Rally Round The West Indies lyrics

For ten long years
We ruled the cricket world
Now the rule seems coming to an end
But down here
Just a chink 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 by as they did before
But when the Toussaints go the Dessalines come
We’ve lost the battle but yet we will win the war

Chorus:
Rally, rally round the West Indies
Now and forever
Rally, rally round the West Indies
Never say never

Pretty soon the runs are going to flow like water
Bringing so much joy to every son and daughter
Say we’re going to 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
Rally, rally round the West Indies

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 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

Chorus

Now they are making restrictions and laws to spoil our beauty
But in the end we shall prevail
This is not just 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 doomed forever to be at somebody’s mercy?
Little keys can open up mighty doors

Chorus
