LYRICS

Verse 1

Last year for Panorama
Ah meet up with dis Big Mama
She say, “Come in de band
Rasta man, leh we jam
I can't help dancing to dis sweet pan”
De rhythm section was pumping
If you see this gyal how she jumping
Sounds from de band rising up through de air
Dis woman wining like she doh care

Chorus

She say “Come on and jump up with me
Come on and shake yuh body
This year for Panorama
Yuh Jammin’ wit a Big Mama
Come over here my honey
Doh worry ‘bout nobody
Ah doh have no man in dis band
Ah hope yuh do have no woman”
She jumping, she bumping, she whaling, whaling, whaling

Verse 2

She say she from Puerto Rico
And she like to dance to calypso
Jus den a tenor pan started ringing out a melody
Big Mama grab meh by meh hand, an pull meh close to she
I in meh glee wit amazement
See we wining down on de pavement
Hand on she head backing back on de Dread
Ah hold on tight because I en scared

Chorus

Verse 3

De next week was big fete with Army
Well guess who wining in front me
Music was blazing - de place in a rave
Soca artiste rocking de stage
She say she come down Trini to join the festival
And she really want to play mas for Carnival
I ask she “Which band?” When I hear wey she say
Ah went an grab a costume next day

Chorus
