Scandal in the family

Versions: #1#2
Oh Dad,
What a misfortune, what a misfortune for me !
Oh Dad,
What a scandal if Mum knew that...
 
In Trinidad, over there in the Antilles,
In Trinidad, lived a family.
The mother and the father, and the eldest son
Who, at age of 40, was still not married.
 
One day he found the girl whom he wanted.
He said to his father "I would like to marry her"
Woe, my son... Woe, you can't to it,
Because this girl is your sister and your mother doesn't know it
 
Oh Dad,
What a misfortune, what a misfortune for me !
Oh Dad,
What a scandal if Mum knew that...
 
In Trinidad, over there in the Antilles,
In Trinidad, oh, what a family
Two years passed, and the boy, one evening,
Came to his father and told him hopefully :
 
The school teacher wants to marry me
But the poor father took a look overwhelmed :
My son, you can't,
You can't do this,
Because this girl is your sister and your mother doesn't know it
 
Oh Dad,
What a misfortune, what a misfortune for me !
Oh Dad,
What a scandal if Mum knew that...
 
Run out of patience,
He ran, disgusted
Told his mother the truth
The mother burst out laughing and said "Don't worry,
Your father is not your father,
And your father doesn't know it".
 
Oh Mum,
What a happiness, what a happiness for me
Oh Mum,
Whant a scandal if Dad knew that...
