Gemma On The Ferris Wheel
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Coney Island in Arima
Who tell cyar' Gemma
Coney Island in Arima
Who tell cyar' Gemma

We had a lot of fun up there
Until she went on the ferris wheel chair
From the time the ferris wheel go up so
She wet up
Never me again Gemma
You could tek me any place
Your behavior in Arima was shocking disgrace
I mean to say... You spoil de people fete
Rain ain't falling – everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you went on the ferris wheel

Everybody start balling:
"Wha kind a strange rain is this wha fallin?"
Stars come out and the moon high, shining bright... No cloud in the sky
A fella say once he get wet so: Four-day mornin' under bubaloops window
(Not sure of this line)
An old woman start to complain - first time she see yellow rain

Never me again Gemma
You could tek me any place
Your behavior in Arima was shocking disgrace
I mean to say... You spoil de people fete
Rain ain't falling – everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you went on the ferris wheel

People scrambling for shelter, some with rain cloak, some with umbrella
But those who far from the ferris wheel laughin
Because they know dam well rain ain't falling
The rain fall on a Bajan big dress
From she chest and the whole dress in a mess
"Wha kind a ting is this?" she start to complain
"I never know rain water could stain"

Never me again Gemma
You could tek me any place
Your behavior in Arima was shocking disgrace
I mean to say... You spoil de people fete
Rain ain't falling – everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you went on the ferris wheel

They had to stop this merry go round
Rain stop! Gemma come back down
She white, white, white like piece a chalk
She so frighten the girl can't talk
People surround to hear she explain:
What the whole gang was mistaking for rain
I nearly faint when I hear she say that:
The orange juice she had throw away

Never me again Gemma
You could tek me any place
Your behavior in Arima was shocking disgrace
I mean to say... You spoil de people fete
Rain ain't falling – everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you went on the Ferris wheel
