Verse 1

Suzy Q - Is a steel band baby - I tell you
That girl - steel band crazy
Carnival - She in panorama
Bacchanal - Inside the savannah
From the time - The first steel band strike a note
And the lime - Start to get sweet quote and quote
Suzy Q does start to act like she mad
Suzy Q - Start to get on
Bad - Bad - Bad - Bad
Bad - Bad - Bad - Bad


She jumping high - She wining low
Oh me - Oh my - She on the go
She hold a man - In front the band
She jam ah pan – She bounce ah stand
Suzy Q - she jump up and wave - wave - wave
Suzy Q – start to - misbehave - have - have
And if you wonder who
A girl name Suzy Q

Verse 2

On the stage - Desperadoes jamming
In a rage – Quadrophonics slamming
On The Greens - Men and women feting
Kings and queens - Everyone trendsetting
Melodies - Beautiful calypso beat
Rhapsodies - Scintillating in the heat
Symphonies - Providing a joyful treat
Harmonies - Echoes sounding
Sweet - Sweet - Sweet - Sweet
Sweet - Sweet - Sweet - Sweet


Verse 3

On de Drag - If you hear them sweet pan
Drink a Stag - And enjoy the action
Trinidad - Is the land of steel band
Proud and glad - As a Trinbagonian
Calypso - Music sweet in paradise
High and low - People making sacrifice
Ho - To - To - Vat 19 and coke with ice
The tempo - Have she feeling
Nice - Nice - Nice - Nice
Nice - Nice - Nice – Nice

Edwin “Crazy” Ayoung
Edwin “Crazy” Ayoung

Edwin Ayoung or “Crazy” - born Edwin Ayoung in  1944, on Maraval Road in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad of a Venezuelan mother and Trinidadian father of Chinese descent, was - in his youth - as skilled and competitive in his country’s national pastime of cricket, as he has been now for years as a world-travelled musician, performing artist and composer.


Though dubbed The “Loveable Lunatic of Soca,” Ayoung has time and again not been given his due in his native land, yet remains one of the most commercially successful artists on the international soca scene. An experimentalist, he pioneered the unique musical genre known as Parang Soca and played a leading role in promoting Chutney Soca. Crazy would go on to sing several monster smashes in parang soca, including Muchacha and Homemade Wine.

A brilliant double-entendre artiste at its best - Edwin Ayoung has delighted in pushing the envelope in his humorous and witty manner.  With songs like Paul, Nani Wine and Suck Meh Soucouyant to name but three, this illustrious performer remains a staple in the music world.

He’s been ranked in the top three for Trinidad & Tobago’s annual national calypso monarch competition - his best showing being at position two with Dustbin Cover.  He captured the prestigious Road March title (the ‘tune for the road’ during Carnival Monday and Tuesday) in 1985 with Suck Meh, Soucouyant.

The track featured here—Suzy Q—is dedicated to arranger Leon “Smooth” Edwards and Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra, says Ayoung.  He has also vocalized more material for the season, including Respect Yuh Elder and Pan Wall To Wall.
