  1. The House in Old Antigua

    In a house in old St John, Antigua
    In the British West Indies
    The spirit of the old colonial era
    Lives on in the ancient bar

    Where the 3 percent
    The white Caribbean overlords
    Gather nightly

    For a drink of rum
    And endless GT’s
    While they sit around
    And play whist

    And dream of the old colonial era
    That is fast disappearing around them
    The servants are all African Caribbean

    But the owner is an Anglo Indian chap
    And the landlord of the club
    Is a Syrian immigrant from Lebanon

    Thus passes the old colonial era
    Into the gentle dustbin of history

    One drink of rum after another
    Fading away into the near distant past
