LYRICS

Verse 1

Early Panorama Night
Roxanne did appear
In she shortest short jeans pants 
and she T-shirt tie quite up there
maybe you doh know she name
you know d old man
she fadda is the man with the hammer 
living behind the panyard
or maybe the one you know is she mudda
is she have the hottest carnival fever
 
she teach Roxanne the tenor 
teach her every pan
but Roxanne best display
happens wen u give she room and a flag in she hand


Chorus 1

Roxanne
Have the hottest walk and hottest sway
Roxanne
wen you see she best move out the way
Roxanne
doing things with flags thats never seen
Roxanne
walking talking rolling in between
Roxanne 
girl yuh better dan the rest
Roxanne
nobody else cya contest
Roxanne
ay ay
Roxanne
move way
Roxanne have the energy that no one can deny
ROXANNE YUH WIN FLAG WOMAN OF THE YEAR!! 


Verse 2

she not waving for any band
some bands if you please
any band that have a man that can satisfy Roxanne needs
she know how to entertain
her gentlemen friends
she know how to hold the flag 
how to twist and make the flag bend
now Roxanne have tricks unlike any other
if yuh doh believe meh just send yuh brother
she'll give him performance 
she'll make the wave grand
she'll then start to tremble
he'll get o confused doh know if to sit or to stand 


Chorus 2

Roxanne
holding all the man dem inna daze
Roxanne 
have dey stupid faces inna gaze 
Roxanne 
doing things with flag thats never heard
Roxanne
Rolling after each and every word
Roxanne 
Gyul yuh really make tings "hard" 
Roxanne
Bring attention to the yard
Roxanne
ay ay
Roxanne
Move way
Roxanne have performance that no one can deny
ROXANNE YUH WIN FLAG WOMAN OF THE YEAR !!! 

Bridge

Verse 3

A young lady come to town 
come from some south band 
say she hear that Roxanne is 
best flag woman in the land
the challenge was sent around
the gyal set the date
Roxanne grab a 2 X 4 
and stand up by city gate
the southy had all intentions to beat she
Roxanne only pacing waiting to greet she
as she step out the maxi
Roxanne aim for d face
before yuh blink it was 
wood to chest 
forgetting she vex
walk away and say
gyal go back in yuh place


Chorus

Roxanne
this is why we can not find she now
Roxanne 
Even though we searching all around
Roxanne
Police even right up the report
Roxanne
da big fish is one dey never caught
Roxanne 
ban from the savannah grounds
Roxanne 
not on panorama bounds 
Roxanne 
ay ay
Roxanne 
Move way
Roxanne maybe bad and holding each man in mind
 
BUT ROXANNE YUH IS FLAG WOMAN OF THE YEAR
hope i making it clear
ROXANNE YUH IS FLAG WOMAN OF THE YEAR
for this year and nex year
ROXANNE YUH IS FLAG WOMAN OF THE YEAR
