Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Some of this really happened...
Just ask any man who was jumping up in a Steelband
And though he got lucky
But with tears in his eyes on Ash - Wednesday had to ask.....
Trini-gal why …. why
You acting so crazy After Carnival
Please tell me why …
Why you playing you don’t know me After Carnival
After.... carnival done
And we had "all we" fun
Yuh running to church to pray
Bunning candle night and day
Begging for mercy After Carnival
Holy Father please forgive me ..... After Carnival
Is them who make me After Carnival
Shake "meh" booty After Carnival
Tell me why…. (Trini Gal)..
Tell me why….. Tell me why Ah want the truth doh lie….
When.... "we were" in the band
Calling me yuh outside man
You weren’t feeling shame
Now ah can't even call your by yuh name
When U see me coming After Carnival
Why U take of running After Carnival
Hiding from me … After carnival
Like if you owe me money .....
Tell me why…..Trini Gal
Tell me why ...Tell me why
Ah, want the truth doh lie.

**Carray ..... A dance move similar to "Twerking"
