WHAP COCOYEA
By Mighty Shadow

Mih good partner lost his lover, he looking for obeah man
He want to get back his lover, he looking for obeah man
He went to Sangre Grande, he went up to Sans Souci
There he met ah old badjohn who say he is a obeah man.

[Whe bambadee bam bamban, whe bamabdee bam bambam
Whe bambadee bam bambam, whe bambadee bam]

You have a tabanca, you looking for obeah?
I have the formula to cure your tabanca
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
You treating the lady bad, now she leave you going mad
You come here to look for luck, I know how to do my work
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]

Georgie found himself in trouble up by the obeah man
And poor Georgie start to tremble up by the obeah man
Everything was going fine, the obeah man tell him wine
And poor Georgie couldn't wine so he tied him with a twine.

[Whe bambadee bam bamban, whe bamabdee bam bambam
Whe bambadee bam bambam, whe bambadee bam]

You have a tabanca, you looking for obeah?
I have the formula to cure your tabanca
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
You treating the lady bad, now she leave you going mad
You come here to look for luck, that is why I love mih work
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]

Geogie was in big confusion up by the obeah man
They make Georgie roar like lion up by the obeah man
Then he heard a voice next door, "Georgie, what you come here for?"
"You better get out that yard, that man does beat people bad."

[Whe bambadee bam bamban, whe bamabdee bam bambam
Whe bambadee bam bambam, whe bambadee bam]

You have a tabanca, you looking for obeah?
I have the formula to cure your tabanca
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
You treating the lady bad, now she leave you going mad
You come here to look for luck, that is why I love my work
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]

The two men begin to rumble up by the obeah man
They scramble and then they tumble up by the obeah man
The police jeep coming down, they break down the partition
I heard when the police say, "Just hand me the cocoyea."

[Whe bambadee bam bamban, whe bamabdee bam bambam
Whe bambadee bam bambam, whe bambadee bam]

You have a tabanca, you looking for obeah?
I have the formula to cure your tabanca
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
You treating the lady bad, now she leave you going mad
You come here to look for luck, that is why I love mih work
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]
Whap cocoyea! [oy-oy-oy] Whadap cocoyea! [oy]

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Shadow! Music playing at full volume and I dancing and dancing and dancing and clicking repeat. Oy! This is trance music. 

Whe bambadee bam bamban, whe bamabdee bam bambam
Whe bambadee bam bambam, whe bambadee bam!
