Verse 1

Rosie say she can’t take it no more
She going away
Rosie say she fed up- she going to the USA
Things too hard, crime is bad
This country is too dangerous
Pack yuh bag, leh we leave
And the world is waiting on us
She mother file for we
She brother go sponsor we
Papers in the embassy
Ah sorry - ah cyar leave here Rosie


Pan in meh blood
Ah love to hear steelband playing
Pan in meh blood
To see pan man ramajay
Pan in meh blood - to jump up in ah band
Pan in meh blood
To help to push ah stand
Pan in meh blood
To hear the ringing of the iron
Pan in meh blood - ah love meh tenor pan
Pan in meh blood
The sweet double second
Pan in meh blood- to hear the guitar strum
Pan in meh blood
The sound of the bass drum
Ah love meh country like pig love mud
Pan in meh blood

Verse 2

Rosie say, every day
In the news is somebody dead
Leh we go
Before dey break down the door
And kill we instead
Ah frighten every kid on the block
Now toting ah gun
If we stay very soon to survive
We have to get one
The law doing nothing
Only new car they driving
Bandits ain’t fraid nobody
Broad daylight is kidnap and robbery




Pan in meh blood
Ah cyar leave this country
Pan in meh blood
Steelband have meh bazodee
Pan in meh blood
When ah hear pan melody
Ah does start to dance in ecstasy
Pan in meh blood - Spree Simon and Coker
Pan in meh blood
Boogsie, Bradley, Kitchener
Pan in meh blood
Devote time to de culture
So we could have we sweet pan forever

Verse 3

Rosie girl - long ago
Every street steelband coming down
Carnival - yuh walk
The whole town looking for one
DJ hog, every truck, every block
Every street corner
To hear pan every year
Yuh must wait for Panorama
The steelband here dying
Government doing nothing
If I desert my country
Then come back
Steelband could be history

Irvin Blackman began his singing career professionally in 1990, with his first song a hit – Form A Line And Wine.  He is a retired Chief Petty officer in the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard.

Blackman was a finalist in the National Soca Monarch finals on five occasions. In 1999 his first song for the national instrument was Ting Tang, played by 26 steelbands overall in the Panorama competition that year. Ting Tang also won the Pan road march competition which was introduced by Pan Trinbago for steel bands only.

Success followed Blackman in 2000 with Tenor Fever - again another popular number for Panorama, with 18 steelbands taking it to the competition. Ah Hook was a hot favorite for 2005, copping an award at the International Soca Monarch Awards for the most Humorous Song for 2005. The artist also claimed that award again in 2007 with He Lie. 

In 2013 “Blackie” released Musical Wind for the Panorama season.  He’s back for 2014 with Pan In Meh Blood composed by Carl Caton and produced and arranged by Caton and Leston Paul.
