Verse 1

De steelband dey suffering
Every year is de same thing
Oh gorm what is happening?
No imagination in de song,
So the arrangers could be strong
Like de standard of de music gone


Whey de Melody gone?
Ah say whey de melody gone?
Panmen suffering for Panorama
You can’t hear a syncopation
Or a sweet dynamic bass line
For when panman
ready to drop deh ‘bomb.’
Ah want to know -
Whey de melody gone,
Whey de melody gone
Just so de melody - it run away.
Whey de melody gone, whey de melody
Tell dem - Tell meh
Whey de melody gone.

Verse 2

Composers and musicians
Help meh out, ah can’t understand
Whey dem sweet chords we used to know?
Pan arrangers working miracles
Keeping pan at a high level
But de melody get lost in de shuffle


Verse 3

So for this year carnival,
Panorama bacchanal,
Is fire in de savannah.
Boogsie Sharpe, All Stars and Renegades,
Silver Stars working de stage,
We’ll be there to support and misbehave.



Whey de melody, whey de melody (repeat)
