60 Million Frenchman
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Hey, you say that you love
And you'll give your heart
But you have a whole body
Why not give each part?
When a love is true
There ain't nothing you wouldn't do
The French people know the trick
So they have everybody lick!

They say is Napoleon who start this thing
Every other Frenchman only copying
People used to always say how it shouldn't be
Now this thing is rampant here in this country
Long time when you catch a man committing this crime
First thing he will say, "Oh, gosh, boy, first time"
Nowadays he making his excuse in song
Singing, "60 million Frenchmen could not be wrong!"

It's easy to say
"I love you my dear"
But you have to prove to her
Your love is sincere
There's only one way
So hear what I say
If you want to keep your sweetheart
Go to Martinique and learn the art

They say is Napoleon who start this thing
Every other Frenchmen only copying
Hear them socialism then "Who you talking to, me?"
Now this thing is rampant here in this country
Long time when you catch a man committing this crime
First thing he will say, "Oh, gosh, boy, first time"
Nowadays he making his excuse in song
Singing, "60 million Frenchmen could not be wrong!"

All over the place
People carrying on
Especially them old time calypsonian
They like the fun
Hey. I never catch none
But Blakey tell me about one
And I don't intend to rest
'Til he picture hit the express

They say is Napoleon who start this thing
Every other Frenchman only copying
People used to always say how it shouldn't be
Now this thing is rampant here in this country
Long time when you catch a man committing this crime
First thing he will say, "Oh, gosh, boy, first time"
Nowadays he singing you a brand-new song
What the song is? "60 million Frenchmen could not be wrong!"

This to me is one of the most emotional calypsos in the context of music and all those that are having problems recognizing the theme of this calypso today, the authorities back then had the same problem that is the reason why this calypso was not blacklisted. The lyrics is really beyond reproach and although I am one of Dr. Sparrow greatest critics, I am verily verily conscious of his contribution to the art of calypso. I have personal issues with him and that's that but he is the ultimate!
