Merrily We Roll Along. 3. Christmas, Christmas. 4. Early in the Morning.

West Indian Folk Songs for Children.

Released in 1960, West Indian Folksongs for Children features original compositions by the Trinidadian Calypso singer Lord Invader. Some of the tunes are twists on other classics. For example, "Merrily We Roll Along" has the same melody as "London Bridges Falling Down. But "Ring a Rosy" may not sound quite the same as the version you're used to! The liner notes include the music of each song along with the lyrics.

Lord Invader (Rupert Westmore Grant; 13 December 1914 – 15 October 1961) was a prominent calypsonian with a very distinctive, gravelly voice. He was born in San Fernando, Trinidad. He became active in calypso in the mid-1930s, and was considered a country bumpkin by his contemporaries, because of his humble beginning.
