LYRICS

Verse 1

I hear you grumbling, I hear you complaining
I hear you saying
You doh like wha happening
You saying that the crime
Is really on the incline
And those in power
Only about the dollar
You say things real bad, and life get so hard
The place in a crisis, everything is total madness
Time to fix yuh business
But all you giving is lip service

Chorus 1

Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
What you did lately, to make a better T & T
Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
Be honest with me,
Do you really love your country

Do you work two hours a day
And want eight hours of pay
Do you sit on the job and lime
And start to work when is overtime
So tell me, tell me, I want to know
What’s your contribution for a better Trinbago

Verse 2

We changing government
And seeing no improvement
We love bacchanal
And not serious at all
Every Trinbagonian, is a budding comedian
In the face of tragedy he say God is a Trini
Maestro did not lie
That we love mamaguy
You say you want justice
But vex when they kill a bandit
You preach but doh practice
And that is why the country like this

Chorus 2

Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
What you did lately to make a better T & T
Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
Be honest with me
Do you really love your country

Well you went and you had your fun
Couldn’t care less about protection
Then you left your family high and dry
And hope inspector give you a ‘bligh’
So tell me, tell me I want to know
What’s your contribution for a better Trinbago

Bridge 1

You only calling the radio
And parroting on dem talkshow
Mr. Trinbago - wha you doing,
Look Ms. Trinbago - wha you doing
You sitting down on your smartphone
And wouldn’t come out your comfort zone
Mr. Trinbago - wha you doing,
Look Ms. Trinbago - wha you doing
You want to break the speed limit
And doh want to pay the ticket
Mr. Trinbago - wha you doing,
Look Ms. Trinbago - wha you doing
From de top to bottom
All talk and no action
So tell me, tell me, I want to know
What’s your contribution for a better Trinbago

Verse 3

The things that you talking
They have mih ears hurting
So just wisen up, if you want the slide to stop
You breaking every law,
And is party ever more
And while you feteing,
Is your pocket they picking
To help the nation, you be the solution
But all that you doing
Blogging, texting and messaging
Wishin’ and hopin’
And that and nothing is the same thing

Chorus 3

Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
What you did lately to make a better T & T
Tell me, tell me Mr. Trini
In all honesty do you really love your country

Do you throw garbage in the drain
And when it floods blame the rain
You ain’t clean your lot and you get Zika
And then want to blame the councillor
So tell me, tell me, I want to know
What’s your contribution for a better Trinbago

Bridge 2

Do you fail the breathalyser
And want to blame the officer
Mr. Trinbago - wha you doing,
Look Ms. Trinbago - wha you doing
The holiday is the Monday
You done plan to take the Friday
Mr. Trinbago - wha you doing,
Look Ms. Trinbago - wha you doing
Take your horn like a big man
And doh advantage the woman
