Toronto Mas'
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Every year Toronto putting on a big show
Carnival they call Caribana
Jigging to a sweet tune, sweating in dey costume
Playing dey mas′ in Canada
See them how dey jumping up and down
Fighting to do we thing
Shaking up dey bomsie out of time
Chipping with an awkward swing

They wild
Toronto gone wild
Playing mas
Trinidadian style
Steelband beat
Music sweet
And all them white woman
Goin' be in the street

Oh Lawd, he he!

See them how they bumping thicker than a dumpling
Woman in the place like lentil peas
Talking like Barbadian, talking like Jamaican
Telling you dey from the West Indies
A little bit of sunshine get them red
So they staggering in the band
And when the liquor fly up in dey head
They tackling any man

I tell you:

They wild
Toronto gone wild
Playing mas
Trinidadian style
Steelband beat
And the music sweet
And all them white woman
Goin′ be in the street

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Ah see a band of Moko Jumbie, two Jab Molassie
And a Frenchman dressed up in a negligée
A brassiere by the bum bum like two big toolum
In the middle of the night he playing J'ouvert
He looking for a man to seduce them
And then he go feel alright
Ah carry Bill Trotman and introduce him
If you see them how they hug up tight

Mama yo!

They wild
Toronto gone wild
They playing mas
Trinidadian style
Steelband beat
And the music sweet
And all them white woman
Goin' be in the street

"Toronto Mas": The tight, rolling rhythm section and the counter melody by the horn section is nothing short of orgasmic.
