Talk Yuh Talk, Mocking Pretenders

A music video from Trinidad’s 3 Canal (named after a cutlass [machete] with three grooves), titled “Talk You Talk” — my favourite Rapso piece.

Thanks to Guanaguanare for transcribing these great lyrics (see below the video).

Yeah! Revelation!

He promised the fire next time
He promised the fire next time
He promised, He promised, He promised, He promised,
He promised the fire next time, next time
And who ain’t dead they badly wounded
Who ain’t dead, badly wounded
Who ain’t dead, they badly wounded
Who ain’t dead, badly wounded!

Talk yuh talk, you mocking pretender
I check your lyrics and a come fuh test you
Far too long yuh foolin’ the children
Fillin’ their head with brainwash education

Doomsday reach, boy plan your retreat
Cause the children coming to take back the street
The power of the word in the conscious stylin’
Paving the way for a brand new morning
I say, the power of the word in the rapso stylin’
Rocking the roots of the vampire system.

Talk yuh talk, you mocking pretender
talk yuh talk, you bloody deceiver
talk yuh talk, you serpent master
Talk yuh talk, you friggin’ oppressor

Right down to the heart of the matter
Where reality bites and illusions shatter
Right down to the heart of the matter
The tide go bust and reality scatter

He promised the fire next time
He promised the fire next time
He promised,He promised, He promised, He promised,
He promised the fire next time, next time
And who ain’t dead they badly wounded
Who ain’t dead badly wounded
Who ain’t dead they badly wounded
Who ain’t dead badly wounded!

Talk yuh talk, you mocking pretender!
I check your lyrics and I come fuh test you
Far too long you foolin’ the children
Fillin’ their head with brainwash education.

Doomsday reach, plan your retreat
Cause the children comin’ to take back the street
The power of the word in the conscious stylin’
I say, paving the way for a brand new morning
The power of the word in the rapso stylin’
Rocking the roots of the vampire system

Talk yuh talk, you mocking pretender!
talk yuh talk, you bloody deceiver!
talk yuh talk, you serpent master!
Talk yuh talk, you friggin’ oppressor!

Chatter, chatter, chatter, only cealesss chatter
We going right down to the heart of the matter
Chatter, chatter, chatter, what is the matter
I can’t seem to stop this ceaseless chatter
Chatter, chatter, chatter, going round in my head
Oh lord, oh lord like they want me to dead
Everybody talking, nobody listening
Oh my god, what, what really happening?…….

Revelation vibes!!!
