Verse 1
After taking this ride - on the PP 99
She dance the flag woman - the bump and the grind
Innocent and sweet - he pursued with vigor
She swept him off his feet – he never surrender (no)
For 2 whole years – he blaze the trail
When she was 21 – he didn’t decide to fail


He park the PP in she Rainorama
She dance the zigwah – to the manima
He park the PP in she Rainorama
This love of fire – give him the jitter
She bump and wine – jump and grind -in a sexy motion
He move he waist - in a haste – ready for action
So she give the thing - the doctor order – no longer was shy
She sugar bum bum had him bawling out – aye ya ya ya ya ya
He park the PP in she Rainorama
This love of pleasure  – brought three sons & daughter

Verse 2
The car was a right hand drive – majestic and strong
People use to gather round – when they come to town
Don’t talk ’bout them women – always want a ride
But he never went no where – without her at his side
Every step she make – he make one too
Was love at first sight – hear what I am telling you


Verse 3
He say he go park he – PP any place
And if the police come – the wrecker go get a taste
Well out of the blues – this queen bee arrive
She were the one he choose – he use to take her for drive
They drove up and down – and round and round
Till they conceive four children on Diego Martin ground

CalypsonianThe Original Defosto Himself

The Original DeFosto Himself

Winston Scarborough is considered by many to be one of the all-time great composers of steelband ‘panorama tunes.’

A performer artiste himself, 2011 will mark the 33rd year that Trinidad & Tobago’s Winston Scarborough (The Original DeFosto Himself - as he loves to be called) has been singing calypsos.  For him it was an uphill struggle to be recognized by the fraternity and public at large.

Abandoned by both his parents at the young age of 6 months, Scarborough was sent to the Tacarigua Orphanage in east Trinidad where he remained until age 17.  The experience in the orphanage would place an indelible stamp on him.

One of the most important aspects of DeFosto’s work as a calypsonian is the tributes he has paid in song to many of Trinidad & Tobago’s cultural icons; the late Lord Kitchener (calypsonian Aldwyn Roberts) would be one such with whom people are most familiar.
