Mr. Robinson & Lock Joint
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Port of Spain got sewerage scheme
Well it′s now here clean
Port of Spain got sewerage scheme
Well it's now here clean
Lock Joint are picking up all the waste
From your place and that′s the case
I think it's a job of class,
The only dirty place now is the Labasse
Let me tell you...
I believe in sanitation (it is a good thing)
But Mr Robinson and Lock Joint (pulling and tugging)
You see, you got to buy food, you got to eat good
Before Lock Joint get something
But the taxman so fierce, the food getting scarce
Them pipe go live on wind

The big, big pipes that does carry plenty load
Down Mucurapo road
Well, the only impression that I got
St. James people does eat a lot
Diego Martin ain't making fun
With some good size one, just like in town
But Belmont and Laventille
Have the smallest switch pipe I ever see

Whey you talking?

The people they got in Belmont (also Laventille)
Can′t supply Lock Joint with nothing (in a quantity)
You see, they got to buy food, they got to eat good
Before Lock Joint get something
But the taxman so fierce, the food getting scarce
Them pipe going to live on wind

All through the city is big hole
Motor car lost control
Man, you bumping up like your riding on a camel
Dust block up your nostril
In New York you know about instant coffee
Instant tea for when you′re in a hurry
But in town here the case is blood
Every instant you inhale it's instant mud

Have you ever seen a cowboy (lassoing cattle?)
Kerchief round he nose through the dust (that was strong people)
If you ain′t sneezing, it's then you stifling
You fighting to stay healthy
Lock Joint is good for us but please keep down the dust
Them pipes going to stay empty

Dungaree and khaki is the thing
That is all people wearing
Executives and men who out on strike
Toute moune dress alike
When the wind blow for miles around
All through town, every building brown
You working hard to get it complete
But to know if it working we got to eat

Whey you talking?

I believe in sanitation (it is a good thing)
Mr Robinson and Lock Joint (pulling and tugging)
You got to buy food, you got to eat good
Before Lock Joint get something
But the taxman so fierce, the food getting scarce
Them pipe going to live on wind
