If you are not a West Indian and came across this post, then welcome to Sokah2Soca. We feature Soca and Calypso music. Today, for this post, we feature a classic calypso done in double entendre style. This song is entitled, Dr. Kitch, written and performed by the late Lord Kitchener. Lord Kitchener (real name, Aldwyn Roberts) was a son of Arima, the only Royal Chartered Borough in the Caribbean. He was a legendary calypsonian. I said calypsonian, not calypso singer. A calypsonian composes and sings his own songs. We give a pass to those who had songwriters and did both wrote and sang songs written by others. However, we differentiate them from the casual calypso singer who simply sang a calypso song and became famous because of that song. 

Now back to "Dr. Kitch" by the great Lord Kitchener. Every West Indian understands the double meaning delivered by the bard for this legendary song. So if someone tells you to get your head out of the gutter, tell them that "I am a West Indian" and our culture takes us to places that put a smile on our faces. We are not vile and rude but we can appreciate a damn good Calypso when we hear it!

So how did we manage to post this song today? Well, I am part of a public group on Facebook that goes by the name 'Vintage Calypso'. On that page, Zeno Obi shared the song in the following manner, #OldSchool, #I_Push_It_inLegendary song from 1963. A classic song it is, and I decided to share this lyric video here with our fans. Enjoy!
