The West Indies Cricket Board on Song

Discovered, via Lawrence Booth's The Spin in the Guardian Unlimited, a calypso on the West Indies Cricket Board, Take a Rest. At 4:14, it’s not too long, so is worth a listen. And if you can find the lyrics somewhere, please be a dear and pass it on to me.

Inasmuch as the Victory Calypso was a happy song, lauding the efforts of “those little pals of mine Ramadhin and Valentine”, Take a Rest bemoans the fate of West Indies cricket, thanks to the ineffectual functioning of the board.

To listen to some more cricket calypsos, visit The Calypso Tent.
