Subject: Origins: Calypso War- 'Yes my mother dead'
This is a calypso war verse sung by Lord Invader inthis clip: in a live performance at the Calypso At Midnight concert hosted by Alan Lomax.
Here are the lyrics of the first verse he sings:
Quite aside from the fact that Lord Invader is great at rhyming on the spot, does anyone know whether this verse may or may not be true? This could be combined with the "Lord Invader-calypsonian" thread, in fact I recently refreshed it (the older thread) in the hope of reopening discussion, but wondered whether or not this needs a separate thread which may lead to discussions of biographical information. However it may be combined with the older thread. I just don't want to have to keep on refreshing the older one.
