Rope
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Time to unite
They want to fight
Making excuse saying they tight
While everyone was jumping up
And having a good time
They were pelting and fighting
Trying to spoil a sound lime
Ah buy up all meh gear and well prepare
Oh, so tell them beware
For carnival while jumping in the band
I′m going to have a parcel in meh hand
If they cherish the hope
That they go tackle and beat this dope
Ah want them know ah ain't making joke
This year ah walk with meh rope

They come to town
Feeling they strong
And only pushing people round
Boasting how they afraid no one
Not even the police
But this year is for love and peace
So this nonsense must cease
To be too hot to fight, you go get bite
′Cause all of we tight

For carnival while jumping in the band
I'm going to have a parcel in meh hand
If they cherish the hope
That they go tackle and beat this dope
Ah want them know ah ain't making joke
This year ah walk with meh rope

Idle all day
Doh work, no way
And have more cash than who get pay
Spend it all on Italian westerns
To learn more gun play
Bust it, touch it or practice it
But on carnival day
I warned all them Sancho and Jango
This year won′t be so

For carnival while jumping in the band
I′m going to have a parcel in meh hand
If they cherish the hope
That they go tackle and beat this dope
Ah want them know ah ain't making joke
This year ah walk with meh rope

This carnival
No bacchanal
We want a peaceful festival
No battle pelting or steelband clashing
Just mas and music
Regardless of where your band come from
Just behave in public
Well, all who playing mad and think they bad
Must be on they guard

For carnival while jumping in the band
I′m going to have a parcel in meh hand
If they cherish the hope
That they go tackle and beat this dope
Ah want them know ah ain't making joke
This year ah walk with meh rope

@Riyadh Rafique,
You’re welcome bro! Yes, I did see those comments but I just take the opportunity to mention it as often as I could, for those who might not see those other comments. I want as many people as I can, to know of his contribution to the artform and give the honor and the recognition and the respect due, at all times. Blessings!!!😊

@Randy Roberts Look at Sparrow's Drunk & Disorderly (1972). I wrote about Joker's death after reading it via the Trinidad Guardian, Express and Newsday. Thanks buddy!!!!
