Charlie
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


This morning 'bout half past four
They had a big confusion next door
This morning 'bout half past four
They had a big confusion next door
The women said openly
"Charlie you're avoiding me
And you're getting me head confused
With all your blasted lying excuse"

Man you're always sleepy
And you're always tired
When you ain't hungry
Is when you feeling bad
In the night I can't touch you
You does even vex when I watch you
But between food and sleep and the thing where I want
Which more important?

They argue 'til break of day
I couldn't hear what the fella say
But the woman was getting on
You could see she wasn't making fun
Like she ain't getting satisfaction
With this sleepy head old man
So the morning she ran amock
Bawling "Charlie come and do you work!"

Man you're always sleepy
And you're always tired
When you ain't hungry
Is when you feeling bad
In the night I can't touch you
You does even vex when I watch you
But between food and sleep and the thing where I want
Which more important?

Imagine me ah just come
From the club ah loaded with rum
Ah can't even stand up straight
So ah lean me head on me gate
Is then I hear the chouchou
"Charlie I got feelings too!"
When I hear how Charlie back-back
Ah sober up and push me ears in the crack

Ah hear:

Man you're always sleepy
And you're always tired
When you ain't hungry
Charlie is the time you feeling bad
In the night I can't touch you
You does even vex when I watch you
But between food and sleep and the thing where I want
Which more important?

Before I know what they talking 'bout
"Clicks!" I see the lights went out
Ah hear the bedroom door shut "Bram!"
So I decide well it's time to scram
But ah drunk and ah staggering
Wayla, wayla, ah started singing
Ah fall down in a rubbish pan
And ah singing the chorus like the woman

Charlie sleepy, you're always sleepy
And you're always tired, sleepy-head!
When you ain't hungry
Is when you feeling bad
In the night I can't touch you
You does even vex when I watch you
But between food and sleep and the thing where I want
Which more important?

Shame on you, Charlie!
