Mama Caraïbo

Mama Caraïbo, fire up your ovens,
the dance tour from Fort-de-Frace
comes to Paris, Paris-Bercy.
Mama Caraïbo, they are coming
to your little bistro tonight,
bringing you the music of the land.
 
Get a good feast cooked,
and prepare some Bingo1
and the Antillean spice mixture
they will arrive soon, soon.
 
There are steady winds all over the skies of Paris,
some flying fish around the île Saint-Louis,
some lyre birds in the Trocadero gardens
and lots of dugout canoes in the metro.
 
Mama Caraïbo, put on your old sarong,,
something tells me that tonight
you will feel 20 years old again.
Mama Caraïbo, it will be very, very hot,
there'll be sunlight in the alleys,
as in the îles du Levant2.
 
One short step, there it is,
and then two, then three, like that
and it's the diva of the Beguine,
long live Mama, hurrah!
Yes, go for it, you're dancing, you're danxing,
you've got the rythm, go ahead,
move your hips well, hurrah
long live Mama, hurrah!
 
They've arrived with their colourful shirts,
their drums and their flower necklaces3
at the heart of Paris when the begin to play
you'll hear the wind in the palm trees.
