Rum and Coca Cola (1943)

Since the Yankees come to Trinidad,
They have the young girls all goin' mad.
The young girls say they treat'em nice,
And they give them a better price.

They buy rum an' Coca Cola,
Go down to Point Cumana.
Both mother and daughter,
Working for the Yankee dollar.

Ah, look I had a little chick the other day,
But her mother came and took her away,
Herself, her mother and her sisters,
Went in a cab with some soldiers.


Rum and Coca-Cola,
Go down Point Cumana.

They have some aristos in Port of Spain,
I know a lot, but I won't call name,
And in the day they wouldn't give you a right*
But you might see them with the foreigners late at night,


I know a couple who got married one afternoon,
And was to go Miami on their honeymoon,
But the bride run away with a soldier lad,
And the stupid husband went staring mad.


Performed and composed by: Lord Invader (Rupert Westmore Grant)
