Like a sea of Quicksilver
Flowing thru Port a Spain
It’s Pan again “Pan again”
A sweet song in the air
Flowing from east to west
It is the very best tell the rest
Quick silver quick silver
Quick silver quick silver
Quick silver quick silver
Huh’ we groovin’
Pan flowing in streets
Flowing like lava flow
Volcano on the go yes on the go
Shining in every street
In every different form
Ah sound beyond all sound
Play along
Going up Frederick Street
Coming up Charlotte Street
Round the savannah
Flowing like quicksilver
It moving {oh lord}
Slipping and sliding
The temperature rising
Throughout every alleyway
every roadway
Oh ho ho oh ho ho
A liquid in its form
You know you can’t predict
Which way it sag or drip
(huh) sag or drip
A silver chrome colour
Like Pan in liquid form
Play along
Have people tripping
Dey just keep on chipping
On Monday and Tuesday
Till Ash Wednesday morning
(hey) not moving
Around every corner
Lightning and thunder
It just keep on tripping
(oh god) it grooving
Oh ho ho oh ho ho
Quick silver quick silver quicksilver
We grooving
Quick silver quick silver quick silver
We moving
