Brian London "Celebrate" Calypso Lyrics


BRIAN LONDON "CELEBRATE"

VERSE 1
This is a time for redemption, so people gather round
(Come and celebrate, I say come and celebrate)
Its one Caribbean movement, one Caribbean vision
(Celebrate, I say come and celebrate)
Joined by the waters of the Caribbean sea
We broke the chains of slavery
One people, history and identity
Created by the hands of the almighty

CHORUS
One love, come sing with one voice
I say this is the time for true unity
I hear the voices singing in Antigua
AH drum play in Grenada
In Barbados the Tamarind shake
As sweet Caribbean music they make
Then in Trinidad and Tobago,
I hear a sweet steel pan play
And as I listen closer,
I hear all my Caribbean people say
One love, with one voice
Through unity, one Caribbean Community
“Come, come sing with we”





"CELEBRATE"

VERSE 2
I see your land overflowing, I see your land filled with fruit
(Come and celebrate, I say come and celebrate)
But your brother’s land is empty and you know that is the truth
(Give and celebrate, I say give and celebrate)
We must all lend a little hand
To help our brother grow
Let truth and love be the seeds you sow
And you’ll see that your baskets would overflow

CHORUS
One love, come sing with one voice
I say this is the time for true unity
I hear the voices in Dominica
AH drum play in St Lucia
Belize and Bahamas the Tamarind shake
As sweet Caribbean music they make
When I listen in Guyana
I hear the sound of sweet tassa play
And as I listen closer,
I hear all my Caribbean people say
One love, with one voice
Through unity, one Caribbean Community
“Come join sing with we”





BRIAN LONDON "CELEBRATE"

VERSE 3
One movement and one people, one Caribbean community
(Come and celebrate, I say come and celebrate)
Remember you are your brother’s keeper, as a part of this family
(Come and celebrate, I say come and celebrate)
Let unity be the foundation
And part of the master plan
Unity is strength, spread it from land to land
For a Caribbean divided can never stand


CHORUS
One love, come sing with one voice
I say this is the time for our liberty
I hear the voices singing in Surinam
AH drum play in Montserrat
St Kitts and Nevis the Tamarind shake
As sweet Caribbean music they make
From St Vincent to Jamaica
I hear the sweet sounds of reggae
And as I listen closer,
I hear all my Caribbean people say
One love, with one voice
Through unity, one Caribbean Community
“Come, come sing with we”
