Short Little Shorts
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


The Governor crazy
He change the law for a lady
The Governor crazy
He change the law for a young lady
A policeman had she under arrest
Claiming she wasn't properly dressed
But when the news reach around that was big uproar
The Governor get mad and change the law

Leave her alone, do you understand
Hands off, don't touch, that's my command
He said I love to see her in the Bermuda Shorts
Yes darling you look so pretty in the short little shorts

Oh, oh, my dear
This time if you see she
With the shorts roll up, up above the knee
That's what she was wearing
You could imagine how the Governor staring
Yes he watch till he mouth start to dribble
Then he scratch he head and he fix he spectacle
Looking as pale as if he was dead
With his two big eyes popping out his head

Leave her alone, do you understand
Hands off, don't touch, that's my command
He said I love to see her in the Bermuda Shorts
Yes darling you look so pretty in the short little shorts

You talking 'bout figure
She had a shape like a real Coca-Cola
So when she said goodbye
The Governor had water in his eyes
It looked as if he was planning to attack
So the Secretary and them had to hold him back
Because the way he watch she
If they didn't hold him back he would have bite up the lady

Leave her alone, do you understand
Hands off, don't touch, that's my command
He said I love to see her in the Bermuda Shorts
Yes darling you look so pretty in the short little shorts

Taxi drivers hold up
Just to see how the shorts was rolled up
She think it was so cute
But in my opinion it was like a bathing suit
Donkeys just bounced off with a cars
And the donkey wouldn't move a jot further
All the stevedores quit working on the Wharf
Still the Governor don't want her to take it off

Leave her alone, do you understand
Hands off, don't touch, that's my command
He said I love to see her in the Bermuda Shorts
Yes darling you look so pretty in the short little shorts
