Steering Wheel
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


She tell me "No, I ain't going Carenage
Stay right here in the garage
I am afraid and you know after hours
Down dey have night prowlers
Anything you have to do, do it here
We ain't have nothing to fear"
When I hold she to demonstrate meh plan
Is then the trouble began, man

She start to working up and working up and working up
Hmmm and she carrying on
She foot stick up in the steering wheel
And blowing the horn, if you hear it?
She father come out
Big machete in the hand and so help me
The old man started to shout, and if you hear him:

"Shame, Sparrow, shame
You're spoiling meh daughter name
I tell you don't come back here again
You are the one to blame
Take care meh daughter strain"

Can you imagine this long-legged woman
In such an awkward position?
And me, a friend of the family
Couldn't be more guilty
If she did keep she tail quiet
Nobody would'a know the garage have activity
But she keeping up like she mad
Holding she leg like a blasted flag

She start to working up and working up and working up
And she carrying on
She foot stick up in the steering wheel
Blowing the horn, if you hear it
She father come out
Big stick in the hand and so help me
The old man started to shout, oh meh Lawd:

"Shame, Sparrow, shame
You're spoiling meh daughter name
Don't come back here again
Sparrow, you are the one to blame
And take care meh daughter strain"

This time the dog started to bark
Don't talk how the garage dark
Ah start to feel in the dark because I couldn't see
She "Hee hee, boy you tickling me!"
This time she ankle quite by the gear lever
And she big toe hook the indicator
Ah fighting hard to untangle she
But the noise waking everybody

Man, she start to working up and working up and working up
And she carrying on
She foot stick up in the steering wheel
And blowing the horn...
She father come out
Big stick in the hand and the old fool
Started to shout, if you hear me

"Shame, Sparrow, shame
You're spoiling meh daughter name
I tell you don't come back here again
You are the one to blame
Take care meh daughter strain"

She little brother and she two nephew
Come outside and peeping too
Ah start to run, run away from the car
Ah couldn't face the grandmother
This time meh jacket fly, meh shoes in meh hand
Meh pants get away from meh midsection
In the dark I stumble and fall
The dog take meh socks, underpants and all

Mean she dey, she working up and working up and working up
And she carrying on
She foot stick up in the steering wheel
And blowing the horn, loud loud loud!
She father come out
One big machete in the hand, and
And the old man started to shout, if you hear him:

"Shame, Sparrow, shame
You're spoiling meh daughter name
I tell you don't come back here again
Take care meh daughter strain
Something in she brain
Take care meh daughter strain
Shame, Sparrow, shame
Take care meh daughter strain
Shame, Sparrow, shame
Take care meh daughter strain!"
