Verse 1

This is the age – of Woman power
Women rising – and taking over
We must be proud – three cheers for Kamla!
She is the greatest – Prime Minister
For years this country – was plagued by crime
People dying – all the time
But this great lady – created history
By declaring ah State of Emergency


To save the country – was necessary
We taking we country back - we taking we country back
Efficient police – and the army
We taking we country back - we taking we country back
Criminals beware – we no longer fear
Is time to give up - this nonsense must stop
The right decision – only solution
Was made – by this special woman
We taking we country back - we taking we country back
We taking we country back - we taking we country back

Verse 2

From since the days – of Eric Williams
Men were chosen – to lead this nation
But they all fail – to do the right thing
To stop the crime rate – from escalating
With men in power – none had the answer
Is Sister Kamla – show them the way
My special lady – your contribution
Will remain – forever – in this twin-island


Verse 3

Kamla you are – a true example
Of what leaders should be – to their people
You are so strong - with guts and vigor
Your strength and power – is like no other
The way you handle – the situation
Is so fantastic – the way to go
You are an angel – sent by the master
I salute you my dear – Madame Minister

Calypso Crazy

Crazy - born Edwin Ayoung in  1944, on Maraval Road in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad of a Venezuelan mother and Trinidadian father of Chinese descent, was - in his youth - as skilled and competitive in his country’s national pastime of cricket, as he has been now for years as a world-travelled musician, performing artiste and composer.

Though dubbed The “Loveable Lunatic of Soca,” Ayoung has time and again not been given his due in his native land, yet remains one of the most commercially successful artists on the international soca scene. An experimentalist, he pioneered the unique musical genre known as Parang Soca and played a leading role in promoting Chutney Soca. Crazy would go on to sing several monster smashes in parang soca, including Muchacha and Homemade Wine.

A brilliant double-entendre artiste at its best -Edwin Ayoung has delighted in pushing the envelope in his humorous and witty manner.  With songs like Paul, Nani Wine and Suck Meh Soucouyant to name but three, this illustrious performer remains a staple in the music world.

He’s been ranked in the top three for Trinidad & Tobago’s annual national calypso monarch competition - his best showing being at position two with Dustbin Cover.  He captured the prestigious Road March title (the ‘tune for the road’ during Carnival Monday and Tuesday) in 1985 with Suck Meh, Soucouyant.

This hard-working hit-making machine and best-selling soca artiste over the years has stayed in the public consciousness, serving up such ditties and classics as Drive It, Dis Is How and Coldsweat.

On the pan scene, Crazy sang one of the most popular ‘pan tunes’ in years; written by Amrit Samaroo, 2007’s Band From Space captured the imagination of the steelband music community worldwide, becoming the panorama selection for some, and part of the overall repertoire for others.

Edwin Ayoung makes his home in California on the USA’s west coast, with frequent trips back to the land of his birth.
