Picong Duel [Song]

Mighty Sparrow and Lord Melody

Mighty Sparrow:
Well Melody, come close to me
I will tell you plain and candidly
Don't stop back and smile
Because you have a face like a crocodile!

Lord Melody:
Sparrow, you shouldn't tell me that at all
I mind you when you was small
Many of the nights I used to mash your head
In crossing to go on yuh mother... babadap, babadap!

Mighty Sparrow:

I know you think you are looking sweet
Posing here in you old false teeth
Is a lucky thing your uncle kick out
For you to get the false teeth to put in your mouth!

Lord Melody:
That is all you can say
In every angle and every way?
But the way how you watching at me
I go buss a right hook in your belly!

Mighty Sparrow:
It look as if you want trouble here tonight
Allyuh always looking for fight
I'll tell you this candidly
That is why the jail never empty!

Lord Melody:
You know that I'll be proud and glad
If Sampson and Delilah come back to Trinidad
But when they come, I wouldn't go in the theatre
Because look the jawbone of the ass right here!

Mighty Sparrow:
Well, ladies and gents, to tell you this I'm sure
When the circus was here they had a big uproar
Walking hand in hand, the female chimpanzee
Take Mello for she man!

Lord Melody:
Sparrow, that is a mistake
And in my opinion you give me a headache
This is what I'm forced to say
Is the same mistake you going to make today!

Mighty Sparrow:

Well Melody, you have me in a rage
Wining up on the stage
You feel you are looking cute
But when you finish, take off the dead man suit!

Lord Melody:
You shouldn't tell me that
This is what I am compelled to tell you flat
I hope you doesn't say that I am crack
In a while I'll be wining behind yuh back!

Mighty Sparrow:

Well believe, don't touch mih flesh
I wouldn't say you fresh
Back to back, belly to belly
And I think you are slack!

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Lord Melody and Mighty Sparrow.

"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!
