Verse 1

Is not a joker
She’s a hard worker
And she doh clown
When she hold de town
Just like a magnet she very all-inclusive
And she does wash away anything negative
Across de social barrier
No race or class it doesn’t even really matter
Soca, Soca


Because is pleasure for pain
Fire inside summer rain
Pulsating heat
As we signature every street
Speakers vibrating wid jam
Have every dancehall ram-cram
Joy overflow
Is de Soca whey have dem so

Party people, want to leggo
Jammin’ music, from head to toe
Sun come up so dey know
Cause when we jam
Time just come and go
Show dem dat you, really gone clear
Put yuh hands high, up in de air
Nothing cannot compare
Cause when we jam
De vibes could raise yuh hair

Verse 2

Jamming on Bumpers
While all de jumpers
Dey soaking wet
Yuh could take a bet
A conga-line go form and you in de middle
Ya better cock back yuh bow and extend yuh fiddle
You in de heart of bacchanal
You and yuh crew is who controlling de Carnival
More gyal, more gyal




Verse 3

Soca in Moka
Say Panorama
Or Army Fete
You eh call ting yet
Ah done tick off Band-Launching, Lara and UWI
Ah have mih cooler pack and mih juices ready
Ticket for de Boat-cruise done buy
Little money it go really have to multiply
No lie, no lie
