Short Pants (English)

Post by irwin » Sun Sep 25, 2022 6:27 am

Hi Guys, This is another update. I have the recording of this song please have a listen, thank you.
Also I have a Country album (14 songs) released on Spotify (Search "Irwin Abrigo"), you may want to listen to the other songs.

This is the link to my song with lyric below. Please listen here; https://soundcloud.com/user-148093629/s ... -country-d


Hi all, This is an updated rewrite (from my Guyanese version) to this lyric in English.
I hope it can keep a reader's attention throughout. Genre, I am thinking Country or pop or maybe Country/pop . Feedback needed.



Short Pants (English)
©2022 Irwin Abrigo

I saw the girls taking off their jeans
Cutting it way above their knees
They’re going on like greed
Like it's the only thing around they need
It is spreading around the world
Entertaining older men and boys
Girl put it on and enemy she breeds
But I know she will succeed

Wearing short pants
Girls don't want to wear long pants
All they want is short pants
Everywhere they go they wear short pants
Short pants

I saw the girls taking off their skirts
Young men you gadda be on the alert
In their short pants some girl flirts
Many young men hearts they’re gonna hurt
Even though they’re are down to earth
Wearing Expensive shoes on the dirt
They want better they’re not settling for worse
Knowing they’ve got their worth

Wearing short pants
Girls don't want to wear long pants
All they want is short pants
Everywhere they go they wear short pants
Short pants

Girls taking off their dresses
Cos they want to look impressive
For those guys who’re bigging up their chests
Ask For a date and they’re giving their yeses
Guys have to come big
To invest
If you want to catch those girls'
Interest

The uptown girls and the downtown girls
The country girls and the interior girls
The Black girls and the white girls
The Indian girls and Amerindian girls
The Chinese girls and the douglers
Fat girls slim girls
Tall girls short girls
Girls all around the world

They’re wearing short pants
Girls don't want to wear long pants
All they want is short pants
Everywhere they go they wear short pants
Short pants

Short pants
The girls don't want to wear long pants
All they want is short pants
Everywhere they go they wear short pants
Short pants

Everything sounded 'mostly english' until I got to this line "The Chinese girls and the douglers"...

What, pray tell, are 'douglers'?

I don't think "interior girls" will immediately communicate to most English speakers.

Good catch! I assumed that the 'interior' of the land would be the countryside. But apparently not from the context. "The country girls and the interior girls" would be the same in my understanding.

" Doughlers" are the mix race. People who are mix race in Guyana we call them Doughler. (And that's when you're mix with the black race)

Thanks for the reply.
