I learned this song in 1964 in my 7th grade music class at O. A. Peters Intermediate School, in Garden Grove, CA. The song haunts me because no one I know has ever heard of it. It was called Baijun Boy and it was catchy and fun. Since Calypso music was very popular in the 60s, it was our favorite song to sing. The lyrics were pretty much those posted by Terri M. I would love to hear it again, or at least find a copy of it from the old song book.
