Verse 1

Soca, soca!  Fever, fever!
Feel it, feel it!  Magic!
Music sounding terrific


Carnival in the atmosphere, pan and calypso everywhere
Everybody getting ready for this hectic festivity
Fete for so, roll and wine,
This is celebration time
Carnival in the atmosphere

Verse 2

Uptown, downtown
Come down! Come down
Players, Jammers, feters
Everyone is masqueraders


Carnival in the atmosphere,
Soca and Chutney everywhere
Everybody getting ready for this hectic festivity
Fete for so, roll and wine,
This is celebration time
Carnival in the atmosphere

Verse 3

You hot, I hot; we hot, so what
Tempo! tempo!  Let’s go
We hold the world’s greatest show
