Round the Globe

Page

buccooBeen round the globe as king, then again
Been round the globe as sailor, then again
Been round the glove migrant, then again
Been round the globe, round the globe
Been round the globe as explorer, then again
Been round the globe as captive, then again
Been round the globe as merchant, then again
Been round the globe
Round the globe

So let the words roll like the waves in Bay Buccoo
Reef in Tobago, and on down to Toco
Catch me jumping in a band with a jumbie named Moko
Steel pan, rapso, kaiso by Cro-Cro
I keep it local, green banana with my ochro
Why dutch chocolate when is WE grow the cocoa?
That’s weird like Yoko, Oh no!
My flow be moving you too, as if your name was Bono
Flatbush to Soho, symphony or solo
Or out on the dancefloor where they playing Yami Bolo
I got crowds yelling domo arigato
Down in Tokyo, my flow gold like FloJo
I covered more ground than even gypsies or hobos
I say so cuz I know so, Matagrosso!
Where I scaled a plateau, town of Matamoros
I sight the bordeline, security so-so
These INS clowns looking sillier than bozo
I skip through, sipping tequila pon a sno-cone
Plus a sac of gold then I bounce like a yoyo
Up to Ohio where I met my man Bartolo
He drove me to T.O. the ride was older than DeSoto
Check it out: here’s the two of us in a photo
In the Tdot I’m on the masterplan with Mo-mo
Shouts to my people, Rexdale to Scarborough
Keep it moving though, I was gone in the morrow
Stop by Sunoco and then hit the 4-oh
No sorrow, jump for joy, dance the toro
(Charge!) Kombat mortal, take on Goro
I pull a Hollyfield, lick him down with a low blow
They paid me so much Don King he had to borrow
Funds abormal, but he was nice with the promo
Took me to Burkina Faso, then to Togo
Chilling with the King in Morocco playing polo
Stop by Gibraltar where they speak Hispaniolo
This director Pablo aks me to star in a porno
It drove all these gringos to go plum loco
I was dancing with chiquitas to the beat of los lobos
But who got the beat, moreso than the Go-gos?
Got to be these sisters who sweeter than rolos
Sweeter than mango juice down in Puerto
Rico, brownskin sweet delicioso
Competition hating, they checking me slow-slow
Bout to be extinct and that’s foretold by Jo-Jo
Testing me’s a no-no, arresting me is a no-go
I got this one lawyer by the name of Shapiro
Plus a sword like Zoro, I’ll slash out your logo
Root you out like roto, than bill you for the total
I’m bad like Billy Boyo, or Bob when he sang “Woy-yo”
Daaaaamn! Picture me going out like Slow Mo
nth digri blackbelt in judo in this dojo
Me buck up pon this one big cop, his name Robo
Known for killing brothers with the infamous chokehold
But he got blown away like spray from whales blowholes
They aks me if who did it, I told them that I don’t know
Big manhunt, I had to keep it on the dolo
Broke out like Papillon down the Orinoco
I knew I’d make it home, I had a hunch like Quasimodo
When I reach back, kick back, scratch the scrotal
Me J and Tiqo skate the Rideau where it’s so cold
They want to stay, I want to go, they get vocal
Them fellas mad yuh know, plus rugged like poco
Monsters who be living inside a ball that’s oval
Tine’s what I drink, amps me up like a phono
Plus the seamoss, carrot juice, and some cho-cho
Dreads sip a roots drink, yankees drink ho-hos
400 years we still trying to gain a toe-hold
When they brought us here, we had to work pro bono
Kidnapped by a bunch of proto-mafiosos
Led by this pirate by the name of Cristoforo
But now we reach up, raise up, round the globe, yo
Said now we reach up, raise up, round the globe, yo
Round the globe
Round the globe

Been round the globe as king, then again
Been round the globe as sailor, then again
Been round the glove migrant, then again
Been round the globe, round the globe
Been round the globe as explorer, then again
Been round the globe as captive, then again
Been round the globe as merchant, then again
Been round the globe, round the globe
