LYRICS

Verse 1

Steel pan is ah wonder of the world
Ah telling man, woman, boy and girl
D steel pan care take of me
Yes it discipline me
So right now this story must be told
I meet ah pan man just recently
He tell me pan is he family
So man you must mention
If wasn’t for de pan
Right now I don’t know where I would be.

Chorus

Sometimes I wonder!
Sometimes I wonder!
What life would be
Like if I never played ah pan
No Panorama!
Or pan yard fever!
Ah can’t imagine life without D steel pan
Is pan night and day!
Didn’t go astray
Thank you for D great experience
Pan is wonderful Pan is Beautiful
So I don’t wonder no more.

Hook

Sometimes I wonder!
Sometimes I ponder!
What life would be like!
If wasn’t for pan!
Would it be better!
Or even sweeter!
Steel pan all over!
Sometimes I wonder.

Verse 2

As I listened quite amazingly
To what this pan man was telling me
With pan he saw the world
Ah good wife, boy an ah girl
Pan takes me through all my pain and strife
Ah still working hard musically
Reaching for your goals is not easy
So to every pan man
And all D pan woman
Don’t give up on all your dreams I say.

Chorus

Verse 3

As you can see pan is good to me
Now I can give back effortlessly
It’s through dedication
Is how I stick with pan
Sharing with all people of this world
So we must keep reaching for the top
Cause there’s no room for us to give up
To all who has pave the way
Thank you with ah Ramajay
Now let all them steel bands come and play.
