Rum and coca cola
If you ever go down Trinidad
they make you feel so very glad
calypso sing and make up rhyme
guarantee you one real good fine time.
Drinkin' rum and Coca-Cola
go down Point Koomahnah
both mother and daughter
workin' for the yankee dollar.
Since the Yankee come to Trinidad
they got the young girls all goin' mad
young girls say they treat 'em nice
make Trinidad like paradise.
From Chicachicaree to Mona's Isle
native girls all dance and smile
help soldier celebrate his leave
make every day like New Year's Eve.
Out on Manzanella Beach
G.I. romance with native peach
all night long, make tropic love
next day, sit in hot sun and cool off.
