Song Lyrics Database (WIP)

This page is hardly worthy of the name database. But I thought it made sense to put the song lyrics on the site in one place for easy searching – especially since people are always searching for song lyrics, and seem to think I have them to hand. I don’t. But I have transcribed (imperfectly) some Antiguan and Barbudan songs. If I do more; I’ll link them here. If you want to contribute, welcome! Incidentally, the songwriters database (incomplete as it is) remains one of the more searched and visited areas of the site, and individual articles on the artistes as well – especially kings Obstinate, Short Shirt, and Swallow. Venturing a guess, I’d say this probably has to do with school research projects.

Antigua’s True Heroes (sung by King Obstinate::lyrics by …)

Believe (sung by King Obstinate::lyrics by …)

Illusion (sung by King Short Shirt::lyrics by …)

In Spite of All (sung by King Short Shirt::lyrics by Shelly Tobitt)

Wet Yuh Han (sung by King Obstinate::lyrics by King Obstinate)
