Yes, 'Gouti in the woods, 'Gouti in mih yard
We have male and female 'Gouti in Trinidad
'Gouti in the woods, 'Gouti in mih yard
We have male and female 'Gouti in Trinidad.
When a 'Gouti is running to hide
He shove his head in a hole, leave his body outside
Talk 'bout 'Gouti in making accusations
About certain calypsonians
I ain't no angel, so you don't need glasses to see
If I am a 'Gouti, they never catch me.
Are you the Panther? Not, not me.
Are you the Tiger No, not me.
Are you Attila? No, not me.
Your name is Lord Pretender? Yes, that's me!
Yes, they got some female 'Gouti at large
Their real hiding hole is Carenage
Susie, she head the list
And with Sam, she is the mistress
Black-mouth Norma and St. James Pearl
They are the best 'Gouti in the world
They can tour Martinique, France or Italy
No one can beat them in playing 'Gouti.
Is your name Elsie? No, not me.
Are you Dorothy? No, not me.
Are you Milly? No, not me.
Well, your name is Susie? Yes, that's me!
Yes, they got some 'Gouti in Port of Spain
I am ashamed, but I must call some of their name
Their features looking innocent
You can find some around the calypso tent
They so brass face, shameless and bold
They shove their head in any kind of hole
To accuse them, you'll never give that a thought
And when you catch them, they will tell you, "Well caught!"
Are you the Terror? No, not me
Are you ----------? No, not me.
Are you Beginner? No, not me.
Your name is Lord Kitchener? Yes, that's me!
Are you Alfred? No, not me.
Are you Wilfred? No, not me.
Are you Dondred? No, not me.
Your name is George dead? That's me!

A Note From The Gull
Thank you, Lord Invader.
"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!
