Natalie Cole

Natalie Maria Cole (born February 6, 1950) is an American singer, songwriter and performer. The daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole, Cole rose to musical success in the mid-1970s as a R&B artist with the hits "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)", "Inseparable" and "Our Love". After a period of failing sales and performances due to a heavy drug addiction, Cole reemerged as a pop artist with the 1987 album, Everlasting, and her cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac". In the 1990s, she re-recorded standards by her father, resulting in her biggest success, Unforgettable... with Love, which sold over seven million copies and also won Cole numerous Grammy Awards. She has sold over 30 million records worldwide.</ref> more »

Wa-oo-oo, wa-oo-oo, 
Wa-oo wa-oo wa-oo wa-ay
Wa-oo-oo, wa-oo-oo, 
Wa-oo wa-oo wa-oo wa-ay

Sittin' by de ocean 
Me heart, she feel so sad, 
Sittin' by de ocean, 
Me heart, she feel so sad... 
Don't got de money 
To take me back to Trinidad. 

Fine calypso woman, 
She cook me shrimp and rice, 
Fine calypso woman, 
She cook me shrimp and rice
Dese yankee hot dogs 
Don't treat me stomach very nice.

In Trinidad, one dollar buy 
Papaya juice, banana pie, 
Six coconut, one female goat, 
An' plenty fish to fill de boat. 
One bushel bread, one barrel wine, 
An' all de town, she come to dine. 

But here is bad, one dollar buy 
Cup of coffee, ham on rye. 
Me throat she sick from necktie, 
Me feet hurt from shoes. 
Me pocket full of empty, 
I got Calypso blues.

Dese yankee girl give me big scare, 
Is black de root, is blonde de hair. 
Her eyelash false, her face is paint, 
And pads are where de girl she ain't

She jitterbug when she should waltz, 
I even think her name is false. 
But calypso girl is good a lot, 
Is what you see, is what she got. 

Sittin' by de ocean 
Me heart, she feel so sad, 
Sittin' by de ocean, 
Me heart, she feel so sad
Don't got de money 
To take me back to Trinidad. 

Wa-oo-oo, wa-oo-oo, 
Wa-oo wa-oo wa-oo wa-ay
Wa-oo-oo, wa-oo-oo, 
Wa-oo wa-oo wa-oo wa-ay
