Meghan, My Dear

Written by: Maria Bhola, Terri Lyons 
Sung by: Terri Lyons

When Sparrow did sing 
About de white meat an’ ting
Man dem start to fret
Like he never eat ah dark meat yet
But if ever you lack 
De understanding of once yuh go black
In de pages of history will document Harry’s testimony
(Yuh know why?)

De Prince gave up he money
De Prince gave up his throne
De Prince gave up he power (why?)
Just for dark meat alone 
He family go sour
De Queen she might sin she soul
But he muddah go proud when he singing out loud
Dark meat to de world
Harry tell dem!

Once yuh go black, you’ll never go back (never!)
Once yuh go black, you’ll never go back 
De haters on social media say dat Harry will soon regret
But they will never understand why he leaving because
They never eat a black meat yet…Aye!

Go Harry! Go Harry!

Harry mess with they pride
When he introduce his bride
De Queen she wasn’t happy, 
She was like, “What nonsense is this Harry?”
It was a big joke 
Harry near make de woman ketch a stroke
When he proclaim “Yes I do” to a woman of darker hue 

De Prince gave up he money
An’ he kick away he throne
He tell dem he eh wah no power (why?) 
Just for dark meat alone
He family go sour 

De Queen she might sin she soul
But he muddah go proud when he singing out loud
Melanin to de world
Harry tell dem!
Once yuh go black, (you’ll never) you’ll never go back (Never! Never! Never!)
Once yuh go black (tell dem) you’ll never go back
