Sweet and Dandy
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


Etty in the room a cry
Mama say she must wipe her eye
Papa say she no fi foolish
Like she never been to school at all
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night

Johnson in the room afret
Uncle say he must hold up him head
Aunty say she no fi foolish
Like a no time fi him wedding day
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night
One pound ten for the wedding cake
Plenty bottle of cola wine
All the people them dress up in a white
Fi go eat out Johnson wedding cake
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night, yeah, yeah

Etty in the room a cry
Mama say she must wipe her eye
Papa say she no fi foolish
Like she never been to school at all
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night

Johnson in the room afret
Uncle say he must hold up him head
Aunty say she no fi foolish
Like a no time fi him wedding day
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night
One pound ten for the wedding cake
Plenty bottle of cola wine
All the people them dress up in a white
Fi go eat out Johnson wedding cake
It is no wonder
It's a perfect pander
While they were dancing in that bar room last night, yeah, yeah

Yeah there was sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Oh, sweet and dandy
There was sweet and dandy
There was sweet and dandy
There was sweet and dandy
There was sweet and dandy
There was sweet and dandy, sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy, sweet and dandy

Etty in the room a cry
Mama say she must wipe her eye
Papa say she no fi foolish
Like she…


I thought it was 'it's a perfect ponder' for the last 50 years. IT ISN'T??? I always thought it sounded so hilariously upper crust, to say 'it's a perfect ponder' when I was puzzled by something.

Alright
Yep-a, Etty in a room a cry
My mama say she must wipe her eye
Papa say, "She no fi foolish
Like she never been to school at all!"
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
Johnson in the room a-fret
Uncle say he must hold up him head
Aunty say, "She no fi foolish
Like there's no time for his wedding day!"
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
One pound 10 for the wedding cake
And plenty bottle of cola wine
All the people them dress up in a white
Fi go eat out Johnson wedding cake
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
Yep-a, Etty in a room a cry
Mama say she must wipe her eye
Papa say, "She no fi foolish
Like she never been to school at all!"
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
Johnson in the room a-fret
Uncle say he must hold up him head
Aunty say, "She no fi foolish
Like there's no time for his wedding day!"
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
One pound 10 for the wedding cake
And plenty bottle of cola wine
All the people them dress up in a white
Fi go eat out Johnson wedding cake
It is no wonder
It's a perfect ponder
While they were dancing
In that bar room last night
Well, but they were sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy
Oh, and dandy
It was sweet and dandy
It was sweet and dandy
It was sweet and dandy
It was sweet and dandy
It was sweet and dandy
Sweet and dandy

As a Native American from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming I have alot of appreciation for these Jamaican Legends "Toots and the Maytals"..They possess Immense energetic music aswell as in their soul they are kings of kings From one Native to Another ...✌

@Ralph Dratman we would sneak into the best room at my friends house and play her dads records and one of us was on the lookout duty for her parents coming back from Church because believe me if we got caught we’d all be sorry 😂😂

@cece221091 Beautiful recollection!

I love this. This takes me back to blown glass fish and a huge punch bowl n glasses on the bar next to the pineapple shaped ice cube box, whilst sitting on a sofa that’s in the best room that was covered in plastic and the walls all decked out with 3D God pictures. 😂😂😂

On your way, Toots. Fair sailing ahead, across the universe.
