WOMAN IN PAN
Mark E. Loquan


VERSE
One could say women contribute literacy
To the whole evolution in pan
Like the case of our women  conductors
And adjudicators, dey continue to set our standards
Pan arrangers, music teachers...........woman in pan

VERSE
One could trace back from Girl Pat Steel Orchestra
Henley teach dem de "Tennessee Waltz"
Playing soft in a house down in Newtown
With pan mauvais langue,
dey still  earned a good reputation
Tour Guyana, then Jamaica...........woman in Pan

LONG CHORUS
Ah want to say, play woman play
Ya help us to reach here today
And we all recognize,
there's so much we all need to strive...for
Yeh woman we want more
Yeh woman, show we more
Aah woman, play some more

VERSE
Gradually pan gain respectability
Women working with pan quietly
In de east McIntosh have a school
Doh even try to fool,
Pierre or Merle Albino de Coteau
Creative woman, Doctor Osborne.......woman in Pan

VERSE
Pat Bishop, has earned greatest reverence
Well for you there is no fair tribute
With repute and musicology
'Radoes make history,
so did Dawn Batson with Pamberi
Oh what a grand contribution............woman in pan

SHORT CHORUS
Ah want to say, play woman play
Ya help us to reach here today
And we all recognize,
there's so much we all need to strive...for
Yeh woman play some more

BRIDGE
Nowadays is no big deal to see woman in pan
Ramajay or even playing in dem big band
Leh we break away from all a dis inhibition, woman
New generation, revolution in pan

INTERLUDE

VERSE
Some a dem could make men feel a little shame
Ray Steele have an appropriate name
Desperadoes Ursula Tudor
Bring back Huggins for sure,
call  Natasha Joseph for encore
Well de Layne twins, both  soloing.......woman in pan

VERSE
Now ah bounce up dis tourist from Germany
She say she want to play pan desperately
Like she hook on dis sweet guitar pan
With a beer in she hand,
and till two a.m. every  morn..ing
Make way for she,
'cause now we see...woman in pan

CHORUS
Ah want to say,  play woman play
Ya help us to reach here today
And we all recognize,
there's so much we all need to strive...for
Yeh wo....man,   we want more
Yeh woman,  show we more
Aah woman, play some more
