BRIAN LONDON “WE LOVE YOU SO” Lyrics


VERSE (1)

The days of colonialism it gone by
For slavery and indentureship we no longer have to cry
Since before “62”; we learn you for me and I for you
We could make it if we try; we could make the grey skies blue
We worked so hard; to be called Trinidad and Tobago
Forget race; when you see ah Trini yuh sure to know
We’re fun loving and free; hard working and all for country
Blessed La Trinity; three in one and one in three
You’re not perfect we know; but is right here we born and grow

CHORUS

Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so
Woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Red, white and black for you we stand
Oh-woe-woe-ooh-woe
All races together in one land
Ah hear the tabular, the sound of steel pan
As we sing God bless our nation
Ah smelling pelau but feeling for roti
And that is why ah love up this country
Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so


VERSE (2)

De days of racism yes it gone by
To go back to your mother land you no longer have to cry
Our forefathers stood with pride; Building this land side by side
Trinbagonians they couldn’t divide; So race had to run and hide
We worked so hard after 1970 and Black Power; It took all Trinbagonians for we to recover
But we never back dow; is all of we who turn it round
Throughout we history; that’s the strength of a Trini
Side-by-side we stand; Regardless of race, creed or religion

CHORUS

Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so
Woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Red, white and black for you we stand
Oh-woe-woe-ooh-woe
All races together in one land
Ah hearing tassa, the sound of iron
As we sing God bless our nation
Crab and dumpling; phoulorie with chutney
And that is why ah love up this country
Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so


VERSE (3)

The days of individualism yes it gone by
You no longer have to stand by yourself and cry
We learn from each other; how to go the exra mile
And another lesson; the community raise the child
Trinbago dey call you; the mother of the Caribbean; Not just your own; but for many others you stand
Like the Pitch Lake and Nylon Pool, firm but know when to keep it cool
Can’t forget discipline; always in yuh teaching
We would never part; The words of de anthem written in we heart

CHORUS

Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so
Woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Red, white and black for you we stand
Oh-woe-woe-ooh-woe
All races together in one land
Ah hearing chutney, the sound of parang
As we sing God bless our nation
Pastelles; ah little piece ah paeme
And that is why ah love up this country
Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so


VERSE (4)

The days of nationalism it ent gone by
All for Trinbago fly de flag high
From Hasley to Kishorn from Toco; we world class and we know
Penny to Wendy; beauty overflow
We never giving up; like de Strike Squad of “89”
2006 the Soca Warriors took us across de line
Let history record this chapter; our first female Prime Minister
Together we’ll make it; one people and one spirit
God Bless our Nation; so better days sure to come

CHORUS

Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so
Woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Red, white and black for you we stand
Oh-woe-woe-ooh-woe
All races together in one land
Ah hear de Sitar, African drums
As we sing God bless our nation
Wantons; ah cold glass ah mauby
And that is why ah love up this country
Cause I sing woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh, woe- ooh- woe
Mother Trinbago
Oh-oh-oh-woo-oh
Yuh know we love you so
