Both O Dem
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


I'm in love with Betty-Lou
She sister Mary say she love me too
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(With both o' dem, with both o' dem)
Ah tell she tings doh work out so
She say de next sister ain't bound to know,
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)
Just because I ain't like dem scandal
Deh have yuh partner fool all day
Kitchener like all dem bacchanal
So ah call Kitchy on de phone one day
Dis is what de old man say:

Do it! Do it! Do it! Oh God, Birdy
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Man, come on!
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)

Carlene, is you ah waited for
Ah ah want ah lover not no brother-in-law,
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(With both o' dem, with both o' dem)
I know all men like to roam
And I know charity begins at home
(With both o' dem, both o' dem)
(With both o' dem, both o' dem)
But de sister such ah loving child
All relationship is great
And she always wear ah charming smile
Kitchener say "Birdy, doh hesitate
There is nothing to sit and contemplate!"

Do it! Do it! Do it! Oh God, Birdy
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Man, come on!
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)

(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)

Though she prettier than me
I could boogie down better than she
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)
Ah remember Lord Melody,
Shame and scandal in de family,
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(With both o' dem, with both o' dem)
All de brakes ah brakes was all in vein
She ask me if ah showing off
Then she start to tackle me again
Kitchener say: "Boy you must treat dem rough
Otherwise dem woman go say you tough!"

Do it! Do it! Do it! Oh God, Birdy
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Man come on!
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)

If I was ah different shot
Maybe I would ah get trapped enough
(With both o' dem, both o' dem)
(With both o' dem, both o' dem)
All de offers that she made
I tink bout it but I cyah make de grade
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)
Where I empty in the spice of life
Polygamy today I dread
Thank Kitchener for his good advice
Ah still could remember what he said
De message still ringing in meh head:

Do it! Do it! Do it! Oh God, Birdy
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Gih she what she want,
Man, come on!
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, with both o' dem)

(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem, both o' dem)

(Both o' dem, both o' dem)
(Both o' dem...)

Definitely one of my favorites of Sparrows'. Still sounding awesome in 2022. Signature Sparrow lyrics, humor and story-telling leaving the rest to your imagination. The Base guitar Baseline is a Groove Master. Love the relationship between Mighty Sparrow and Lord Kitchener. Twin Masters and Mavericks of Calypso. Loving this Jam in 2022........from Lagos, Aug 18th 9.14pm
