Castro Eating Banana
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


If you know confusion
With me and my little children
Talking ′bout confusion
With me and my little children
They went in meh bureau
And pull out a picture of Castro
Showing it around
The grandmother see it, she faint on the ground
And if you hear she...
"No children, no
You mustn't look at that
Go on and put it back
Tell your father he too damn slack!"
"Wait, hold your horse, hold your horse granny
Please don′t get cross
Don't mistake meh picture, mama
Is Castro eating a banana!"

She is the kind of lady
Always in church on Sunday
Bible in she hand
And always leading some procession
Now, way you see she faint
When she wake up she pray to all them saint:
"Please forgive me for what I've seen"
And there′s holy water she bathing in
Oh meh Lord...

"No children, no
You mustn′t look at that
Go on and put it back
Tell your father he too damn slack!"
"Wait, hold your horse, hold your horse
Please don't get cross
Don′t mistake meh picture, mama
Is Castro and a banana!"

If you hear the lecture
Meh wife livid 'bout the picture
How I am such a heathen
Bring picture to corrupt them children
This time smelling salts wake granny
Opened she eyes, but bawled out when she saw me
Like the picture flashed in she brain
How you don′t know, she faint again
Oh Lord...

"No children, no
You mustn't look at that
Go on and put it back
Tell your father he too damn slack!"
"Wait, hold your horse, hold your horse
Please don′t get cross
Don't mistake meh picture, mama
Is Castro eating a banana!"

She feel a little better
When the doctor come with a stretcher
Give she an injection
She get up making a good confession
Same time a priest from the village
Enter the house and now get the message
She hold the priest and slap at she heart:
"Father, save me from Lucifer!"

"Oh no children, no,
You mustn't look at that
Go on and put it back
Tell your father he too damn slack!"
"Wait, hold your horse, hold your horse granny
Please don′t get cross
Don′t mistake meh picture, mama
Is Castro eating a banana!"
