Verse 1

Everybody know for carnival season
People outside looking for action;
Ah hanging out around the savannah,
Me and Ana from Palma Mallorca,
Ah invite Ana to we Carnival
To experience Trinbago Bacchanal,
As the Soca music get in she body,
She start to jam me with this melody!


Me gusta El Soca I like it me lova,
But ah, want to Soca
With a little bit ah Salsa,
Giving it a Latin flavor, for the Carnival
Soca y Salsa bacchanal,
Jus Soca me body,
Ah feeling to party!  Baila!

Verse 2

Ah tell meh self she coming again
She carrying on like she still in Spain
Ah want she to have a real good time
To keep Flamingo outta she mind.
We heading St. James and reach by Roxy,
She start to hear ah sweet pan melody,
The woman start acting very jumpy,
Grab meh round meh waist
Have meh feeling groovy!



Verse 3

Ah try meh best to get Ana going
So we could find a next spot wey popin’
She say she doh want to move from Roxy,
And if ah want ah could go and leave she,
You know ah just couldn’t leave
meh woman!
Trying meh best to make she understand,
Baby we have the whole night to party,
She start to jam me the same melody!

Tellison ‘Tello’ Forde is the son of an “Invader” - Cecil “Coye” Forde - and Beryl Isaac. He was born at 67 Rosalino Street in Woodbrook, Trinidad, adjacent to the pan yard of Invaders Steel Orchestra.

That “Tello” was the son of an Invader was proven when Invaders performed at his christening. Father Cecil took the Steeldrum throughout Russia, and was one of the first to introduce Pan in Spain and Morocco in North Africa. Young Tellison followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a member of Invaders Steel Orchestra, and also played tenor pan in New York’s Moods Pan Groove, Pan Rebels and Bramblers USA.

“Tello” enlisted in the US Navy from November 1972 to December 1984, during which time he had the good fortune to serve under the late Commander W.W. Pippenger aboard the USS Brumby DE 1044 which arrived in Chaguaramas, Trinidad in November 1975.

Tellison returned to dedicated service with Sealift Command Department of the Navy for 13 years, always keeping his tenor pan at hand.

He is well known within the steelband community for compositions such as Prophet of Pan and Coye: Pan Religion, among others.
