Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

To many of us from Trinidad and the Eastern Caribbean, who were around in the latter half of the last century,the calypsoes of the late Grand Master Lord Kitchener played an important role in the soundtracks of our lives.

In every decade from the forties to the turn of the century there were hits by Kitch.

Here from 1969 is one of those hits.

From the album "King of The Road, arranged by the famed big band and steelband arranger Clive Bradley, here is "J'ouvert 69"

Please!  Could Somebody help me out with this Kitch`s calypso.

I don`t know the name, but the first lines goes like this;

"If your Mother and your wife are drowning, tell me which one of them would you be saving"?

Then it goes on to " You can always get another wife but you can never get another Mother in your life"

Thank You
