Wear something red, was the popular cry
And like the pavements and streets
They were filled with envy
Because by morning light
They were covered with our blood
I tell you, not one soul here escaped the frenzy
You know sometimes you're gambling king
And wild is the joker
And sometimes the sight of the moon
Just riles up the lost, the hungry, the mad
These are the troubled times
That we have down in Trinidad

Because under the crescent moon
And above the bloody asphalt
Strange dogs were barking, deep in the night
Under the crescent moon
I say the drums were silent
But somehow the rhythm continued
Oh what a sight

On the night of the day
It was the night of the day
It was the night that they say
That the martyrs died

Fame, yes we’re famous as hell
Why don’t you know we’re a star
At long last we have made it
Star like that star in the moon
Shining over the tomb
Dance the moon, you can’t frai

Come on, dance brother dance
For death is your drummer
Prance sister prance, your future at stake
Jump high jump low, but this Hoosay will take place

Because under the crescent moon
And above the bloody asphalt
Strange dogs were barking deep in the night
Under the crescent moon
I say the drums were silent
But somehow the rhythm continued
Oh what ah sight

On the night of the day
It was the night of the day
It was the night that they say
That the martyrs died

The power and the glory is so close at hand
But the beast he was lurking
For he too sits in the wings, in the wing
So when we searched for the moon
All we saw were the vultures
But then a chosen people never worry bout these things,
Bout these things

So the roll of the tassa
Began to sound like the rhythm of bullets
And the thundering boom bass
Well that was a bomb, was ah bomb
In this Moslem time
When the Hosay is number one

Ah say, under the crescent moon
And above the bloody asphalt
Brother man strange dogs were barking deep in the night
Under the crescent moon
I say the drums were silent
But somehow the rhythm continued
Uh what a sight

On the night of the day
It was the night of the day
It was the night that they say
That the martyrs died

Not in this house, not in this Garden of Eden
Oh how we danced to the beat of this lovely lie, lovely life
Until a man opened a door
And showed us our other side
And all our Mecca’d illusions
Walked right on by
Now Trini know what is uzi diplomacy
Now Trini know what is SLR love
In ah these troubled times
Under the stars above

Under the crescent moon
And above the bloody asphalt
Brother man strange dogs were barking deep in the night
Under the crescent moon
I say the drums were silent
But somehow the drumming continued,
Oh what a sight

On the night of the day
It was the night of the day
Oh the night when they say
That the martyrs died

Under the crescent moon
And above the bloody asphalt
Brother man strange dogs were barking deep in the night
Under the crescent moon
I say the drums were silent
But somehow the rhythm continued,
Oh what a sight

On the night of the day
It was the night of the day
Oh the night when they say
That the magic died

[Fade]
Wear something red, was the popular cry
And like the pavements and streets
They were filled with envy
Because by morning light
They were covered with our blood
I tell you, not one soul here escaped the frenzy
You know sometimes you're gambling king
