I’ll Always Come Back to You

KING OBSTINATE – I’LL ALWAYS COME BACK TO YOU!

And at an early age in the cane field I start to sing
I’m from a family of 13, and you know that’s a lot of mouths
So I decided to go away to help Papa out

But I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to nyam funghi, I’ll die
I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to be at Brother B, I’ll die

Antigua and Barbuda, you know we’ve had some trying times
So in order to survive I had to sing the Calypso rhyme
Europe, Canada and America are few of the places I have roamed
But regardless of where I have been, I always come back home

I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry for Labour Day, I’ll die
I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to hear what Papa say, I’ll die

Antigua and Barbuda, even though we were far apart
I spoke of you so many times, even though it broke my heart
I keep telling them about our beaches, the coral reefs and indented shores
Where you could play a game of warri, or a card game of All Fours

I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry for Sailing Week, I’ll die
I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to play withe dem Yankee chicks, I’ll die

Antigua and Barbuda, I stuck with you every step of the way
And I am still on the battlefield up to this very day
I’m your true ambassador, who has no office
And who gets no salary, but I owe my country this

I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to swim on my beach, I’ll die
I’ll always come back to you, I’ll always come back to you
And if I can’t come back I’ll cry to hear Brother Connie preach, I’ll die

I’ll always come back to you…
