Jemma on the Ferris Wheel
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Coney Island in Arima
Who tell me cyat Jemma
Coney Island in Arima
Who tell me take Jemma
We had a lot of fun up there
Until she went in the Ferris wheel chair
From the time the Ferris wheel go up so
She wet everybody below

Never me again Jemma to take you any place
Your behaviour in Arima was a shocking disgrace
I mean to say, you spoil the people fête
Rain ain't falling - everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you wet down the Ferris wheel

Everybody start bawling:
"What kind of strange rain is this what falling?"
Stars come out and the moon high
Shining bright, not a cloud in the sky
A fella say once he get wet so
"Foreday morning under Boobooloops window"
An old woman start to complain
First time she see yellow rain

Never me again Jemma to take you any place
Your behaviour in Arima was a shocking disgrace
I mean to say, you spoil the people fête
Rain ain't falling - everybody soaking wet
Girl you know how shame I feel
You coulda do that before 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 laughing
Because they know damn well rain ain't falling
The rain fall on a Bajan big dress
From she chest and the whole dress in a mess
"What kinda thing is this?" she start to complain
"I never know rain water could stain"

Never me again Jemma to take you any place
Your behaviour in Arima was a shocking disgrace
I mean to say, you spoil the people fête
Rain ain't falling - everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
Tell me why you wet down the Ferris wheel

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

Never me again Jemma to take you any place
Your behaviour in Arima was a shocking disgrace
I mean to say, you spoil the people fête
Rain ain't falling - everybody soaking wet
You know how shame I feel
You coulda do that before you went on the Ferris wheel
