Verse 1

This lady came here, all the way from England.
She wanted to know --- the birth place of the Steelband.
She told immigration that is the reason she came down.
She eh staying long, she came for Panorama --yes ---.
Long time I hearing about this Bacchanal.
People telling me-- it is part of the Carnival
Well look it so happened, that day was Panorama.
She end up in a band in the Savannah.

I came to hear Panorama “you see” Panorama “hear me.”
That is why I came down to Trinidad.
I want to hear Panorama “she say” Panorama “today”
Let me go and show them I could Dingolay.
I want to hear “Pan” playing their sweet melody.
“Pan” look ah don’t want you touch me.
Stop buzzing around me in the band.
I came to hear “Pan” ah doh want you hold meh hand.
“Pan” try your best and understand.
Leh meh go ,I came to listen to “Pan.”

Verse 2

From band to band the English woman was moving
Totally mesmerised by the music she was hearing.
She said look Laddie I heard Panorama in England.
But I must admit there is no comparison-----No ----
Look down the drag it have people jumping.
Yes they palancing as if it is Jouvert morning.
People of all color, creed and race having a good time.
My gully, a sweet Panorama lime.


Verse 3
If you see people watching this London lady
Jumping in the steel bands just like a Trini.
Every band that past she waving the British Flag.
like an official moving up and down on the drag.---yeh--
Then from a distance she heard a big band.
Playing Large is Large, like the flag woman she took charge.
Here comes the band I love then she breakaway.
Showing the crowd she could really Dingolay.
