Eve
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Since in the days of Adam,
Eve was making confusion
Since in the days of Adam,
Eve was making confusion
We' have a next Eve in St. Thomas
She is a trouble maker of class
Fifty years old and this old brute
Still want to share the forbidden fruit

She so old and frustrated
Always intoxicated
Always sueing somebody
Or somebody sueing she
She so damn miserable
And disagreeable
This old witch so bad
Ah had to run back to Trinidad

Night after night she worry
If a next girl just talk to me
What is the reason I don't know
Why she getting on so
Sometime she face bright like a moon
Sometime it wrinkle up like a prune
With all of that she fussing from day to day
Eve with she face like Dorian Grey

She so old and frustrated
Always intoxicated
Always sueing somebody
Or somebody sueing she
She so damn miserable
And disagreeable
This old witch so bad
Ah had to run back to Trinidad

I come to one conclusion
Her big problem is a husband
Fifty years old and she ain't settle
Now is the time she fall in stinging nettle
So there is nothing more she can do
Than to make trouble for me and you
Poor soul accept my sympathy
May she find a man to make she happy

She so old and frustrated
Always intoxicated
Always sueing somebody
Or somebody sueing she
She so damn miserable
And disagreeable
This old witch so bad
Ah had to run back to Trinidad

She walks about the city
Owing almost everybody
And she wouldn't pay one penny
Unless is through lawyers, judge or jury
This confusing Jezebel
Will confuse the devil in hell
That is a bastard of class
And if I had a dog I won't call it Eve.

Eve so old and intoxicated
Always frustrated
Always sueing somebody
Or somebody sueing she
She's so damn miserable
She's so and disagreeable




This old witch so bad
Ah had to run back to Trinidad

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Mighty Sparrow's song "Eve" speak of a woman who is causing trouble and confusion, just like Eve did in the days of Adam. The song talks about a woman in St. Thomas who is fifty years old and still wants to share the forbidden fruit, which could be interpreted as a metaphor for her wanting to do things she shouldn't do. She is described as old, frustrated, intoxicated, disagreeable, and miserable, and always suing or being sued by someone. The singer had to run back to Trinidad to avoid her constant worrying and fussing. The song implies that her problems stem from not having a husband and that she is making trouble for everyone else because of her unhappiness.


The song is a commentary on human nature and how some people can be difficult and cause trouble for others. It also touches upon the topic of aging and how it can affect a person's behavior and outlook on life. The lyrics are cleverly written and full of metaphors, making them open to interpretation.
