Display (2003)

It’s not unusual to see de people jumpin’
See dem misbehavin’
When is carnival
Dem big flags wavin’
From left to right they swaying
Everybody wavin’ something
Not unusual at all
So when ah reach on de stage
Make yuh flag start to wave
And get in a rave
Start to misbehave
Just jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And display yuhself

Display!
Show mih yuh colours
Display!
Put dem up in de sky
Display!
Ah want to see everybody
Display
Put up something to beautify
Display
Show meh yuh colours
Display
Put them up
Put them up
In the back in the front
Do what de hell yuh want

It not unusual to see
On j’ouvert morning
Old and young partyin’
Yuh cyar stop dem at all
They chippin to de music they playing
When de big truck passin
And havin’ a ball

So when yuh reach on de stage
And yuh flag start to wave
And yuh get in a rave
Start to misbehave
Just jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And display yuhself

Chorus

It not ususual to see monday and tuesday
Rich or poor we playin’ mas in de same band
It doesn’t matter what yuh creed or colour
Everybody jumping up together as one

So when yuh reach on de stage
And yuh flag start to wave
And yuh get in a rave
Start to misbehave
Just jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And display yuhself

Display!
Show mih yuh colours
Display!
Put dem up in de sky
Display!
Ah want to see everybody
Display
Put up something to beautify

In the back in the front
Do what de hell yuh want

Put up yuh... something
Put up yuh something
Put up yuh rag
Show me yuh flag
Put up yuh something
Put up yuh something
Show me yuh rag

So when ah reach on de stage
Make yuh flag start to wave
And ah get in a rave
Start to misbehave
Just jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And jump and wave
And display yuhself
