    much a part of us as ska Milly Small and blue beat And the brown paper we put in our shoes to keep chilblains off our feet Do you remember the clubs house parties shabeens and red stripe beer The things that took our minds off hard life racism and the constant fear The days when bad didn t mean good and guns were children s toys Not the weapon of choice for drug crazed teenage boys Tucked between our summer clothes were bottles of Wray and Nephew rum Hidden at the bottom of the suitcase from the eyes of Her Majesty s customs Mum said a little for everyone and some to soak the dried fruit for the cake Which at Christmas and Easter all the women would compete to bake Oh Christmas remember Cherry B Baby Cham and the Blauspot radiogram The tasteless turkey washed down with advacaat and spicy curried lamb Christmas dinner was eaten with the best cutlery and china kept in the glass cabinet And every year we all met at Alex Park carnival and prayed it wouldn t be wet The pardner money how many times do you remember hearing that phrase And how many young people know about pardner these days How that precious money was paid every week and you d better not be late With someone s relative back home waiting to put food on their children s plates The pardner bought land paid school fees and built or bought a house The poor black man was able to buy a ring and make his girlfriend his spouse Remember when winter was really winter the fog snow and black ice The fun of coach trips the men playing cricket dominoes and tossing the dice Then there was church whether Saturday or Sunday we didn t have a choice What we did have then was a conscience that still but not so small voice Of your mother with her shopping trolley or maybe it was your wife Who with the look kept you on the straight and narrow in fear of your life The pardner was deposit and rent for that room you were the wrong colour to get It saved your hide when you lost the money under the mattress on that sure fire bet The pardner another part of black culture is dead and buried from a bygone age It took its final curtain call bowed to grateful applause and left centre stage THE PARDNER English Version For decades the pennies changed hands and turned into pounds Because to pay rent and buy food there was never enough to go round They worked hard to throw one hand two hands or maybe three To get the draw for granny s new teeth and the children s school fee Paying the pardner that precious generation connecting thread Was safer than using the money to prop up the old mattress of your sunken bed Papa married mama because his pardner draw meant
