Mighty Sparrow - Grampa's Advice (With Lyrics)

Sparrow is a teacher for unsuspecting women. He explains in great detail how some men think.



Two women in my life, one of them got to be my wife
Two women in my life, one of them got to be my wife,
Betty love me but I love Myra, gone to explain to grandpapa,
What should I do, who should I wed, Grampa watched me and the he said,
The one who you love never marry to she,
Is the one who love you, she go make you happy
Keep the one that you love on the side all the while
But the one who love you take her straight down the aisle

Grandpapa you making fun, that is easier said than done
How I go leave my sweetheart on top the shelf and marry somebody else
All you young boys ain't got no sense, I telling you from experience
A woman must love you more than you love she, before you jump in matrimony
The one that you love never marry to she,
Is the one who love you, she go make you happy
Keep the one that you love on the side all the while
But the one who love you take her straight down the aisle

She pretty and nice and fat, but you can't marry she just for that
Nine times out of ten is true, the one you love is not in love with you
So when you have a sure thing, that is where you must put your ring
If you go get married you got to be smart, boy use your head and not you heart
The one who you love never marry to she,
Is the one who love you, she go make you happy
Keep the one that you love on the side all the while
And the one who love you take her straight down the aisle

I didn't listen to what grampa say, that is why I suffering so today
Myra cheat me until I blind, seven children and none ain't mine
Every time I open me mouth, she and she mumma put me out
Now I believe what me grandpapa said, I can't forget it until I dead
The one that you love never marry to she,
Is the one who love you, she go make you happy
Keep the one that you love on the shelf all the while
But the one who love you take her straight down the aisle

A tribute to THE MIGHTY SPARROW is a very good idea!

There is only one Birdie, he always give a good show, his music is memorable.

Noted poet Mervyn Taylor speaks on Sparrow

Claudie you hear chune...

 

Bugs: The lyrics below express the introspective and bluesy feel of calypso that is not too often recorded. But it is one of my favorite colors of the music.

My favorite Sparrow Calypso is Children...Children today I find them amusing, but some people say they find them so confuding...etc). Very witty, great phrasing and excellent lyrics. Once I met him in Toronto where he sang at a show and told him this was my favorite and if he could sing it and at that time he said to me ...Boy de band would not know how to play dah tune...He is the Greatest.
