de mighty sparrow
king of calypso
who we listen to
now in me head
so one warning
you wan burglarize de house an' ting
we keep a dog here
who is armed to de teeth
wid teeth

i'm thinking
can't keep that voice going
there should be national have a conversation with a stranger day
imagine how much good it would do
hello how are you
and then you find out who they are
the way conversation is meant to be
without purpose
on purpose
not a pick up
not a come on
not a nothing
just a conversation between strangers
when was the last time you had one
join in
why don't you
and please
mind the gap
