Gda Music BS: The best type of government (115* d) RE: BS: The best type of government 02 Dec 16


This Caribbean political style belongs above the line but in this case does seem to fit in answering the specific thread question posed. Sparrow`s brilliant "spoof" manifesto does demonstrate just why an electorate should be wary....politicians and promises?, Cheups!

Mighty Sparrow - *If it`s that you want*

TYSOTT SP 1004 (1976)    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-cGP1sOA_M

For the coming era, I decide I go be Prime Minister,
Oh Lord, I going to launch my campaign
My memorandum I must hasten to explain
A revolution, constitution is my plan for this land
If I win election it`s [unclear] I tell you
Anything you want dat you go get
If you want fete it`s endless fete
I will legalise marijuana X and whey whey
I will make every other day a public holiday
And open the treasury to all those who scrunt
But tell me in front if it`s that you want

You want to change the system, all the problems
I`m going to help you solve them
Oh Lord I am prepared to serve you
I`ll do anything that you want me to do
Well my intention is to please man
And woman if I can and to end all the frustration
You believe me if it`s Mas you want Mas you go get
Free food and rum free cigarette
I`ll bring down the age of consent to 7 years
And make Jean in town Minister of Hoes Affairs
Who working go hard don`t mind all who like to scrunt
So tell me in front if it`s that you want

If you don't like to pay tax and if you don't like police
Well you could relax
Oh Lord and if you love bacchanal
No police can`t touch you and make it legal
Satisfaction for the people is my motto
So you know I will make you comfortable believe me
If it`s work you want it`s work till death
If it`s land you want well better yet
I am going to go metric and divide the land
Keep most for myself and to hell with any man
Have an all year season for those who like to hunt
J`ouvert for a month if its that you want

GJ
