LYRICS

Verse 1

Sitting down one morning
Have a pan playing
I hear a man singing
Is my next door neighbour
Coming round the corner
If you see de fella
How he jumpin’ up all over
He came to me
And say to me
He want me to play this sweet melody

Chorus

(Ah going back home
Ah want my land
Ah going back home
With my army band) x 2

If you see him jumpin’
Round and round he spinning
Hands in the air waving
So I started playing

Repeat chorus
_________________

Verse 2

Next day is the same thing
As I start practicing
For the season coming
Dis man they call “JK”
Up and down the whole day
Love the calypso thing
Saying he’s the new king
He come back to me
Persistently
So I start to play the same melody

Chorus
