Perhaps the funniest calypso of all is "The Big Bamboo," the signature hit of the Duke of Iron. It is the classic, double-entendre, "naughty" calypso. Merely printing the lyrics here would not do it justice, and indeed there are many, many ad-lib, "lost," and corrupted verses among the many versions. Typically played on cruise ships and at island resorts like Barbados, "The Big Bamboo" is not a song for the humor-impaired or prudish, but once you've heard it, you must admit: "The Big Bamboo" pleases one and all.
