Ah cyah wait doh
Ah cyah wait to jam
Gim meh room so
Gim meh room to jam
Ah cyah wait doh
Ah cyah wait to jam
Jam, Jam, Jam, Jam, Jam,
Jam, Jam, Jam, Jam.

Verse 1

Ah was lying down in meh bed
Notes start jumping round in meh head
So ah write a song
Can’t go into de panyard
Stand by my window ah feeling sad
everything seems wrong
Crime get so out of hand
that we even had curfew
Ah want to hear it from the band
And ah don't know what to do
Steelpan music inside of my head
Cyah go out and ah feeling weird
When ah cyah be with meh steelband
Ah does get on dread,
Really dread boy, really dread,
Really dread boy, really dread,
Really dread, really dread, dread, dread, dread, dread.


Ah hundred giants cyah even block me
(When ah want to play Pan)
Nothing out there could even stop me
(When ah want to play Pan)
Ah hundred giants cyah even block me
(When ah want to play Pan)
Nothing out there could even stop me
(Reach in yard, reach in yard)

When de players come together
It does be much stronger
Right now I’m at home
Ah cyah do this alone
Ah cyah wait to go in de pan yard
De curfew thing have meh really sad
Jam de SOE and de curfew with
Pan, pan, pan, pan pan

Verse 2

Meh good friend reach up by me
With he tenor pan and ready
More players start to come
Everybody feeling hungry
To jam this Pan melody
They really love this song
Now we have an orchestra
Right inside meh living room
and we sounding sweeter
As players perfect de tune
Now is a celebration
We have sweet music going down
Everybody feeling de vibe
when they start to jam
(Leh we jam now), leh we jam
(Leh we jam now), leh we jam
Leh we jam, leh we jam,
Jam, jam, jam, jam.



Verse 3

Curfew done and we feeling glad
We could take it to de pan yard
Now players gone insane
De music jamming so hard
Everybody saying it bad
It sweet like sugar cane
De Bass section breakaway
Fire blazing on de drum
While de tenors ramajay
And de guitars start to strum
Ironmen intense - de rhythm
And so did to conga drum
Fire in de hole - this one here could blow like ah bomb
(Drop de bomb song), Like ah bomb,
(Drop de bomb song), Like ah bomb
Like ah bomb, Like ah bomb,
bomb, bomb bomb, bomb.
