DE PARANG NOW START
By Scrunter

De parang now start, de parang now start
And we going nonstop we not warming up
Eating, drinking, having a good time
Dancing, prancing, having a good time

Ah know everybody planning
For this Christmas season coming
Ah know everybody planning
For this Christmas season, we coming
Dem boys up in Lopinot, Maracas and Sando
Dey ready to start de show
Once yuh say de word Go, de word Go
So come leh we parang, people
Come leh we have fun
Come leh we parang, allyuh
Dis is de season... parang, parang, parang!

De parang now start, de parang now start
De parang now start, de parang now start
And we going nonstop, we not warming up
Eating, drinking, having a good time
Dancing, prancing, having a good time

Is Christmas time again, they shouting
Some hanging curtain, some painting
Is Christmas time again, they shouting
Some hanging curtain, some painting
Children hanging up stocking, looking for Santa
While de parents listening to the serenaders, serenaders

So come leh we parang, allyuh
Come leh we have fun
Come leh we parang, allyuh
Dis is de season... parang, parang, parang!

De parang now start, de parang now start
And we going nonstop, we not warming up
De parang now start, de parang now start
And we going nonstop, we not warming up
Eating, drinking, having a good time
Dancing, prancing, having a good time

Each and everyone preparing
Some bussin' bamboo, some baking
Each and everyone preparing
Some bussin' bamboo, some baking
Some making punch a crema, sorrel and ginger beer
Everybody celebrate this occasion each year, each year
So come leh we parang, allyuh
Come leh we have fun
Come leh we parang, allyuh
Dis is de season... parang, parang, parang!

De parang now start, de parang now start
De parang now start, de parang now start
And we going nonstop, we not warming up
Eating, drinking, having a good time
Dancing, prancing, having a good time

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Scrunter!

"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!

Bagolife,
Thanks for visiting. Lyrics for several other Christmas songs can be found on this blog but I don't know if you have particular songs in mind. Have you checked the index. Look under Christmas Music. If you cannot find what you are looking for send me another comment and I will see what I can do to help. All the best for the Christmas Season!
Blessings
