Peter Tosh - Shame And Scandal Lyrics




Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family

In Trinidad there was a family
In much confusion as you will see
It was a mama and a papa and a boy who was grown
He wanted to merry and a wive of his own
He found a young girl suited him nice
He went to his papa to ask his advice
His papa said son, I have to say no
That girl is your sister but your mama don't know

Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family

A week went by and the summer came down
Soon the best cook in the island he found
He went to his papa to make a day
His papa shook his head and to him he say
You can't merry that girl, I have to say no
That girl is your sister but your mama don't know

Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family

He went to his mama and covered his head
And told his mama what his papa has said
His mama she laughs she said go man go
Your daddy ain't your daddy but your daddy don't know

Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family
Who is real
Shame and scandal in the family

    This is Ska music and a cover I'm sure

  2. Dana Barrett

    anyone else think this song would go amazingly well in those old school animated cartoons that bob up and down? like black and white micky mouse animations with the dancing train XD

    Sérgio Mallandro transformou uma música de incesto em uma música infantil, é um gênio ou não é?

    brunosbarbos2

    Traiçao sim... incesto quase! Hueahua

  11. djmhyde

    cara, essa musica foi lançada 24 anos antes da musca do sergio mallandro... acho que foi o contrário...

  13. Eric van der heijden

    here weedis always legal (amsterdam)

  14. Sojoboscribe

    True, though that one has fairly different lyrics. Tosh seems to be using the version the Kingston Trio popularized as his lyric base.

  15. Rob Marley

    soon come my friend.

  16. Futura Vision

  17. Moth Sid BOATILE

  43. Don D Lion

    Hey and here we are, this is the original sound, the way it was, Peter and the Skatalites. Peter Bunny and Bob sang Simmer Down with the Skatalites, pretty amazing for them -at that age- to sing being backed by the masters. Peter Bunny and Bob - when together - played some amazing music, the Wailing Wailers and then the Wailers were simply great. Do the ska, do the rock steady, do the reggae.

  44. VALEBILHAS

    @frostydog32 peter tosh bob marley bunny wailler backed by the skatalites theres not much to argue

  45. TheSergio59

    Yes I Peter Tosh & The Skatalites, it's great music for " Shame & Scandal "
