Calypso Music Lyrics by David Rudder
Classic Calypso Lyrics 1987 (2nd Place Calypso Monarch 1987

David Rudder placing 2nd, de-throned by Black Stalin Bun Dem. An epic battle with Stalin coming out at the top.
Rudder humbly accepting defeat and walked out with Stalin holding his hand!






Can you hear a distant drum
Bouncing on the laughter of a melody ( yea, yea)
And does the rhythm tell you , come,come,come
Does your spirit do a dance to this symphony
Does it tell you that your heart is afire
Does it tell you that your pain is a liar
Does it wash away all your unlovely
And are you ready for a brand new discovery

Calypso, calypso (oh oh oh)
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso (oh oh oh)
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Ah say I'm the seed of the Growling Tiger now
I got to sing calypso
Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

It is a living vibration
Rooted deep within my Caribbean belly
Lyrics to make a politician grin
Or turn a woman's body into jelly
It is a sweet soca music calypso
You could ah never refuse it calypso
It make you shake like a Shango now calypso
Why it is you shaking you dont know
That's calypso.

Calypso, calypso
Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Ah say I'm de seed of the Growling Tiger now
I got to sing calypso
Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

I can still hear de Lion roar
Through Greenwich village
While Executor kills them dead at the Rainbow Blue
Lord Invader conquers Berlin but their hearts this time,
And Lord Kitchener make Ole London feel so new
Beginner and Terror Too
Fitzroy Coleman fingers dancing on the fret
And when you think that he through
He aint start nothing yet

Carnigie hall graced by the presence of Sparrow
And when Slinger done with they tail
Hear them signing Sparrow, dont go
Sparrow dont go

Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Ah say I'm de seed of the Tiger now
I got to sing calypso
Wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

I want to rise, I want to rise
From the time the first bamboo come
And we drag it down from the St. Anns hill
From the day the first chantwell lead the band
The real jamming start that day
And we jamming still
Creating rhythm dat could be deadly like Headley
Only this time
The spirit and de melody that sending they soul to the boundary
From the bongo drum to de roll of de tassa
Ever since Europe come and She make massa bassa
We jamming it!

Calypso Music (yea yea)
Calypso, calypso
Calypso Music
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso
Singing wo yea yea yea
wo yea yea yea, wo yea calypso

We gonna sing it in London
we gonna sing it in America
We gonna sing it in Africa
We gonna sing it in Europe
We gonna sing the calypso (repeat)
