So is ham and jam, soca parang, is Santa Clause with Masqueraders.
Because 'we catch catch catch ah vaps' (4)
Adlib: Christmas Morning, Carnival evening,
All in Boxing day straight into Jouvert.
Now d carnival, Christmas thing have me going mad
But I does be relll glad. Confusion and fusion
I went to d grocery, to buy ah ham and turkey, ah parang band was playing, so I stand up listening
But like I start hallucinating, cause on the box base was the midnight robber, next to him was the Dame Lorraine and damn I wanted to be her midnight lover, the blue devil playing cuatro, and all 5 of them in sync so is cuatro cinco. I turn and see the sailor boy at bay with the maracas, and last was a Veni named Maria from Caracas.
