Lyr. Add: MILLIE
Jamaican "Calypso"

Millie, Millie, can you tell me
Will you get the baby
She said to mind your business
The baby is not your response.

Chorus:
For the father works outside
And she knows where to get her right
And she say baby's coming home on Saturday
Buy the baby a pram.

Milie, Millie, who's the father?
Him have to support the baby.
She said you mind your business
The baby is not your response.

Chorus:
For the father, etc.

Some say the father is soldier
Some say the father is sailor
She didn't seem to know the father
But she tell them the mother.

Chorus:
For the father, etc.

Some say the father is Chinese
Some say the father is Portuguese
She didn't seem to know the father
But she tell them the mother.

Chorus:
For the father, etc.

Go for it, go for wat
I got to watch her get it ready
Go for it, go for wat
I got to watch her get it.

Chorus:
For the father, etc.

Sung by Hubert Porter with "The Tower Islanders,"
"Calypso as played at Tower Isle, Jamaica, B.W.I."
