Verse 1

The fans and them
Are sitting in the North and Grand Stand
To support their fav’rite steel band
The bands and them
Are in and outside the Savannah
Final drill by the arranger
With all this melody,
We bound to act crazy
Up in de Savannah, for Panorama
We come in here
To support the band of we choice
Applauding loud the top of we voice.
Yes, ah tell yuh...


(Jump and wave and get on scandalous
(Pan jam for all of us)
Skies are clear pans ring in the air
We all compare
All man come out to brag
For, pan on de drag
Plenty bacchanal
This is Pan Scandal) - repeat

Verse 2

All Trini feel
They know well how to adjudicate
So they done know each steelband fate
They eat and drink
Every kina rum till they tight
For they band they ready to fight
And they know every part,
The music by heart
So is big argument, ‘bout de arrangement
And of course all of dem judges,
Don’t have a clue
And certain bands
They bound to put through.
Yes, ah tell yuh...



Verse 3

The Panorama is a unique special event
And to win that is evident
So is a ritual
They go through towards the stage
Drive the supporters in a rage
Play the tune casually,
Then drop it down slow
Next time little faster,
Then raise the tempo, so
And when yuh see, fans start shouting
When they react
Yuh know that yuh ready and that’s a fact.
Yes, ah tell yuh...
