Keep The City Clean
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


I hear they have a new campaign:
Cleaning Port of Spain
I know they should really clean up town
But they start so wrong
They only put a few dustbin on them lamp-post
Collect fruit skin
But if they don't want no garbage in sight
See me, and I think I'll put them right

They should hold Marabunta Jean
And then hold picky-head Eileen
And then hold stinking-mouth Doreen
If they want to keep the city clean

Yes, they making so much fuss and thing
About mango skin
Old onion and rotten potato
But like they don't know
Some of them girl they have in town
Sweaty going round
I would rather eat a rotten ham
Than to smell upon them each and every man

They should hold Marabunta Jean
And then hold picky-head Eileen
And then hold stinking-mouth Doreen
If they want to keep the city clean

The city council should send me
To clean the city
I could do a proper cleaning job
Starting in them club
Charlotte street does have a few
Not much, only one or two
If get way he laid and then there when ah pass
Is licks on Charlotte street to the La Basse

They should hold Marabunta Jean
And then hold picky-head Eileen
And then hold stinking-mouth Doreen
If they want to keep the city clean

Big-eye Jane and Big Aymal
Spotty football
Broad-zip-mouth and one-brass Angela
Stinking-toe Sheila
They know ah work in rubbish now
They go bawl like a cow
Yes, when you go in the club to buy a flass
And you miss them covering up the La Basse

They should hold Marabunta Jean
And then hold picky-head Eileen
And then hold stinking-mouth Doreen
If they want to keep the city clean

Hey!
Ah found out meh pardner name Ned!
