Rick Ramdehal – Colors lyrics

(R. Ramdehal)
Carnival people
Put you rags in de air, put you flags in de air, put you hands in de air, get ready to go
Eh, You rags, you flags, you rags, you flags, oh oh oh oh oh
People it's carnival again; Whether it's in sunshine or in rain
Representin' colors from all nations; Ah want to ask you a carnival question
What's de color of you flag? When carnival start, you jumpin' up high, and reachin' de sky
Color of you rag? When you jump and wave, like you jus get saved, and you misbehave
Color of you skin? When you play j'ouvert and a stranger come and mud up you face
Color of you heart? When de music hit you brain and you start to jump up
1, Jump up, 2, Jump up, Jump up and show me now
Show me you colors, Jump up it's carnival time
Just show me you colors, Wave you rags and flags up high
Show me you colors, Start to make a wine
Just show me you colors, De music is yours and mine
The savior made a rainbow for we; It's in the sky for us to see
Go see when colors unite; Them does even shine more bright
Side by side we must learn to be; Live in peace and harmony
It's de spirit of carnival; One love, one heart, one union
What's de color of you blood? When you takin' a drink with a pardner on de side a de road
Color of you sweat? When you takin a juk, and winin' up hard, and you soakin' wet
Color of you mind? When you makin' love, and the skies above, everything's fine
Color of you soul? When you live with love and unity, with everybody, everybody
Jump up and show me now
Show me you colors....
What's de color of you skin? When you play mud mass, you play j'ouvert, and don't care 'bout nothin'
Color of you soul? When you jump and dance, with a million people, in carnival
What's de color of you flag? When you wave it high, it reach de sky, it's carnival time
Color of you rag? On Labor Day, Miami, Caribana, Guyana, Trinidad
Show me you colors....
