    Lyrics

    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay
    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay

    Sittin' by de ocean, me heart, she feel so sad
    Sittin' by de ocean, me heart, she feel so sad
    Don't got de money
    To take me back to Trinidad

    Fine calypso woman, she cook me shrimp and rice
    Fine calypso woman, she cook me shrimp and rice
    Dese yankee hot dogs
    Don't treat me stomach very nice

    In Trinidad, one dollar buy
    Papaya juice, banana pie
    Six coconut, one female goat
    An' plenty fish to fill de boat

    One bushel bread, one barrel wine
    An' all de town, she come to dine
    But here is bad, one dollar buy
    Cup of coffee, ham on rye

    Me throat she sick from necktie
    Me feet hurt from shoes
    Me pocket full of empty
    I got Calypso blues

    Dese yankee girl give me big scare
    Is black de root, is blonde de hair
    Her eyelash false, her face is paint
    And pads are where de girl she ain't

    She jitterbug when she should waltz
    I even think her name is false
    But calypso girl is good a lot
    Is what you see, is what she got

    Sittin' by de ocean, me heart, she feel so sad
    Sittin' by de ocean, me heart, she feel so sad
    Don't got de money
    To take me back to Trinidad

    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay
    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay

    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay
    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay

    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay
    Wa oo oo, wa oo oo
    Wa oo, wa oo, wa oo, wa ay
    ...
