Jamaican Calypso Band - Big Bamboo

Калипсо — афрокарибский музыкальный стиль, образовавшийся на Тринидаде и Тобаго в XX веке, произошёл от западноафриканского кайсо, был популярен в 1950-х годах. Корни калипсо возникли в XIX веке у африканских рабов на сахарных плантациях. Рабам запрещали разговаривать, поэтому они общались через песни

Jamaican Calypso Band - Big Bamboo

From Youtube.com


Sorry about the video quality and didn't catch all the song, but here are the lyrics:

Big Bamboo!

Asked my lady what could I do
To make her happy and to keep her true
Said only one thing I want from you
Is a little bitty piece of that big bamboo

She want the big bamboo, always long
The big bamboo grows so bold and strong
The big bamboo stands so straight and tall
The big bamboo pleases one and all

Gave my lady two coconuts
She said to me this is ok, but
I know you want to be nice to me
But what good are the nuts without that tree

Repeat Chorus

Gave my lady a sugar cane
Sweets to the sweet I did explain
Gave it back to my surprise
Said she liked the flavor but not the size

Repeat Chorus

Gave my lady a banana plant
She said to me this is elegant
It's much to nice to go to waste
Cause it's much too soft to suit my taste

Repeat Chorus

There was a China man named Lip Long Lo
He went and married down in Mexico
His wife divorce him very quick
Because she want bamboo and not chop stick

Repeat Chorus
