Gimme A Beat On Your Ding Dong by Ivan Brown Calypsos - Risque Calypso 45 Ep on London #6167. Way out risque Caribbean from the late 50's to early 60's. Music has always used words that have a double meaning or change it subtly so they could get away with risque lyrics. That would keep them out of trouble and able to play their songs on the radio. "I will give you a beat but I'm afraid you will bust a note" or "Darling I will give you a guarantee, that If you give me a beat I will touch the note softly" "And 'der I am wit' me big stick in me hand". They are talking about music right??? A classic risque record that used this same technique was "Sixty Minute Man" by the Dominoes or "Big Long Slidin' Thing" by Dinah Washington.
