Freezing In NY
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


In Trinidad you go hear the talk
Sparrow gone up to New York
In Trinidad you go hear the talk
Sparrow gone up to New York
They seem to think ah feeling glad
But I wish I was back in Trinidad
The temperature up here is so cold
To keep warm I had to dance the rock ′n' roll

Ah catching cold sweat
Ah freezing to death
This is not for me
I′m in misery
So before any confusion
Ah making reservation
Now ah waiting for the aeroplane
To take me to Port of Spain

I left my friends and my family
And come up straight to New York City
I had one intention in mind
Some Yankee dollars I want to find
But in my search to get this dough
The temperature drop below zero
Snow start to fall down in meh yard
So now ah want to go back to Trinidad

Ah catching cold sweat
Ah freezing to death
This is not for me
I'm in misery
So before any confusion
Ah making reservation
Now ah waiting for the aeroplane
To take me to Port of Spain

I was standing by a bus stop
Freezing and sneezing, ah nearly drop
With nearly twenty inches of snow
Ah can't get a bus, they running too slow
In all my misery and grief
I started to tremble like a leaf
Man when the bus did come up to me
I was stiff like the Statue of Liberty

Ah catching cold sweat
Ah freezing to death
This is not for me
I′m in misery
So before any confusion
Ah making reservation
Now ah waiting for the aeroplane
To take me to Port of Spain
