You Fill Us All With Pride

(a tribute to the talent and the ’JaZwing’ of Jamaican athletes)

Jamaican spirit, with a heart of gold
Athletes so strong, so proud and bold
Uniting Jamaicans wherever they are
Jamaican sun, Jamaican star

The blazing and amazing, Jamaican team
Fulfilling for all the Jamaican dream
The world celebrates jump and shout
We name Jamaican everybody chat bout

And when wi look and see a how yuh do yuh ting ting
How yuh light up di place wid yuh JaZwing zwing
Pride and joy inna mi hear a weh yuh bring bring
And pony uh chest, a weh dem put yuh bling

You spread your wings your spirit cannot hide (chat bout)
You run your race with god as your guide
Green black and gold the victory in your stride
You fill us all with pride

Sometimes when you bolt out of di block block
Is like di rest of dem a dead from shock, shock
Wi have di talent , di speed and di strength, strength
Fi gi di whole a dem a good donkey length

Dem want fi know a how yuh train and what yuh eat eat
A di cassava an di yam meck yuh dweet dweet
But dat a fi wi secret so meck dem fret
Because they ain’t see nutten yet

You spread your wings your spirit cannot hide
You run your race with god as your guide
Green black and gold the victory in your stride
You fill us all with pride
You fill us all with pride
You fill us all with pride
