I got a message for ya, baby
Come to tell you ‘bout this music
We play down here on the Island
Well it’s called the Rake ‘N Scrape
And this is what we do
Yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

Say the music is so sweet
Got me dancing in the street
Yeah, oh-yeah
So shake your body
Move your feet
Clap your hands
Can you feel the rhythm
Of the drum beat

Rake’ N Scrape
Rake ‘N Scrape
Please, Rake ’N Scrape me, baby
Rake’ N Scrape
Rake ‘N Scrape
Please, Rake’ N Scrape me, baby
Please Rake’N Scrape me, baby
Please Rake’N Scrape me, baby

I just can’t believe the sound
Cat Island music is going down
In Arthur’s Town
Everybody’s getting down
I just can’t believe the sound
Cat Island music is going down
In Arthur’s Town
Everybody’s getting down


Mr Scraper on the saw
Keep me dancing on the floor
Mr Drummer beat the drum
Make me holler out for more
Mr Melody Maker
Play that accordion

Rake’ N Scrape
Rake ‘N Scrape
Please, Rake ’N Scrape me, baby
Rake’ N Scrape
Rake ‘N Scrape
Please, Rake’ N Scrape me, baby
Please Rake’N Scrape me, baby
Please Rake’N Scrape me, baby
Please Rake’N Scrape me, baby
