Roy Sweeter Than You
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)

Oh he ain't working, no way
He ain't getting no pay
He never have money
And he always hungry
The woman make up she mind
She ain't want no man make she see hard time
So, as he went off to Barbados
She marry to Roy and throw out he clothes

She write and tell him:

"Darling, this is goodbye
Darling, don't worry to cry, cry, cry
Oh honey, I know how you feel, love
And your love is real
I can't help it, dou dou"
(Roy sweeter than you!)

Yes, you think what she said was true?
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Nah, ah know you believe it too
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Marjorie, you inside this callaloo
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Yes, you eat all the callaloo
(Roy sweeter than you!)

(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)

Yes, the woman was candid
The Sagaman take too much for granted
And he always sweaty
Smelling like a fish vendor on the jetty
Then the woman bounce with Roy
Who is a much more refined and decent boy
She let go Sagaman so cool:
"Go in the ring and take cuff, you big belly fool!"

"Darling, this is goodbye
Darling, don't worry to cry, cry, cry
Oh honey, I know how you feel, love
And your love is real
I can't help it, dou dou!"
(Roy sweeter than you!)

So you be in the wedding too
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Yes, you eat all the callaloo
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Frankie, you believe it too?
(Roy sweeter than you!)
I wish I was there to get a piece of manicou
(Roy sweeter than you!)

(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)

Then they had an at all talk
Sagaman say he want to go to New York
He can't get a visa
The police record too bad, he can't go away
All ah that have him mad
Life was really getting hard
So now he out to destroy
Walkin' round with a big dagger to kill Roy

Now what's the chorus:

"Darling, boy this is goodbye
Darling, don't worry to cry, cry, cry, oh yeah
Honey, I know how you feel, love
And your love is real
I can't help it, dou dou!"
(Roy sweeter than you!)

Yes, you kill Roy believe it too
(Roy sweeter than you!)
Frankie, you was in the wedding too
(Roy sweeter than you!)
You eat all the grub and callaloo
(Roy sweeter than you!)
I wish I was there to taste all the manicou
(Roy sweeter than you!)

(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)
(Roy sweeter than you!)

MASTERPIECE UPLOAD ""GLENROY JOSEPH"" I'M BIG FOLLOWER OF VINTAGE CALYPSO / KAISO. THE ORCHESTRA OF YESTERYEAR SOUNDS SO MUCH DIFFERENT FROM NOWADAYS BAND.....ONLY A MATTER OF TIME WHEN THE ""NEXT GENERATION"" COMES ALONG, JUST COMPUTER MUSIC THEY WANT NO BANDS INVOLVED.
