When Sparrow did sing 
About de white meat an’ ting
Man dem start to fret
Like he never eat ah dark meat yet
But if ever you lack 
De understanding of once yuh go black
In de pages of history will document Harry’s testimony
(Yuh know why?)

De Prince gave up he money
De Prince gave up his throne
De Prince gave up he power (why?)
Just for dark meat alone 
He family go sour
De Queen she might sin she soul
But he muddah go proud when he singing out loud
Dark meat to de world
Harry tell dem!

Once yuh go black, you’ll never go back (never!)
Once yuh go black, you’ll never go back 
De haters on social media say dat Harry will soon regret
But they will never understand why he leaving because
They never eat a black meat yet…Aye!

Go Harry! Go Harry!

Harry mess with they pride
When he introduce his bride
De Queen she wasn’t happy, 
She was like, “What nonsense is this Harry?”
It was a big joke 
Harry near make de woman ketch a stroke
When he proclaim “Yes I do” to a woman of darker hue 

De Prince gave up he money
An’ he kick away he throne
He tell dem he eh wah no power (why?) 
Just for dark meat alone
He family go sour 

De Queen she might sin she soul
But he muddah go proud when he singing out loud
Melanin to de world
Harry tell dem!
Once yuh go black, (you’ll never) you’ll never go back (Never! Never! Never!)
Once yuh go black (tell dem) you’ll never go back

Harry said Peter, he’s disgusted, disappointed, confused and upset.
But he cannot relate ‘cause he marry to Kate so 
He never eat a black meat yet… Aye!
Harry tell dem! 

Go Harry! Go Harry! Go Harry! 

Is Harry who make de call
He say “Not my wife at all”
It still makes him shudder 
De way dem people did treat his mother
So Harry decide to live his life colour blind 
Well he raise some eyebrows for sure 
When they saw his rasta mother- in- law

De Prince gave up he money 
An’ he pelt away he throne
He tell dem he eh wah no power (why?) 
Just for dark meat alone
He family go sour
De Queen she might sin she soul
But he muddah go proud when he singing out loud
Dark meat to de world
Harry tell dem!

Once yuh go black, (Never!) you’ll never go back (Never! Never! Never!)
Once yuh go black (Never!) you’ll never go back
De Queen say “Harry, my grandson you was always happy wit de rules dat we set”
But she cyah feel what Harry is feelin’ because 
She never eat a black meat yet (Never!)

Go Harry! Go Harry! Go Harry! Go Harry!

De short time in de palace
Enduring all d malice
Some eh want to say it 
But half ah dem who complain’ was racist 
Dey thought dat Harry would’na gone as far as to marry
But de power of de black beauty 
Make him go down on not one but on he two knees…Aye

De Prince gave up he money 
An’ he pelt away he throne
He tell dem he eh wah no power (why?)
Just for dark meat alone
De family still in shock 
An’ de Queen in pure misery
But he muddah go proud because 
Harry is now contributing to black history
Harry tell dem! 

Once yuh go black, (Never!) you’ll never go back (Never! Never! Never!)
Once yuh go black (Never!) you’ll never go back
Harry say, “My love, pack yuh clothes, leh we ship out wit no regret”
Cause dey will never understand why it’s finger licking 
Because dey ever eat a black meat yet… Aye!!
Go Harry! Go Harry! Go Harry! Go Harry!
