Volume 1



Jamaica National Anthem
Eternal Father, Bless our Land,

Guard us with thy mighty hand,

Keep us free from evil powers,

Be our light through countless hours,

To our leaders, great defender,

Grant true wisdom from above,

Justice, truth be ours forever,

Jamaica, land we love,

Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love
Teach us true respect for all,

Stir response to duty's call,

Strengthen us the weak to cherish,

Give us vision lest we perish,

Knowledge send us Heavenly Father,

Grant true wisdom from above,

Justice, truth be ours forever,

Jamaica, land we love,

Jamaica, Jamaica, Jamaica, land we love

The Jamaica National Flag
New Symbolism as of 1996 - "Hardships there are but the land is green and the sun shineth is the symbolism of the Flag. Black symbolizes the strength and creativity of the Jamaican people ; Gold, for natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and Green stands for hope and agricultural resources".

Original Symbolism - "Hardships there are but the land is green and the sun shineth" is the symbolism of the Flag. Black stands for hardships overcome and to be faced ; Gold, for natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and Green stands for hope and agricultural resources".











Ackee the Jamaican National Fruit
Ackee (Blighia sapida). Whilst not indigenous to Jamaica, this fruit has remarkable historic associations. It was originally imported from West Africa, probably brought here in a slave ship, and now grows luxuriously producing each year large quantities of edible fruit.

Ah Ah AH Ah Ahhhhhhh !

Only you alone can quench this here thirst

My night nurse, oh gosh

Oh the pain it’s getting worse

I dont wanna see no doc

I need attendence from my nurse around the clock

She’s the one, the only remedy

Refrain

Infirmière de nuit

Tanya Stephen

Germaican


Intro

I say if we never, get a chance to be together go with jah. Tanya loves ya.


Chorus

It is a pity. You already have a wife

And me dun have a man inna mi life. Rude boy, it is a pity yo (eh eh eh)

(repeat)it is such a pity

Verse 1

I would a like one a these mornings to wakeup

And find your face on a pillow lying right next to mines

I would a cut out the partying, the smoking and the rum

And bust an extra wine and make we, seed up a son

Well every time I fantasize me see your lips me see your eyes

You trigger finger do some things tha left the rude gal hypnotized

For you is just a thing, just another little fling

But for me this is heaven and the angel dem a sing


Verse 2

Fe buck you up inna public and cant even touch

It really fuck me up because me check fe you so much

The respect whe me have fe you woman, fe your kids

Believe me rude boy me criss, a no maty this

Who knows, maybe one day the world will be evolved enough

Will share you in a civilized world between the 2 of us

But until then me would a love see you again

Me know we have to play it like the stupid rules of men
Verse 3

Say, meet me round the corner Avoid Metsy & Lorna

Me know dem 2 a dem, theyre guess informer

Im not starving for sex now, nah bawl out next now

But the way you flex really beat my interest

Yo, the you that people see, ah not you way me loving

And the you that dey with me go much deeper than skin

I dont know exactly what it is youre feeling

But I wish this was a permanent thing

Verse 4

me know say you belong to she, you know say me belong to him

Me wouldnt wan to diss your queen, me would a never diss me king

But when you play pump up riddim, and when me feel you waist a swing

You left me inna turmoil you have me head a spin

It really make me sad to waste so much water

I think the 2 a we can make a beautiful daughter

But it will be selfish to one innocent little youth

To bring her come and cant (tell her the truth) *2

Me say, go with jah, I will always love ya

Say if we never, get a chance to be together, go with jah




Intro

Je dis que si nous n’avons pas de chance d’être tout les deux, allons vers Jah. Tanya t’ aime.


Refrain

C’est dommage. Tu as déjà une femme.

Et moi je n’ai pas d’homme dans ma vie. Vialin garçon, C’est trop dommage (eh eh eh)

(repeat) C’est vraiment trop dommage.


Couplet 1

Je voudrais me réveiller un de ces matins

Et trouver ta tête sur l’oreiller tout près de moi

Je m’arrêterai de faire la fête, de fumer, de boire du ruhm

Et abandonner le petit verre de vin pour bien élever un enfant

Chaque fois que je fantasme je vois tes lèvres et tes yeux


Pour toi ce n’est pas grand-chose, juste une autre chose

Mais pour moi c’est le paradis et l’ange
