Half Caste

Album: The Boys Are Back In Town (1975)
  • Halfcaste (from Man and His music Volume II)

    I got a girl in Brixham town
    Her daddy don't like me hangin' 'round
    The boy ain't black, the boy is brown
    Don't he know it's a halfcaste town

    Big smoke
    Big smoke
    Big smoke
    Big smoke

    The boy is halfcaste

    I got a girl up near Richmond way
    Her daddy don't like me to lead the girl astray
    The brown boy is born to serve he say
    Don't he know it's a different day

    In the big smoke
    No joke
    Big smoke
    I like it
    Big smoke
    Big smoke

    Mister, I'm halfcaste
    You see, I'm halfcaste
    I got no class
    You see, I'm halfcaste
