Antibalas


I get a story for you

Oya
Kooroo kooroo kere
(Scratchy scratchy small)
Kooroo kooroo kere
Kooroo kooroo kere

A man see two rat go by
So him go and get di trap

But him no go catch di rat
(But he will not catch the rat)
Him no get security
(He has no security)

In him trap him catch a mole
In him trap him catch a snake

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

In him trap him catch a bird
But him no go catch di rat, ra ra

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

So him get bigger trap
And him get a bigger bait
And him get a bigger cage
But him no go catch di rat

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

In him trap him catch a cat
In him trap him catch a dog

In him trap him catch a goat
Me no go catch di rat, ra ra

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

So him get a bigger cage
So di rat he cannot run
And him make this cage so big
And him fit himself inside

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

Dis man go inside him cage
And him lock the door behind

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

And he peek from behind bars
And he see two rats go by

But him no go catch di rat
Him no get security

And him laugh-u ha ha ha
Cause he thinks he dey secure-o

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Him no get security

Rati jump-o kooroo kooroo kere
(The little rat jumps small)
Him too laugh-o ha ha ha ho ho ho hee hee
(He laughs too, ha ha)

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Him no get security

Them two dey laugh-u
Ha ha ha, ho ho ho

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Him no get security

Him no fit catch or get di rati o o
(He cannot catch or have the rat)

Him no fit
(He cannot do it)
Catch di rat
Him no get
(He can't get it)
No security
Him no fit
When you catch two rat, hundred go come
Him no get
When you catch one hundred,
Ten thousand go follow
Him no fit
Kooroo kooroo kere

Kooroo kooroo kere
Him no get
Haaa
