SPOKEN: Right now, as a point of information, something we didn't know until
Recently. Every year, in Trinidad, they have what is know as a "calypsonian
Carnival" in which the various native groups down there vie with one another, uh,
Musically, in order to find out who's the best extemporaneous composer of them
All. And in the year 1955, Lord Invader and his Twelve Penetrators took the title
With this next song, based on a theme by Goethe involving the dance of the dead.
Well, uh, Invader could only draw from experience so he called it, of course,
"Zombie Jamboree, the Song That Killed Calypso."
Well, now
Back to back, belly to belly
Well I don't give a damn
'cause it doesn't matter really
Back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree
Now hear me callin'
Back to back, belly to belly
Well I don't give a damn
'cause it doesn't matter really
Back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree
Zombie Jamboree took place in a New York cemetery (Where?)
Zombie Jamboree took place in Long Island cemetery
Zombies from all parts of the island (Where?)
Some of them are great Calypsonians
Hey, since the season was Carnivale
They got together in Bacchanal
Whatcha doin'?
Back to back, belly to belly
Well I don't give a damn
'cause it doesn't matter really
Back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree
(Unintelligible spoken aside)
Back to back, belly to belly
Well I don't give a damn
'cause it doesn't matter really
