Aye, aye, aye
(La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Aye, aye, aye
(La-la-la, la-la-la , la-la-la)
Aye, aye, aye
(Aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye

I'm gonna tell you a story
And there's no moral to be made
But don't forget when your dancing
That somehow the piper must be paid

Down on the Nile in the southern sea's
There lives a lassy named Minne Breeze
And all the natives agree that she's
The hottest thing in Trinidad

When Minne dances I guarantee
With every move of her vertebrae
The temperature jump up ten degree
In Trinidad that isn't bad

Aye, aye, aye, they call her Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, they all love Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, and all the natives would be so sad
If Minne ever left Trinidad

Although the natives loved Minne so
Minne had herself a steady bow
A fellow known as Calypso Joe
And Minnie swore they'd never part

But they stepped in only as they could
Min won a contest for dancing good
So she went away to Hollywood
When Joe heard that, it broke his heart

Aye, aye, aye, they call her Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, she wasn't good but she wasn't bad
Aye, aye, aye, Calypso Joe was so very sad
When Minne up and left Trinidad

In Hollywood Minne traveled far
They changed her name to Minne Lamar
And pretty soon she became a star
The siren of the picture show

But one day Minne got awful mad
A guy got fresh and she said "You cad"
My heart belongs to my Trinidad
My Trinidad Calypso Joe

Aye, aye, aye, they call her Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, in Hollywood Minne met her cad
Aye, aye, aye, but there is only one native lad
Gets chinny with Minne from Trinidad

So Minnie gave up her dough and fame
And she went back to from where she came
But when she got there she heard with shame
That her Calypso Joe was dead

When Minne heard that, she almost died
She took a gun to try suicide
But as she started to shoot
She cried, "I think I'd rather live instead"

Aye, aye, aye, they call her Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, she went away and they were so sad
Aye, aye, aye, but now the natives are mighty glad
'Cause Minne came back to Trinidad

Aye, aye, aye, they call her Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, they all love Minne from Trinidad
Aye, aye, aye, and all the natives will be so sad
If Minne, Minne came back to Trinidad

Aye, aye, aye
(Aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye
(Aye, aye, aye)
Aye, aye, aye
(Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye)

For Minne
(Minne, for Minne, for Minne)
Minne
(Come home you Minne, poor Minne)
Minne, came back to Trinidad
