Boney M.

Boney M.

With an unmistakable style disk comparable to that of groups and artists like the Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, or Donna Summer , Boney M. released in 1977, the singles Daddy Cool , Sunny , a version of Bobby Hebb, Ma baker and Belfast . With that first album, Boney M. came to the top of the lists of half of Europe. In that UK, they achieved their first number one with the Rivers of Babylon (1978), an adaptation for dance floors of an old traditional theme of religious content.

Of Rivers of Babylon were sold two million copies, making it the single highest-selling to date after the Mull of kyntire of Wings. The album contained the single, titled Night flight to Venus (1978), won the sales list for the space of a month. Until 1980, the releases of Boney M. were counted for success: two other albums of theirs reached the number one.

In the mid-eighties, after releasing a single that did not make it into the top thirty, the group disappeared from the music scene quickly and without leaving a trace, in the same way he had entered. Rumors even began meeting at the end of the eighties, but did not become reality. In the nineties, however, released a compilation of hits in a revival of sound disc, and sales returned to skyrocket, a clear indication of the survival of the group beyond his short-lived career.

Boney M. – Ma Baker (Sopot Festival 1979)

Lyrics:

FREEZE! I’m Ma Baker – put your hands in the air,
gimme all your money

  • This is the story of Ma Baker, the meanest cat
    from ol’ Chicago town

She was the meanest cat
In old Chicago town
She was the meanest cat
She really moved them down
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

She was the meanest cat
Oh she was really tough
She left her husband flat
He wasn’t tough enough
She took her boys along
‘cos they were mean and strong

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

They left a trail of crime
Across the U.S.A.
And when one boy was killed
She really made them pay
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

she met a man she liked
she thought she’d stay with him
one day he formed with them
they did away with him
she didn’t care at all
just didn’t care at all

  • Here is a special bulletin.
    Ma Baker is the FBI’s most wanted woman.
    Her photo is hanging on every post office wall.
    If you have any information about this woman,
    please contact the nearest police station…
  • Don’t anybody move! The money or your lives!

One day they robbed a bank
it was their last foray
the cops appeared too soon
they couldn’t get away
and all the loot they had
it made them mighty mad
and so they shot it out
Ma Baker and her sons
they didn’t want to hang
they died with blazing guns
and so the story ends
of one who left no friends

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – to handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – she never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker – but she knew how to die
