Give the Youngsters a Chance

Verse 1

What a big disgrace and a burning shame
But I don't know who to blame
It's a big disgrace and a burning shame
I don't know who to blame
These amount of old woman in the night club
Hustling for a bob
Stand in the way of a younger girl
But it's time they retire, they too old

Chorus

Caroline and Josephine, making more than fifty
And I'm sure without any doubt, they could be meh granny
Still they walking 'bout at night
With they face like Jack Palance
Go to France!
Step aside and give the youngsters a chance
Oh I'm looking for youth, not experience

Verse 2

I can remembеr last year Carnival
In front the cathedral
Tantiе Mildred stand up, cool as ever
I thought she was a beggar
So I give a quarter to Mildred
Saying "Mama, buy some bread"
She turn around and put she han' on she waist
And she cuss me upsided down in the place

Chorus

If you see the woman, brother, she more than sixty
And I'm sure without any doubt, she could be meh granny
Still she walking 'bout at night
With her face like Jack Palance
Go to France!
Step aside and give the Sparrow a chance
I'm looking for youth, not experience

Verse 3

Drinking in the night club with me bosom friend
Who come down to spend the weekend
I look back, who you think I see?
One of my family
"Good Heavens," I shout, "Mama Jacob
What the France you doing in the night club?"
Same time the rock and roll start to play
She haul on to a sailor and break away

Chorus

If you see the woman, brother, she more than fifty
And I'm sure without any doubt, she could be meh granny
Still she walking 'bout at night
With she face like Jack Palance
Go to France!
Stand aside and give your daughters a chance
I'm looking for youth, not experience
