GET TO HELL OUT!
By The Mighty Sparrow (1965)
I am going to bring back Solomon
Who doh like it complain to the Commission
None of them going to tell me how to run my country
I defy any one of you to dictate for me
I am no dictator, but when I pass an order
Mr. Speaker, this matter must go no further
I have nothing more to say
And it must be done my way
Come on, come on, come on, meeting done for the day.
This land is mine, I am the boss
What I say goes and who vex los'
I say that Solomon will be Minister of External Affairs
If you ent like it, get to hell outta here!
I am going to do what I feel to do
And I couldn't care less who vex or who get blue
And if you want to test how I strong in an election
Leh we bet some money, I giving odds, ten to one
I control all the money that pass through this country
And they envy me for my African safari
I am politically strong, I am the weight of town
Doh argue with me, you can't beat me in John-John.
Who's not with me, is my enemy
And thus will be their destiny
If I say that Solomon will be Minister of External Affairs
And you ent like it, get to hell outta here!
Who the hell is you to jump and quarrel?
Look! PNM is mine - lock, stock and barrel
Who give you the privilege to object?
Pay yuh taxes, shut up and have respect
I am a tower of strength, yes
I am powerful but modest ...unless
I'm forced to be blunt and ruthless
So shut up and don't squawk
This ent no skylark
When I talk, no damn dog bark.
My word is law, so watch yuh case
If yuh slip yuh slide, this is my place
And I say that Solomon will be Minister of External Affairs
And if you ent like it, get to hell outta here!

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.
Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.
Mweh ka allay!
