How To Play

CHORUS
 
       D7      G   D7                       G
I said oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
D7      G   D7                       G
Oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
 
VERSE 1
 
        G                     D
Down in Trinidad, there was a family
     D7                G
With much confusion as you will see
                        D
A mama and a papa and a boy who was grown
   D7                       G
He wanted to marry and have wife of his own
                     D
He found a girl, she suited him nice
   D7                    G
He went to his father to ask his advice
                         D
His father said, "son, I have to say no
    D7                            G
The girl is your sister, but your mama don't know"
 
CHORUS
 
D7      G   D7                       G
Oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
       D7      G   D7                       G
I said oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
 
VERSE 2
 
             G                     D
And then the weeks went by and the summer came down
D7                         G
Soon, the best girl on the islands he found
                       D
He went to his papa to make it a date
    D7                         G
His papa shook his head and to this he did say
                              D
"You can't marry that girl, I have to say no
          D7                            G
Cause the girl is your sister, but your mama don't know"
 
CHORUS
 
D7      G   D7                       G
Oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
       D7      G   D7                       G
I said oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
 
VERSE 3
 
       G                    D
Oh, he went to his mama, he covered his head
   D7                     G
He told his mom, what his father had said
                                    D
His mother, she laughed, she said, "go man go
     D7                               G
Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know"
 
CHORUS
 
D7      G   D7                       G
Oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
     D7      G   D7                       G
Well oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
       D7      G   D7                       G
I said oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
       D7      G   D7                       G
I said oh, misery, shame and scandal in the family
