LYRICS

Verse 1

A magical instrument was born in the 20th century
And oh what an instrument to behold
And It went through transformations over the century
Now the instrument is played all over the world
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
Singing praises of the invention
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
Singing the melodies played on pan

Chorus

Steel pan is fantastic
It's really magnetic
For me the sound is heavenly
Steel pan is terrific
It's really eclectic
The way it plays a melody
When the panist do so
And run a crescendo
It does bring the crowd to fever pitch
When I hear the steel pan playing it is poetic
Looking for a word to describe it...
Aahhh.... it is Panrific

Verse 2

This magical instrument has been through an evolution
From a single pan to a steel band orchestra
Over the years some sort of revolution
So being a panist no longer has a stigma
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
Singing praises of the invention
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
Singing the melodies played on pan

Chorus

Verse 3

This magical instrument on its journey to glory
Resiliency and creativeness was unfold
An instrument that was born out of oil and slavery
Oh what a history to be told
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
And the voices seem to emanate from above
Hallelu hallelu hallelu I can hear pan angels singing
Here's to you from T&T with love

Chorus
