Little Otis and The Upsetters 1984 With glistening drops Of blues tinged ecstasy Little Otis Greets the crowd Backed up by his boys The Upsetters Dark shirts pressed To razor sharpness Shaded glasses Polished to perfection A tumbler of Black Velvet In Otis right palm A cigarette dangling With an air of menace In his left The music’s fiugers Pry open the assembled souls Carrying whispers of delight As Little Otis and the Upsetters Celebrate their High Mass tonight In A Major For melodic saints and sinners The nearness of the congregation eliciting a sweet sensation From his voice It’s cadence drifting through The smoky bar I put a spell on you baby! Otis feels a closeness Like the night creeping Over the horizon And entering The farthest reaches East of Eden The crowd sighs And the boys fly Twisting cover songs To their own whims In their hearts The boys completely understand That the magic they feel Is the love they have For the music For the passion For the ecstasy The gentle breezes escaping From their throats As they sing their Twisty Love Incite the crowd To let go Dancers on the night winds While the Upsetters reach deep Into their Bible Of Blues Confidential Prayers One song left in the set Milo Buy the whole house A Wet Shaved drink Compliments of Stevie J. And save a dance with Mo Over there For ME Then the boys slip Into a whole other dimension For tonight is Otis’ last night Of doing covers For tonight they dream New Dreams And at the stroke of midnight Unleash them to greet The new day And blast into the future The boys set off a bomb Driven by Ron’s bass Fueled by Timbo’s harp Flavored by Rasman Norman Beating a Caribbean Drum As Phil N. DeBlanc’s Kansas City sax growls At Billie’s parachuting guitar riffs A new gospel is born As the congregation Greet the Upsetters With jubulation It’s the way of the bar band When they take the risk To do something new And when it comes from the heart It always rings true
