Ole ole eh eh eh

White man got ta pay deh bills

Spanish man got ta build deh house
China man got ta cook deh food
an deh
Black man got ta lay deh pipe!



This song is burning up the dance floor right now. It is about a year old I think, but things like this take a while to get here. My guess is that they get popular in their own countries and make a pop migration via cruiseships where workers from all over the Caribbean mix. The standard tour of duty is eight months on, two months off, so normally it takes a year for old songs from Belize or Jamaica or Trinidad to become new songs on the Nicaraguan coast.
Stop! The bills done paid
Stop! The house done built
Stop! The food done cook
Stop! You happy now…
