On the beach

From all over they coming See them parking every where All kinds of food they bringing Rum, sweet drinks and cold beer See them on the beach walking Under the Trinidad sun And when you hear them talking Its trini people having fun See them in the sea bathing Salt water in their hair Some by the coconut tree drinking All around a friendly atmosphere And though they don’t know each other They all has a positive attitude Trinidadians are free sprit people They are always in a happy mood In beaches all around the country This is the scene everywhere Trinidad people like their beach lime They coming from far and near Shirley in the front seat eating Chicken pelau and potato salad Rianna making mango chow That girl like her pepper to bad Riad get drunk in a party last night Now he drinking coconut water Roger tells him “boy drinks some carib If you want to recover And with the trade winds blowing Dry coconut falling on the ground And you hear all kind of music playing Soca, chutney, and Indian song A woman Curry Duck cooking on a fire Gosh it smelling good from over here She takes out some in a plate and calls me Trinidad people like to share Chacachacare, Chaguaramas, Chagville Blanchisseuse, Las Cuevas, Maracas Bay Quinam, Cedros, Manzanilla,mayaro Just a few beaches, people go to everyday Trinidad and Tobago is a paradise With the most friendly people in the world The islands of the caribs and the arawaks Of which lots of stories have been told Some welcome all you visitors And enjoy the mysteries of the islands It’s the country I was born in And I’m proud to be a Trinidadian
