C      F    C                        F
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
C      F    C                        F
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family

    F                    C
In Trinidad there was a family
                       F
With much confusion as you will see
                                  C
There was a mama and a papa and a boy who was grown
                               F
He wanted to marry and have a wife of his own

   F                     C
He met a young girl who suited him nice
                       F
He went to his papa to ask his advice
                       C
His papa said, "Son, I have to say no
      C                                      F
That girl is your sister but your mama don't know"

C      F    C                        F
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
C      F    C                        F
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family

  G                     D
A week went by and the summer came down
                              G
And soon another girl on the island, he found
                        D
He went to his papa to name the day
                                  G
His papa shook his head and this time he did say
                              D
"You can't marry this girl, I have to say no
      D                                        G
That girl is your aunty but your granny don't know

D           G    D                        G
Hey, woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
D           G    D                        G
Hey, woe is me, shame and scandal in the family

         A                    E
Now, he went to his mama and covered his head
                           A
He told his mama what his papa had said
                                  E
His mama, she laughed, she said, "Go man, go
      E                                          A
Your daddy ain't your daddy but your daddy don't know"

E           A    E                        A
Hey, woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
E       A   E                        A
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
E           A    E                        A
Hey, woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
E      A    E                        A
Woe is me, shame and scandal in the family
