Van Dyke Parks – Steelband Music lyrics

We have captains like Filo James and Ellie Manette
Arthur Byer, Neville Jules and Junior Pouchette
Kenrick George, David Edwards I must mention
Anthony Williams and Michigan
They are giants musically
And their names ought to go down in history

The steelband music is really sweet
You get that rhythm in every beat
The steel the grater and the oil drum
Will make you jump up and make you hum
It's fantastic in every sense
The music yet get from these instruments

The dominant chord from the guitar man
The prominent note on the tenor pan
Music in the place
But it's hell to keep up the pace with the bass
