Jamaica our native land

Have you forgotten your native land, the days when our ancestors sweat and harvest? crop with their hands, Jamaica our black Negro land the name itself is a brand Have you forgotten the Jamaican national bird, our charming doctor bird? can you remember that national dish we call ackee and saltfish out of many one people, Jamaica human race, a land, a wonderful place where human beings express their smile on their happy face Have you forgotten the national heroes who fought for us and thus who died for us, can you remember this all, these seven national heroes and one heroine who stood tall, although our country was small these were the one's who made it remain still and not fall The last sentence in the national anthem I shall recall Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica land we love created by the heavenly father above.
