FATHER CHRISTMAS
By Mighty Spoiler

Since I small, I always believe
Father Christmas does come on Christmas Eve
Since I small, I always believe
Father Christmas does come on Christmas Eve
When I was small I used to hang up my stocking
So much ah toys I used to get Christmas morning
Now I big like a man-o-war
Last year I hang up a rice bag in front mih door...oh mih darling!

Chorus:
Christmas morning I wake up early
To see what Father Christmas put for me
He put a police in a short pants
With a warrant for me for wife maintenance...oh lord!

You can bet the Federal Flag
Greediness make me hang up the rice bag
Why you think I do that?
Because, I thought I would have a thing on Santa Claus
That when he passing with the reindeer
And he spot mih rice bag, he would declare
Spoiler is hungry, leh we put a couple roast fig in dey for he... never happen!

Chorus:
The Christmas morning I wake up early
To see what Father Christmas put for me
He put a police like Jack Palance
With a warrant for me for wife maintenance...oh lord!

I never see more in my life
How the man know that I doesn't mind my wife?
Right away I start to study
I decided, oh yes, to make inquiry
I tie the police in the kitchen
I run down the road and I asking, I asking
I started to shake when I hear
Mother New Year's give him the rake...oh mih darling!

Chorus:
Christmas morning I wake up early
To see what Father Christmas bring for me
He bring a police like Jack Palance
With a warrant for me for wife maintenance...oh lord!

Christmas could be ten times a year, not me!
Again to hang nothing anywhere
Fus I fraid that this Santa Claus
Next time he might put in a couple gun slingers
So when people making preparation
Spoiler will come to one conclusion
Let mih house stop so
I wouldn't hang up a balloon in front mih door...just because

Chorus:

Christmas morning I wake up early
To see what Father Christmas put for me
He bring a police in a short pants
With a warrant for me for wife maintenance...

Yes, it is the Spoiler. Ah wanna fall

A Note From The Gull


Thank you, Mighty Spoiler!

"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!

Here are the missing lyrics in the song:

You can bet the Federal Flag
Greediness make me hang up the rice bag

and later on the line is

Christmas could be ten times a year, not me!
Again to hang nothing anywhere
Fus ah fraid dat dis santa claus
Next time he might put in a couple gun slingers

Thanks for the lyrics

There's a cover of this song by David Rudder and he sings it nice and slow. He sings something like: "You can bet the Federal Flag,
Queen Elizabeth didn't hang up the rice bag". I guess that is probably right - fits with the Federal Flag because she was head of state of the West Indies Federation, and fits with the line that follows ("Why you think that I do that?").

Great song and great blog! Much more to explore.
