LYRICS

Verse 1

Lips pursed - Keshorn Walcott took his cue
Curve of hush descended as -
Mighty javelin flew
Greats from Ukraine Norway and Finland smelt fear
Memories of Hercules - hurling olive spear
84.58 was a display of strength and speed
From a little island child
Very few took heed
Big Ben chimed and out of de blue
The whole of London soil shook
Aug the 11th etched
In La Trinity’s history book

Chorus 1

Keshorn - golden boy of T&T from Toco
Keshorn -
started pelting coconut and mango
Keshorn - running up
Taking aim with precision
Keshorn - 2012 Olympics he was the man
Citizens come out to share
In the javelin jubilation
Fitting with the 50th
anniversary celebration
Keshorn - yes he shock the world
Keshorn - he was on a roll
Keshorn - a gem to behold
Keshorn - hit de pot of gold

Verse 2

Sean Roach, Ishmael Lopez John Andalcio
Done planning for Olympics
In Rio de Janeiro
Anil Roberts and Hasley Crawford
Hail his feat
Kudos galore as social media
Tweet tweet tweet
Endy - Keshorn Daddy -
De man felt like a king
After his son from juniors
Continue winning
Beverly Walcott
Received her bouquet with joy
Confirming that Keshorn’s victory
Was not a ploy

Chorus

Verse 3

Lady Kamla call him a beacon of light
Humble home at 3 rocks morphs
Into tourist site
Boss lady give him an aeroplane,
House and holiday
That Monday August de 13th
Trinbagoians came to play
Editorials celebrate
End to a thirty-six-year drought
Motorcades with Olympians
Trek from north to south
Keshorn gave out hampers
To all his fans in Diego Martin
Who sang de national anthem
As flood had them scurrying

Edwin Ayoung:  Crazy - born Edwin Ayoung in  1944, on Maraval Road in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad of a Venezuelan mother and Trinidadian father of Chinese descent, was - in his youth - as skilled and competitive in his country’s national pastime of cricket, as he has been now for years as a world-travelled musician, performing artist and composer.

Though dubbed The “Loveable Lunatic of Soca,” Ayoung has time and again not been given his due in his native land, yet remains one of the most commercially successful artists on the international soca scene. An experimentalist, he pioneered the unique musical genre known as Parang Soca and played a leading role in promoting Chutney Soca. Crazy would go on to sing several monster smashes in parang soca, including Muchacha and Homemade Wine.

A brilliant double-entendre artiste at its best - Edwin Ayoung has delighted in pushing the envelope in his humorous and witty manner.  With songs like Paul, Nani Wine and Suck Meh Soucouyant to name but three, this illustrious performer remains a staple in the music world.

He’s been ranked in the top three for Trinidad & Tobago’s annual national calypso monarch competition - his best showing being at position two with Dustbin Cover.  He captured the prestigious Road March title (the ‘tune for the road’ during Carnival Monday and Tuesday) in 1985 with Suck Meh, Soucouyant.

This hard-working hit-making machine and best-selling soca artiste over the years has stayed in the public consciousness, serving up such ditties and classics as Drive It, Dis Is How and Cold Sweat.

On the pan scene, Crazy sang one of the most popular ‘pan tunes’ in years; written by Amrit Samaroo, 2007’s Band From Space captured the imagination of the steelband music community worldwide, becoming the panorama selection for some, and part of the overall repertoire for others.

Edwin Ayoung makes his home in California on the USA’s west coast, with frequent trips back to the land of his birth.
