BOTTLE AND SPOON
By Lord Relator

Is music time in any gang
When you see man start to parang
All de instruments does be in tune
But dey doh leave out de bottle & spoon

Chorus:
You see with bottle and spoon
Man does be ringing out real tune
De drum and bass go fall in place
Yuh bottle half with water
Is bacchanal and manslaughter
Sweet music in de place!

I heard it from a steelband man
He name Bradshaw, he's an iron man
Yes, he told me plain, that very soon
Pan men going back to bottle and spoon

Chorus:
You see with bottle and spoon
Man does be ringing out real tune
De drum and bass go fall in place
Yuh bottle half with water
Is bacchanal and manslaughter
Sweet music in de place!

Whiskey bottle or rum bottle
Does sound real nice, when ah man rattle
So de Carnival dis year go be hell
Is a bacchanal, plenty spoon go sell

Chorus:
You see with bottle and spoon
Man does be ringing out real tune
De drum and bass go fall in place
Yuh bottle half with water
Is bacchanal and manslaughter
Sweet music in de place!

If yuh bottle small, yuh must realize
Dat de spoon to use is ah medium size
But if yuh spoon too large, well then is manslaughter
Yuh bottle going to break and throw way de water

Chorus:
You see with bottle & spoon
Man does be ringing out real tune
De drum and bass go fall in place
Yuh bottle half with water
Is bacchanal and manslaughter
Sweet music in de place!

A Note From The Gull

"Sweet music in de place!" Thank you, Lord Relator .

"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!
