One more time!

Say it out loud!

I met a lovely lady, one night in a dance
She wanted to entertain me, so I took the chance
Ah give she twenty dollars entertainment fee
When ah tell she "go ahead", hear what the girl said to me:

"The customer′s always right and to please you is my delight
I am here to entertain, I ain't want your money in vain
But if you really want good performance
And you really want to enjoy this romance
You got to make up your mind," she said, "meh number is 69"

Ring me!

Solo for so

She had a lovely figure and pretty for so
Boy she had meh gazing at her from she head to toe
Though I never reach that number ah willing to try
But I ain′t know how to answer, ah bashful and shy

She say, come on!

"The customer's always right and to please you is my delight
I am here to entertain, I ain't want your money in vain
But if you really want good performance
I ain′t believe in a one-sided romance
You got to make up your mind, meh number is 69"

Ring me anytime!

Well believe me

Ah change the conversation, ah say well she mad
Let we talk ′bout something else, gal you could play card
Come let me show you black jack she say "Sparrow take your time
Black jack too hard, I ain't like it, talk about 69"

Way you talking!

"The customer′s always right and to please you is my delight
I am here to entertain, I ain't want your money in vain
But if you really want good performance
And you really want to enjoy this romance
You got to make up your mind, meh number is 69"

Ring me!

Well I was so embarrassed later when ah find
I was judging this woman by meh dirty mind
I was so wrong about her and I′m so sorry
I was thinking she was thinking I had habits like Melody

When she tell me:

"The customer's always right and to please you is my delight
I am here to entertain, I ain′t want your money in vain
But if you really want good performance
And you really want to enjoy this romance
Twenty bucks is all meh lime, the lagniappe is 69"

Way you talking!





Stupid!

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the Mighty Sparrow's song "Meh No. Is 69" narrate a story about a man who meets a woman at a dance and pays her $20 for her entertainment fee. The woman tells the man that she is there to entertain him and that she wants to please him. However, she also tells him that if he wants to enjoy the romance, he needs to make up his mind and call her at 69, implying a sexual innuendo. The man is hesitant, but the woman persists, and he ultimately realizes that he was wrong to judge her based on his dirty mind.


The song portrays a relationship between the male and the female characters while playing with the double meaning of the number 69. The woman seems confident and in control, whereas the man is shy and hesitant, highlighting the power dynamics between the sexes. The song also highlights the importance of communication in relationships, as the man misunderstands the woman's intentions, initially judging her based on his assumptions.

This maths formula 69 has been controversial ever since.For some it's easily solvable whilst for others it's a problem to comprehend. The Doc encountered a situation where the Damsel found his Black Jack was too hard to play and he being a Doctor of Letters found the Maths difficult . The secret to Maths is practice and Trinis learn very fast, so I am sure that the Doc was able to understand it quickly. His classic" 60 million french men could not be wrong" is testimony to that. Thanks.
