Verse 1
Ah went up in the airport
Traveling on ah Thursday night
Ah check in at the counter
On ah Caribbean Airlines flight
Ah went straight to Pizza Boys
To get something good to eat
Ah order Bake & Saltfish
And ah tea from the casher I meet
She tell me the price
I was short of the amount
Ah turned to her and begged her please
To give me ah discount


Sing for me, if you want discount (4x)
Sing, if you want discount (4x)
You won’t have to pay the full price because
If you just sing for me, discount is yours
Sing (Kenny) (4x)

Verse 2
I know you Kenny J
The one who always sing so sweet
Ah glad you decide to come
Here to have something to eat
I always want to meet you
And now my wish has all come true
My favorite calypsonian
And I always admire you
All the other workers, see them gather round
Hoping and waiting for, me to sing ah song


Verse 3
The Casher had me spellbound
Ah couldn’t even say ah word
Same time I had to dash out
’Cause passengers started to board
I sat down in the airplane
And started writing the event
We reached our destination
Oh the flight was excellent
When ah reached by the Chandlers
And ah spread out on the bed
All the things the casher said Keep ringing in my head
