Trini Christmas Cake

Half moon - in the sky

Near zero - North... ‘a 49

Trini Christmas - on my mind

Trini Christmas - on my mind.


I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

I know it took so long to make....


Cake so heavy - give me backache

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

Rum it up, Spice it up, Love id up... non stop

Is de season to celebrate, 

Celebrate wid parang

Dancing an singing, 

Cooking an cleaning ‘till we can’t stand.


No warm id up, let’s start id up wid rum an puncha créme

I wanna piece a Christmas Cake......

Trini Cake ......Black Christmas Cake


Finally, jet make touch down; 

Crazy taxi ride into town

To Auntie Asha and Uncle Edwin; 

Already Christmas lights - all around

Never seen so many greens

Palm trees soca in de gentle breeze

Parang from back yard, and parang from de beach

Auntie and Uncle got brushes an cans ‘a paint

“Christmas time; time to fresh up, Come on man,

Help me hang dese curtains dat Auntie make.


I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

I know it took so long to make....


Cake so heavy - give me backache

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

Rum id up, Spice id up, Love id up... non stop

Is de season to celebrate, 

Celebrate wid parang

Dancing an singing, 

Cooking an cleaning ‘till we can’t stand.


No warm id up, let’s start id up wid rum an puncha créme

I wanna piece a Christmas Cake......

Trini Cake ......Black Christmas Cake


Early morning, new stove deliverin’

One by one cousins join de kitchen 

Assembly line, one-by-one for pastelles

What a smell, cloves an sweet meat an cornmeal 

All day long, drinking sorrel, chitter chatter, ridum ‘a chak chak

Me and Uncle Edwin clean de front yard an de porch

Friends lean on de fence like parrots to watch

Out come some wine an out come some rum

Out come de cuatro, bottle an de spoons

Looks like de front yard won’t be done too soon.


I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

I know it took so long to make....

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

Rum id up, Spice id up, Love id up... non stop

Dancing an singing, 

Cooking an cleaning ‘till we can’t stand.

6 PM an Christmas.... lights shining so bright

Christmas stockings hang de palm tree... not too high

Auntie Asha still in de kitchen an floors do shine

Sky so dark all de stars a special light

Dog bark announcing de parrandero 

Get ready for de chak chak, guitars, toc toc

Call de neighbours, come de kitchen,

Parang all night long, ... roti an rum, ‘til ham is gone

Dancing and laughing and sing-along

It’s Christmas time, Christmas time, 

Limin, limin all night long

It’s Christmas time, Christmas time, 

Limin, limin all night long.


I wanna piece - a Christmas Cake

Trini Cake .... Black Christmas Cake

Celebrate wid parang

Dancing an singing, 

Cooking an cleaning ‘till we can’t stand.


No warm id up, let’s start id up wid rum an puncha créme
