(3:16)

Chorus Calaloo, Strange Calaloo Mysterious curious roux Try as you might to avoid the hoodoo Sooner or later we're all in the stew / From here in my kitchen I watch the whole scene Life on dis island's A unique cuisine It simmers and bubbles And looks quite routine Till somebody spill all da beans / Chorus Calaloo, Strange Calaloo Mysterious curious roux Try as you might to avoid the hoodoo Sooner or later we're all in the stew / Night after night On dat terrace out der Plays a melodrama Could equal Shakespeare Dey may tell theirself Dat somehow dey are not Best take it from me, We're all in the same pot / Chorus Calaloo, Strange Calaloo Mysterious curious roux Try as you might to avoid the hoodoo Sooner or later we're all in the stew / Bridge Hey Hey Sheila, Hey Hey Sheila Hey Hey Sheila, what's in dat calaloo Hey Sheila tell us, Hey Sheila tell us Hey Hey Sheila, what's in that Calaloo / We got Crab and pigtail Squid ink and fish scale Okra and dasheen leaves Chitchat and chatter Fill up the platter With a garnish of pure make believe / Chorus Calaloo, Strange Calaloo Mysterious, curious roux Though some might think that somehow they are not Make no mistake we're all in the same pot / Take it from me dis is no Camelot
