Calypso & Soca Trivia | Bumper References

If you are from the Caribbean then understanding the use of the word "bumper" in a song is not a problem. For those who are not tuned in to Caribbean music then lets put this one out there.
The word "Bumper" is used in a song to reference a woman's derriere or buttocks or backside. It does not matter how you reference or spell the word it all comes down to the woman's butt cheeks.

We have constantly said that we won't readily post songs that belittle people or put women in a bad light. The word bumper appeared in many songs that were sung for various carnivals across the Caribbean region. We are confident that you have heard songs (Calypso and Soca) that have referenced "bumpers" pointing to a woman's anatomy. 

So here is the question, the trivia segment today for those who claim to know Calypso and Soca. Name a song and artiste that used the word "Bumper" to reference a woman's derriere. If you can name the year then that is a plus... I will post the song for your listening pleasure. Please comment and add to the story; reference a song, singer and year if possible! We are looking for an early reference for the use of the word "Bumper" (as in anatomy of a woman).

*** The YouTube player credits Mighty Panther but this is the same song on Muriel's Treasure Volume 2 listed as "The Bedbug Song by Brownie". The singer sang in the song "but not Brownie in the song". Listen to the song he references 'bite them young ladies bumper' in the song. Muriel's Treasure lists the songs in the collection from the 1950's & 1960's. ***
