Happy Happy Birthday Baby – Tune Weavers

 Happy Happy Birthday Baby – Tune Weavers

Happy, happy birthday, baby
Although you’re with somebody new
Thought I’d drop a line to say
That I wish this happy day
Would find me beside you

Happy, happy birthday, baby
No I can’t call you my baby
Seems like years ago we met
On a day I can’t forget
‘Cause that’s when we fell in love

Do you remember the names we had for each other
I was your pretty, you were my baby
How could we say goodbye

Hope I didn’t spoil your birthday
I’m not acting like a lady
So I’ll close this note to you
With good luck and wishes too
Happy, happy birthday, baby

My Bird Brain

Ha ha just typing up the title got me laughing! Well basically after two consecutive nights of partying that is actually what I feel I ended up with….catch my drift? Night one was with Josh, where the both of us finished four jugs of beer, 3 shots of Sambuca each, and one jug of Bourbon coke lest I lost count. After that we ended up dancing with anyone in sight heh heh! All in the spirit of good clean fun!

The following night was with great group of 30s folks from Stomp, well I actually behaved and only had two large mugs of Hoegaarden and a bottle of Victoria Bitter. Below is a pic of me holding up an extinguisher, to help with the tiny candle that the birthday girl Eileen had to blow out.

“Man Smart, Woman Smarter”

I prefer Harry Belafonte’s original version…. *sings* Soca Calypso….Soca Calypso!

I say let us put man and a woman together
To find out which one is smarter
Some say man but I say no
The woman got the man de day should know
And not me but the people they say
That de man are leading de women astray
But I say, that the women of today
Smarter than the man in every way
That’s right de woman is uh smarter
That’s right de woman is uh smarter
That’s right de woman is uh smarter, that’s right, that’s right

Ever since the world began
Woman was always teaching man
And I you listen to my bid attentively
I goin’ tell you how she smarter than me

Samson was the strongest man long ago
No one could a beat him, as we all know
Until he clash with Deliah on top of the bed
She told them all the strength was in the hair of his head

You meet a girl at a pretty dance
Thinking that you would stand a chance
Take her home, thinking she’s alone
Open de door you find her husband home

I was treating a girl independently
She was making baby for me
When de baby born and I went to see
Eyes was blue it was not by me

Garden of Eden was very nice
Adam never work in Paradise
Eve meet snake, Paradise gone
She make Adam work from that day on

Methusaleh spent all his life in tears
Lived without a woman for 900 years
One day he decided to have some fun
The poor man never lived to see 900 and one

– History —

from http://www.calypsoworld.org/noflash/songs-6.htm

“Man Smart, Woman Smarter,” composed by Trinidadian calypsonian King Radio, is one of the best known of all calypsos. Radio originally recorded it in 1936, during his first trip to New York . The song offers wry commentary on the battle between the sexes, one of the eternal themes of calypso. Audiences throughout the world have applauded Radio’s assertion:

I say, it’s the women today
Smarter than the men in every way.

“Man Smart, Woman Smarter” was the first calypso recorded by Harry Belafonte—on a single in 1952. It was also one of the two calypsos that Belafonte included on his million-selling Calypso album (1956). The song became so popular during the 1956-57 American calypso craze that Lucy, Desi, Fred and Ethel even sang it during an episode of the I Love Lucy television show.

Since the 1950s, artists have performed versions of “Man Smart, Woman Smarter” in musical styles ranging from rock and country to zydeco and reggae. Chubby Checkers, Joan Baez and the Grateful Dead are a few of the many musicians who have interpreted the song.
