Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Big bacchanal in a well-known family
They discussing popularity
Big bacchanal in a well-known family
They discussing popularity
Three people involved as the topic go
Lord Hailes, Dr. Williams and Sparrow
It start up like sport, I don't know why they fought
But they end up in the blackguard court

The father say he want Dr. Williams
The big son say no
Lord Hailes is the only man for he
All the other men could go
Riot now start up in the place
The father get ignorant
You know the niece and the aunt
The mother and the daughter
Sparrow is the man they want

Being a big supporter of PNM
The father try to convince them
Say what you want he was solid as a rock
Pointing out the greatness of the Doc
He preach and he preach but all the while
The women watching my picture with a big big smile
Even the old grandmother, she ain't care about he
She only singing "Robbery with V"

The father say he want Dr. Williams
The big son say no
Lord Hailes is the only man for he
All the other men could go
Riot now start up in the place
The father get ignorant
Because the niece and the aunt
The mother and the daughter
Sparrow is the man they want

Wepsee mama!

Sparrow is the most popular man on the scene
We does even see him on the screen
The husband get vex and the big son start to shout:
"All you ain't know what you talking 'bout
Furthermore if all you continue so
Let Sparrow get some place for all you to go"
You know he beat the wife, all she skin in welts
Make she say she rather Lord Hailes

Oh the father say he want Dr. Williams
The big son say no
Lord Hailes is the only man for he
All the other men could go
Trouble now start out in the place
The father get ignorant
Because the niece and the aunt
The mother and the daughter
Sparrow is the man they want

Listen to meh gospel...

Well the husband take off like a jet plane through the door
To meet the Doctor at Piarco
In no time at all he was out of Port of Spain
He reach Piarco in the rain
Passing through the crowd he get a big shock
People cheering, I shaking hands with the Doc
He say "Who is that boy making himself a papee-show?"
A fellow say "Meh ain't know, but he been talking to Sparrow"

The father say he want Dr. Williams
The big son say no
Lord Hailes is the only man for he
All the other men could go
Riot break away in the place
The father get ignorant
While the niece and the aunt
The mother and the daughter
Sparrow is the man they want, yes!
