William the Conqueror
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


I am sure you heard the story
Between Big Brain and Big Belly
I am sure you know the story
Between the Brain and the Belly
Well, Sparrow ain′t 'fraid to talk
Who don′t like it can take a walk
Fight finish, no bruise, no cuts
But a man fall down on he guts

People bawling:

Praise little Eric, rejoice and be glad
We have a better future here in Trinidad
PNM, it ain't have nobody like them
For they have a champion leader: William the Conqueror!

I am no politician
But I could understand
If it wasn't for Brother Willie
And his ability
Trinidad wouldn′t go, neither wouldn′t come
We used to vote for roti and rum
Nowadays we eating all Indians and them
And in the ending, we voting for PNM

So darling:

Praise little Eric, rejoice and be glad
We have a better future here in Trinidad
PNM, it ain't have nobody like them
For they have a champion leader: William the Conqueror!

Many lives were in danger
They murdered a stranger
Then they went and threaten the doctor
Concerning his daughter
Well, he was the man for us
Because he didn′t make no fuss
But then he had the place going wild
When he prove Big Belly making child

So darling:

Praise little Eric, rejoice and be glad
We have a better future here in Trinidad
PNM, it ain't have nobody like them
For they have a champion leader: William the Conqueror!

It is undoubtedly that Sparrow is really the greatest calypsonian of all times. There are many others, like Spoiler, Blakie, Duke, Chalkdust, Stalin and many others, too numerous to mention, but Sparrow"s versatility in calypso has distinguished him as the king of kings in calypso.

Typical Sparrow:  witty lyrics, great message, and infectious melody!  Love his nicknames:  Big Brain for Dr. Eric Williams and Big Belly for Albert Gomes.
   The Mighty Sparrow, Calypso Monarch of the World!

Thank you for your kind comment regarding Sparrow. You said it right - “Calypso Monarch of the World” - he surely does well deserve his title!

Never heard this song, but I am glad that Prof. Cynthia Barrow Giles put her students on to this song. It is pleasing to see that calypsonians used their skills from very early and the consciousness that they developed to highlight their views through social commentary.

Sparrow is the greatest calypsonian ever no doubt
