I used to love listening to Calypso when I was a kid. I got a lot of joy out of Desmond Decker ('The Israelites") and Herry Belafonte ("Day-O").
In later years, I found that Calypso influence creeping into my songs as well, sometimes as parody and other times more as a musical style which permeates my guitar playing and melody lines.
This song was sort of an homage to my Calypso heroes. There was no particular inspiration except perhaps my mother who was a very demanding person.
