men come to town.
Best believe me.

Repeat chorus

Break

Verse 3:
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 them who used to make style,
Taking two shilling with a smile.
No more hotel to rest your head.
By the sweat of thy brow, thou shall eat bread.
Ah man, well it's...

Repeat chorus

Break

Chorus:
The Lizard run up she foot and it disappear.
Everybody keeps searching everywhere.
Where the lizard, teacher Mildred?
Under she dress, taking a rest.
The way she jolly and happy, I swear the lizard must be tickling she!

Break

Where the lizard, teacher Mildred!

Break

The way she jolly and happy.

Break

Verse:
Playing in class with a lizard in a glass.
The lizard get away from Ruth and run by the teacher foot.
Oh, lord the children all frightened, wonder what gon' happen,
But the teacher laughing out "hee hee hee" while watching everybody.

Repeat chorus

Chorus:
Melda, oh, you making wedding plans.
Carrying me name to Obeah man.
All you do can't get through.
I still ain't goin' marry to you!


Break

Verse 1:
You making yourself a pappy show, Melda.
You making yourself a bloody clown.
Up and down the country looking for Obeah,
And your perspiration smell so strong.
Girl, you only wasting time.
Obeah wedding bells don't chime,
And you can't trap me with necromancy.

Repeat chorus

Break

Verse 2:
The amount of incense that you burn at night,
Lard and garlic stinking up me place.
So much different colour candles that you light
Rubbing red lavender in you face.
Nastiness go cause your death.
Girl, no man can stand your breath.
You too damn nasty.
Get away from me!

Repeat chorus

Break

Chorus:
Drunk and disorderly, always in custody.
Me friends and me family, all man fed up with me,
'Cause I drunk and disorderly, every weekend I in jail.
Drunk and disorderly, nobody to stand me bail.
