Sparrow Dead

I hear he had cancer
I hear he had yellow fever
Something in de bladder
And a double dose of leukemia

Two gossip mongers gossipin'
I stand up in a corner listenin'
Before I could ask who dey talking 'bout,
A newspaper boy start to shout

'Hey paper!
'Extra!'
'Read all about it!'
'Paper!'

Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...
('Sparrow dead!')
If you see dis woman
('Sparrow dead!')
Wid a flag in she hand
('Sparrow dead!')
She bang she belly
('Sparrow dead!')
Tellin' everybody
('Sparrow dead!')
Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...

According to Vicki
He was always lookin' sickly
So he went to England
For a belly transplant operation

It's de woman that he foul up begee (?)
If she would walk out on he
Another newsman, got tell she know -
It's the devil that he sell for calypso!

'Hey, paper'
'Extra!'
'Read all about it!'
'Paper!'

Who kill de Sparrow Nobody know
{'Sparrow dead!'}
If you see dis woman
{'Sparrow dead')
With a flag in she hand
('Sparrow dead!')
She bang she belly
{'Sparrow dead')
Tellin' everybody
('Sparrow dead')

Well big mouth Lillian
Say the funeral was on television
She picky head cousin say
'Mmmhumm, de coffin cost twenty thousand
That is why he sell de company
To pay de doctor and de burial fee'
While she talking up scum big Belly Angie
With a paper bawlin' 'Girl, all you ain't see?'

Oh, you read it?
I'm gon' tell you:

Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...
('Sparrow dead!')
If you see de woman
('Sparrow dead!')
Wid a flag in she hand
('Sparrow dead!')
She bang she belly
('Sparrow dead!')
Tellin' everybody
('Sparrow dead!')
Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...

Well dat was excitement
Traffic jam, people block de pavement
Mama look at comments
Everybody done buy de Express

People want to kill Chopalingo
Sparrow just land in Piarco
This time the Evening News paints de town
With another headline by Chester Marong

'Hey!'
'Read all about it!'
'Extra!'

Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...
('Sparrow dead!')
If you see dis woman
('Sparrow dead!')
Wid that flag in she hand
('Sparrow dead!')
She bang she belly
('Sparrow dead!')
Tellin' everybody
('Sparrow dead!')
Who kill de Sparrow? Nobody know...
