Opinion: Baker Jr. strikes again

POSTED: 02/21/12 12:17 PM

Calypsonian Baker Jr. is at it again. This time he targets the upcoming French-side elections in his song Never Again. These are the lyrics:

NEVER AGAIN
Verse 1
Election two thousand twelve, is blooming in French St. Martin
They plan for votes to be a blow out sale bargain
Politicians aim is for wealth, so the excitement is building
They on a mission playing a strategist campaign
The present Collectivité is extra bold
The first impeach president have to meet his gold
They seems very confidence you take their name to the pole

But to their surprise they all off course
Their own workers prepare to change their votes
With angry citizens planning to cut they throat

Chorus- Hear them

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
Since the collectivite refused to hear our say

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
When we strike for our right they treating to dock we pay

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
How can we vote for them when they have of all in dismay?

We strike to keep classes from closing
And get answers from government
And for our safety when the pots in the canteen was shocking

Before they come to check out the problem
They send Jandame for us instead
And they feed our children with a caparison and hard French bread
Yet they cast the blame! On the workers them! So we can’t vote them back in!
NEVER AGAIN
Verse 2
The workers proceed to complain, saying just how they left us hanging
In front of the Mary’s until the sun set in
We waited from morning to evening still couldn’t see we government
But what you expect from a puppet on a string

They refuse their workers simple answers
After taking orders from the puppet master
Now they banking on SOS radio listeners to help put them back in power

But just like how they make us suffer
Give them a taste of their own supper
We ain’t voting for dictators and absolutely no liars

Chorus- Tell them

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
They do their bad deeds and call their workers bad employees

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
Telling lies on national radio with a poor alibi

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
All of them will defend their pride whether their wrong or right

But the masses know the collectivite
Have of all in disarray
But tell them old people say every dog have his day

So tell them their day is coming
And we have Cado for them
A gift of endorsement by citizens who declare their incompetence
So we voting for change! For St. Martin! For a new government
NEVER AGAIN
Verse 3
When they present article 74, they said it would open new door
The doors of dictatorship and for the rich
Not once they consider the poor, instead then they taxing us more
The autonomy they promise was in their benefit
The puppet master controlling the puppet strings
Running a Fidel Castro government with Hitler System
They fired the vice president Ogoundele cause she too strict them

So the puppet master could enforce his laws
Taxing us heavy without any remorse
Have us in major deficit with pure loop whole and flaws

Chorus- But

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
We wish to retrieve article 73 system

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
To get an ambulance they must call Guadeloupe while we suffering

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
That state clearly we don’t have no say in we own government

While poor people here striving and struggling
Much less for suffering
When they claim it’s for the benefit of St. Martin that is not genuine

So all who in favor to change
The collectivite of St. Martin
Raise your hand for change of government, or keep it down for Hitler system
Change the whole regime! Or Vote them back in! They’re rebelling never again!

NEVER AGAIN
Verse 4
The French unemployment rates high, Government have us in this plight
The masses will be surprise when they hear why
The puppet master have no pride, sold we sovereignty to Dutch side
That ‘s why they force Daniel Gibbs Project in exile
Until we change this government we‘ll be latent
With no development on French St. Martin
The Dutch leaders paying lump sums to the French politicians

So this is a Machiavelli System
Stratagems run by Dutch and French government
While they reaping and profiting nothing for French citizens

Chorus-

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
That’s why they presented article 74 system

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
To keep the agreement for their colonial organism

NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!
We must broke this family chain for a genuine government

So help me God this is the political truth
Of French and Dutch St. Martin
The eight thousand Euros project was in dispute by Fleming government

Because they have too much investment
At risk on Dutch St. Maarten
Research the family tree from 1959 government
We want Development! In French St. Martin! Time we change this government!
