Verse 1

Our eyes made for
As is got in this party
Saw you grooving so smoothly
Say you wanna jam with me
I had no clue.
Of the plans you had for me
Bring your body up closer
As your voice softly whispers


I wanna jam with you!
Baby make me yours tonight
I’ll keep it in the groove
Wanna make you feel alright

Bring your body closer!
Come let’s get together
Wanna make you feel alright
Jam your body closer
No need thinking over
Jamming to breaking of daylight

I wanna jam with you!
Baby make me yours tonight
I’ll keep it in the groove
Wanna make you feel alright

Verse 2

You subtle smile
Now have won my heart over
Makes my body just shiver
Emotions taking over.
Though! Some may say
Looks are sometimes deceiving
But the vibes that you’re giving
Totally mesmerizing!



Verse 3

Under your spell
Is the feeling I’m getting
Love the vibes emanating
Body language with rhythm
Thought to myself
What a price oh! What glory
That has taken over me
You’re the rock of this party

Chorus x 2

Tellison ‘Tello’ Forde is the son of an “Invader” - Cecil “Coye” Forde - and Beryl Isaac. He was born at 67 Rosalino Street in Woodbrook, Trinidad, adjacent to the pan yard of Invaders Steel Orchestra.

That “Tello” was the son of an Invader was proven when Invaders performed at his christening. Father Cecil took the Steeldrum throughout Russia, and was one of the first to introduce Pan in Spain and Morocco in North Africa. Young Tellison followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a member of Invaders Steel Orchestra, and also played tenor pan in New York’s Moods Pan Groove, Pan Rebels and Bramblers USA.

“Tello” enlisted in the US Navy from November 1972 to December 1984, during which time he had the good fortune to serve under the late Commander W.W. Pippenger aboard the USS Brumby DE 1044 which arrived in Chaguaramas, Trinidad in November 1975.

Tellison returned to dedicated service with Sealift Command Department of the Navy for 13 years, always keeping his tenor pan at hand.

He is well known within the steelband community for compositions such as Prophet of Pan and Coye: Pan Religion, among others.
