Verse 1

I’m ah Pan Woman
An’ I get these melodies
It keep captivating me
This eh no lie
As ah musician
I can understand
Music flowing with passion
It’s just ah next creation
Just like this melody sweet
Young and old moving to the beat
My admiration
And love for the steelband
Sometimes yuh hit frustration
But no monies...


In this lovely nation
Land of Calypso an’ Pan
As ah true Trinbagonian
The pride and joy of ah nation
Ah touch of class ask any panman
Pan Pioneers would die
Forever pan flies high
Ah work of art through inspiration

Verse 2

The role of the steelband in our society
Helping to build comminutes
Throughout this land
With determination
And the right vision
Getting the youths’ attention
Giving them some direction
Keep young people off of the streets
With ah rhythm sounding so sweet
Take guns out their hands
An’ give them the steelpan
Develop ah strong foundation, for all to see



Out of pain came forth The Pan
Given to us by almighty hands
Pride of Trinbagonians
Known as the latest invention
Pan to the world
From our soul
Let this story be told
Inspiration joy to the nation

Verse 3

Thanks must be given
To those who made our history
Tuners from this country
Some of whom died
Their courage and wisdom
To choose the steeldrum
We must always make mention
Give thanks for their creation
From tamboo bamboo take to the streets
To Steelbands sounding full and complete
It’s just my intention
For recognition
’Cause of their innovation, it sounding so sweet
