Nah Leaving (2001) Lyrics

By Denyse Plummer

Lyrics Nah Leaving by Denyse Plummer
Calypso Lyrics (2001)

Denyse Plummer winning the calypso crown with Nah Leaving, a song still hitting the airwaves up to this day!






They say meh country so stressfull, so tense
With race hate, young jail bait, too much violence
Girl pack up and go, this sweet Trinbago
I tell dem no way (no way)
How de people small-minded, macoscious and loud
Of bobol and scandal they boastful and proud
Yet somehow I see, all this foolery
As window dressing, dey still ah blessing

You see ah just eat ah curry cue
Peas, rice and cascado
Two crab and callaloo
Meh neighbour just gimme
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Meh navel string so deep and freedom doh come cheap

Where else in de world you know
Sweet Pan and Calypso
People just overflow two days in the street
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Is here wey conceive me, is here ah go dead

I see a people creative who must overcome
Make magic from old steel, from rusty old drum
So why should I fear, some tears here and there
I tell dem no way (no way)
Comradery so special like natural instinct
Dey meet you by de river, is come take ah drink
Unspoken but kind, no silent bad mind
So forget New York and and de old talk

You see ah just drink some babash brew
Puncheon rum and Mountain Dew
Ah hot plate ah Pelau too
Meh macomere just bring me
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Meh navel string so deep and freedom doh come cheap

Where else in de world you know
Jump high then wine down low
And if you don't get on so, dey watch you silly
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Is here wey conceive me, is here ah go dead

Mayaro, Maracas Bay (Nah Leaving)
Savannah wey children play (Nah Leaving)
De sorrel, de mauby bark (Nah Leaving)
The corn soup, de bake and shark (Nah Leaving)
The Oval, see Lara bat (Nah Leaving)
The picong, de tit-for-tat (Nah Leaving)
The ritual of Carnival (Nah Leaving)
The Soca Chutney Bachannal (Nah Leaving)

I wake up one morning and before I stretch
Is fry bake, my doubles, meh nostril done ketch
And there for my view, an ocean so blue
I going no where (no where)
Humming birds and black birds dat sing in de trees
Chaconia and spices dat pass in de breeze
Wild meat by de grap, agouti and lappe
In forrest grazing, it so amazing

You see ah just watch ah football match
Wey Trini and Yankee clash
So much fun, de balls dat lash
Meh head still dizzy
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Meh navel string so deep and freedom doh come cheap

Where else in de world you know
Milk and de honey flow
Vagrants does bend down low and drink from ah drain
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Is here wey conceive me, is here ah go dead

Barbwire, roll wire, we living in jail
Somehow I know, Denyse will prevail
As folks will recall, our problems are small
I going no where (no where)
The heart of my people is of solid gold
Of Soca dey move you with rythym and soul
So who want to leave, because dey believe
Dat out dey easy, I say dey crazy

You see ah just eat ah curry-cue
Peas, rice and cascadoux
Two cab and callaloo
Meh neighbor just gimme

Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Meh navel string so deep and freedom doh come cheap
Where else in de world you know
Sweet Pan and Calypso
People just overflow two days in the street
Nah leaving (nah leaving)
Is here wey conceive me, is here ah go dead

Mayaro, Maracas Bay (Nah Leaving)
Savannah wey children play (Nah Leaving)
The sorrel, de mauby bark (Nah Leaving)
The corn soup, de bake and shark (Nah Leaving)
The Oval, see Lara bat (Nah Leaving)
The picong, de tit-for-tat (Nah Leaving)
The ritual of Carnival (Nah Leaving)
The Soca Chutney Bachannal (Nah Leaving)
