Raphaela
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Down Venezuela
Is there ah met with Raphaela, oh yeah
Down Venezuela
Is there ah met with Raphaela
Ah try ah old trick on she
But she was too smart for me
When ah finish ah didn't want to pay
So she scramble on to me before ah get away, bawling out:

No, no, no, don't go amigo, usted tengo mucho cabez
Dame dinero ahora, yo no habla Inglés
Mama mia tengo revolver, papa mia mad, oh
Dame dinero, Sparrow
Or you don't go back to Trinidad

Well I start to tremble
When the crowd start to assemble
So then ah jump through the window
Is there ah bounce up with Pedro
"Qué pasa señor, why you jump through the window for?"
Pull out a razor, so ah run back inside again
The sister start up the same refrain:

No, no, no, don't go amigo, usted tengo mucho cabez
Dame dinero ahora, yo no habla Inglés
Mama mia tengo revolver, papa mia mad, oh
Dame dinero, Sparrow
Or you don't go back to Trinidad

Negro!
Where have you been?
Hey negro!

You can imagine
Meh belly boiling like a engine
But when ah watch at the crowd so
Ah say to me self no more Sparrow
But then I shouldn't comment
I was being treated like a President
They surround me with pliers, hammers and shears
And is just so they treat President Perez

No, no, no, no, amigo usted tengo mucho cabez
Dame dinero ahora, yo no habla Inglés
Mama mia tengo revolver, papa mia mad
Dame dinero, Sparrow
Or you don't go back to Trinidad, do you hear?

Hey negro!

No licks ain't pass yet
But ah swimming in cold sweat
Ah ain't know what to study
Ah say ah done dead already
At a certain time concentration stop
Ah think ah start to throw up
When ah wake up from the hospital it was no trick
Is a pelau meh girl cook that had me sick

But I still hear it:

No, no, no, no, amigo usted tengo mucho cabez
Dame dinero ahora, yo no habla Inglés
Mama mia tengo revolver, papa mia mad, oh
Dame dinero, Sparrow
Or you don't go back to Trinidad

Hey negro!
