And when the Yankees first went to Trinidad,
Some of the young girls were more than glad,
They said that the Yankees treat them nice,
And they give them the better price.

They buy rum and Coca-Cola,
Went down Point Cumana,
Both mothers and daughters,
Workin' for the Yankee dollar.

[Rum and Coca-Cola,
Go down Point Cumana,
Both mother and daughter,
Workin' for the Yankee dollar.]

And look, I had a little chick the other day,
But her mother came an took her away,
And so and her mother and her sisters
Went to make out with some soldiers.

Deh bought rum and Coca-Cola,
went down Point Cumana,
Both mothers and daughters,
Workin' for the Yankee dollar.

They have some Aristos in Port Of Spain
I know a lot but I won't call them
And when they did, they wouldn't give you a right
But you go see them with the foreign husbands late at night.

They buy,rum and Coca-cola,
Goin' down Point Cumana,
Both mothers and daughters,
Workin' for the Yankee dollar.

I know a couple who got married one afternoon,
I was to go to Miami on the honeymoon,
But the bride run away, with the soldier man,
And the stupid husband went stark ravin' mad.

Because rum and Coca-Cola,
Goin' down Point Cumana.
Both mothers and daughters,
Workin' for the Yankee dollar.
