Hank Snow – Calypso Sweetheart lyrics

It's been many, many day
Me sail away from de isle of Trinidad
Me leave brown skin blue eyed C'lypso sweetheart
Most love, best love me ever had.

In de market place me see her face for very first time
She sell fruit from de top of her head
Me buy fruit with Yankee dime
She love me well, how me know
She love me, she tell me so.

I love her, I don' mean maybe
My brown skin, blue eyed C'lypso baby
When I hear her sing, buy my rum and rice
It's good for you, it's very nice.

Me look around, get big surprise
See brown skin girl with light brown skin
She almost out of the dress she in
Next time she sing me take guitar
Play so hot it catch a fire.

It's been many many day
Me sail away from de isle of Trinidad
Me leave brown skin, blue eyed C'lypso sweetheart
Me heart is heavy, me heart is sad.

Now I'm on my way back to Trinidad isle
To my brown skin love with pretty smile
There I spend all my life
With brown skin, blue eyed C'lypso wife...
