SOCA SANTA
By Machel Montano
Featuring Daisy Voisin and band

Santa leave the North Pole and come down to Trinidad
He say it too cold in the North Pole
So he couldn't stay, he come down right away
To have some fun in this land of sea and sun.

Chorus:
Soca Santa don't leave your bag of toys
Don't forget you have to share it with every girl and boy
Soca Santa don't want to ride no sleigh
In a big time Toyota gallivanting all day...Woohoo!
Soca Santa! Soca Santa!

Santa say he intend to have a real good Christmas this time
And the place to be is this country
All them lovely chicks, parang music sick
And he taste the food, Trini woman does cook real good.

Chorus:
Soca Santa don't leave your bag of toys
Don't forget you have to share it with every girl and boy
Soca Santa don't want to ride no sleigh
In a big time Toyota gallivanting all day
Soca Santa! Soca Santa!

Santa walking around in sneakers and jersey and jeans
Looking to see where have party
And he trying to storm 'cause that is the norm
He come out to play so he feteing Trinidadian way

Chorus:
Soca Santa don't leave your bag of toys
Don't forget you have to share it with every girl and boy
Soca Santa don't want to ride no sleigh
In a big time Toyota gallivanting all day
Arriba! Wooohooo! Woo! Woo!

Oyyyyyye! Arriba!

Hurray, Hurrah!
Papa Noel deja de Polo Norte
Viene a la Trinidad para salir en el sol.
Hurray, Hurrah!
Si ----- Santa
es bien que no olvidar, tiene que repartir
Hurray Hurrah!
Papa Noel deja de Polo Norte
Viene a la Trinidad para salir en el sol
Hurray, Hurrah!
Si ---- Santa

Ayee! Ayee! Uupah! Arriba! Gaita! Gaita!
Arriba! Uupah! Woohoo!

Soca Santa! Soca Santa!

Santa jump on stage and snatch the mike
From the lead singer hand
He wants us to join in the chorus
Keep the Christmas cheer going through the year
Then he kick and he say, "In Trinbago I intend to stay."

Chorus:
Soca Santa don't leave your bag of toys
Don't forget you have to share it with every girl and boy
Soca Santa don't want to ride no sleigh
In a big time Toyota gallivanting all day...Woohoo!
Soca Santa! Soca Santa!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas everybody Woohooo!

Soca Santa don't want to ride no sleigh
In a big time Toyota gallivanting all day

Ayee! Ayee! Arriba!!
Oyeeeee!.....

A Note From The Gull
Thank you Machel and Daisy! This is joy, joy, joy...nothing but. If anyone can help with the Spanish, I'd be really grateful. I could not recognise some of the words.

"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!
