Queens Canary
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Once more, gentlemen!

Well they pass out the law to the people
Keep the town as clean as a whistle
The governor pass out the law to the people
Keep the town as clean as a whistle
No messing about in the place
Keep your yard as clean as your face
Everyone know the penalty
Untidyness is six months in custody

Up came Mr. Moses
In his belly was a bunch of roses
So he went and stoop down right on the highway...
And relieved himself of the bouquet

But at the same time a police was coming
He didn't see what Moses was doing
But he kept walking up slowly
Seeing if the place was tidy
This time Moses start to tremble
As soon as he saw the constable
Before the policeman knew what was wrong
Moses take off he hat and cover it down

Up came the Officer
And ask him what is the matter
He say "The Queen's Canary fly away...
But ah have it covered down dey"

The policeman fly in a rage
And ask him "Why don't you get a cage?"
He said "I couldn't leave the birdie so
I am afraid it would fly and go
If you could keep it cover for me
I would get a cage and come back in a hurry"
The stupid policeman accepted that
Stooped down in the road and holding the hat

Up came the Inspector
And ask him what is the matter
He said "The Queen's Canary fly away...
But ah have it covered down dey"

The Inspector was very, very greedy
So he jump out he car in a hurry
Because if a man catch the Queen's Canary
His reward is supposed to be heavy
Well without any delay
Sent the policeman two blocks away
Of all the dirty tricks upon the shelf
He wanted the reward money for himself

So he raise the hat very slowly
Feeling for the Queen's Canary
But when he snatch, he hold something soft instead...
He said "I broke every bone in its body, hahaha
Which means the nasty Canary is dead"
