Calypso ~ Music of the People


I believe, it was back then

Under Prime Minister Erick Williams

Of Trinidad & Tobago

That the government had a problem

Getting a 10-year development plan

Explained to the ordinary people

Then someone had the brilliant idea

To hire a calypsonian to do the job

After inquiring into the plan

And making sure he understood

How it would benefit all of the people

The musician made it into a calypso song

Which became a big hit on the islands


Old Time Calypso
