No More Rocking
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


I say Calypso sweeping the place
Like if she come out a space
I say Calypso sweeping the place
Like if she come out a space
I can remember rock and roll
Had the whole place under control
Since calypso leave Trinidad
Rock and roll really suffering bad

No more rocking, no more rolling
No more jumping up like a fool
Whether you crazy or you lazy
Man, you just got to take it cool
This is calypso and everyone know
It is strictly rhythm and rhyme
Whether young or old
Jump in the line and shake your body in time

Plenty people trying their best
But they making a mess
Just for the money they put on a show
And tell you it's calypso
But you should come to Trinidad
See how people jumping mad
For as soon as we hear the true melody
The jumping spirit comes naturally

We don't have
No more rocking, no more rolling
No more jumping up like a fool
Whether you crazy or you lazy
Man, you just got to take it cool
This is calypso by the Sparrow
It is strictly rhythm and rhyme
Whether young or old
Jump in the line and shake your body in time

Some Trinidadians, big and small
Ain't like calypso at all
And some again love it more than daily bread
But can't sing if you kill them dead
Don't care how good this musician may be
The ryhthm just comes naturally
If it's for you it's yours my friend
This is gifted to certain men and women

No rocking, no rolling
No jumping up like a fool
Whether you crazy or you lazy
Man, you just got to take it cool
This is calypso and everyone know
It is strictly rhythm and rhyme
Whether young or old
Jump in the line and shake your body in time

We have musicians who bad like yaws
Men like Cyril Diaz
Ordinarily he is just like the rest
Doing his very best
But when it comes to Calypso
He is the boss as we all know
Whether he is hungry or sad
And you say Calypso Diaz gone mad

He don't have
No rocking, no rolling
No jumping up like a fool
Whether you crazy or you lazy
Man, you just got to take it cool
This is calypso and everyone know
It is strictly rhythm and rhyme
Whether young or old
Jump in the line and shake your body in time
