Does anyone know where I could easily get the full sheet music (with piano accompaniment) for this very old Creole song with a melody borrowed for "Rum and Coca-Cola"? I know it is in the songbook "Calypso Songs of the West Indies" but that book seems to be difficult to find.

Didn't take much searching, if this is the right one:

Wrong one, Jack.

I have the Calypso song book by Massie Patterson and Lionel Belasco, as transcribed by Maurice Baron. It is rare, and expensive for a paperback with 12 scores.
PM your email and I will scan the score for you (both Creole and English lyrics, with musical score).

The full story of the song and the suit is in Louis Nizer's book, but this thread gives a simplified version of the background story, and the song composed by Belasco about 1906.

Q, post on here or PM me back to confirm that you got the message with my email address in it. It should get there to you and you should be able to send the sheet music to me unless my email inbox is clogged. It shouldn't be, because my brother helped me set my Facebook account so I wouldn't get excessive notifications.)

You probably noticed the spelling errors, they are 1:1 (software-generated) from the MIDI provided by Joe in the other thread. Instead of "bacu" it must read "baou" = beau/belle, of course.

Q or Morwen, can you post the original chords (or better still, the accompaniment in ABC)? Being of classical European background, Belasco probably chose something more sophisticated than just C and G.

Grishka- pm your email and I will sent the sheet music.

There is a brief biography of Belasco, in Wikipedia, without citations.
A better one at http://www.allmusic.com/artist/lionel-belasco-p147890/biography
