David Rudder Rally Round The West Indies Lyrics


Scroll to the bottom of page for the West Indies Cricket Anthem.



For ten long years
We ruled the cricket world
Now the rule seems coming to an end
But down here
Just a kink in the armour
Is enough, enough to lose a friend

Some of the old generals have retired and gone
And the runs don't come as they did before
But when the Toussaints go
Don't you know the Dessalines come
We've lost the battle but yet we will win the war

As long as we
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Never say never
Pretty soon the runs are gonna flow again like water
Bringing so much joy to each and every son and daughter
Say we're gonna rise again like a raging fire
As the sun shines you know we gonna take it higher

we got to
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever yes
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Stock up the fire

(David Rudder - Rally Round The West Indies Lyrics)

Way Down Under a warrior falls
Michael Holding falls in the heat of the battle
"Michael shoulda left long time!"
I heard an angry brother shout
Caribbean man, that, that, that
that is the root of our trouble
In these tiny theatres of conflict and confusion
Better known as the isles of the West Indies
We already know who brought us here
And who created this confusion
So I'm begging, begging my people please

We got to
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
Rally.. rally round the West Indies
Stock up the fire cuz
Pretty soon the runs are gonna flow again like water
Bringing so much joy to each and every son and daughter
Say we gonna rise again like a raging fire
As the sun shines you know we gonna take it higher

(David Rudder - Rally Round The West Indies Lyrics)


But we gotta what?!
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
Rally... rally round the West Indies
Never say never

Now they making restrictions and laws
to spoil our beauty
But in the end, we shall prevail
This is just not cricket
This thing goes beyond the boundary
It's up to you and me to make sure that they fail
Soon we must take a side or be lost in the rubble
In a divided world that don't need islands no more
Are we doomed forever to be at somebody's mercy
Little keys can open up mighty doors

Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
Rally.. rally round the West Indies
Never say never
Pretty soon the runs are gonna flow again like water
Bringing so much joy to each and every son and daughter
Say we gonna rise again like a raging fire
As the sun shines you know we gonna take it higher

Rally... rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
