CARIFESTA
you've heard of Festivities
of such kind,
Fiestas and games and other
entwined
It's a very-ganza you'll
remember
Throughout your life, so
joyful and tender.
We're proud of the creator
of this stand
A creator that's worthy of
his hand
Should we not opine to such
grade hence forth
This birth of Unity will wane
as nought.
T'is the union of countries
far and near
Who's rep'sentatives are
partaking here
From beyond the Ocean blue
they will come
By ships, planes and evena-
foot, along.
So let's be on, wisely and
Carifest
With who nmay come e'en
those far past the West
For Carifesta is not just a
name
But a Motto that'll forever
carry fame.
Caribbean spirit will never
die
If we should collaborate bye
and bye
For here's the first step to
play togethb,
And so toil and integrate
forever.
Since Un'ty should be our
0oal and station
Let us foment not just as
one nation
But one family in our
commonwealth
When we'll secure il-
Power, strength" and
wealth.
