Calypso Blues [DVD]-2 Lyrics

Artists: Nat King Cole

Album: The Magic of the Music-2

Sittin' by the ocean
Me heart, she feel so sad
Sittin' by the ocean
Me heart, she feel so sad
Don't got the money
To take me back to Trinidad

Fine calypso woman
She cook me shrimp and rice
Fine calypso woman
She cook me shrimp and rice
These Yankee hot dogs
Don't treat me stomach very nice

In Trinidad, one dollar buy
Papaya juice, banana pie
Six coconut, one female goat
And plenty fish to fill the boat
One bushel bread, one barrel wine
And all the town she come to dine

But here is bad one dollar buy
Cup of coffee, ham on rye
Me throat she sick from necktie
Me feet hurt from shoes
Me pocket full of empty
I got Calypso blues

These Yankee girl give me big scare
Is black the root, is blond the hair
Her eyelash false, her face is paint
And pads are where the girl she ain't

She jitterbug when she should waltz
I even think her name is false
But calypso girl is good a lot
Is what you see, is what she got

Sittin' by the ocean
Me heart, she feel so sad
Sittin' by the ocean
Me heart, she feel so sad
Don't got the money
To take me back to Trinidad
