THEY SAY I REIGN TOO LONG - Lord Executor (calypso)

They say I reign too long
Forgetting that the constitution is strong
Instead of glorifying mi longyears reign
They making glad to break down mi name

They say I reign too long
Forgetting that mi/the constitution is strong
The Lord Executor can hold his own
Kalenda Calypso is the cornerstone

When every hair on Queen Victoria's head
Was turning white, England never said
"She is too old to sit on the throne"
But allow her to remain to control her own

When ?Jacques Hobbes? was 53
He was still barkin' splendidly
And so, you find every word in me
The ?boundary? right 'round this colony

We all recommend the precious wine
That is kept in the cellar for a length of time
Connoisseurs declare it makes you bold
Healthy, vigorous and cold

Another proctor you must not forget
Is the mighty Port-o-Spain Gazette
Early in the morning, you cannot refuse
For it always convey the best of news

I met Boldavier a student ?of Clark?
I must confess that he had much luck
A strong constitution and something more
But he hadn't the courage to prolong the war

I met King Pharaoh, the bravest of all
Who boldly answered my duty call
But I found in him no beauty to eulogize
No strength in his arms as to gain the prize

Then came Black Prince with his armour on
Boastful, antagonistic and full of scorn
And in chains of bondage, the villain was bound
And cast in a dungeon far underground

And then all over the colony
I found pretenders waiting for me
But when I, Executor draw nigh
Man and beast and insect must die
