Things That The Nation Needs [Song]

THINGS THAT THE NATION NEEDS
By Lord Pretender

People always writing, complaining
But them same people ent doing nothing
Everyday they writing, complaining
But not a soul ent doing nothing
Criticism is their sole intention
They ent offering no kind of solution
As a concerned citizen of this nation
I think it's time I give you my opinion.

First thing on the agenda that we have to remember
Is a LOVE for the nation
We must endeavour to work together to beat this recession
All ah we facing the trouble, leh we live like one people
If we want to succeed...ah tell you
Each obvious indeed
These are the things that the nation need.

We have people of integrity
To run the affairs of this country
Both opposition and government
IF they only recognise their commitment
By righting the wrongs in everyone's favour
And cut out all this fighting with one another
And work with the utmost dedication
For the betterment of the nation

And first thing on the agenda that they have to remember
Is a LOVE for the nation
They must endeavour to work together to beat this recession
They must bury the hatchet and work as one unit
Be loyal in word and deed...tell them
They better take heed
These are the things that the nation need.

For we to have proper administration
We must forget political affiliation
Talent wasting in the nation only causing endless frustration
So anyone with special talent to offer
Don't turn them down and leave my people to suffer
Is then and only then, this nation would be
On the road to progress and productivity.

First thing on the agenda that we have to remember
Is a LOVE for the nation
We must endeavour to work together to beat this recession
And in the near future leh we promote we own culture
Is we have to plant the seed
Man, ah spell it out for you
Ah hope you could read
These are the things that the nation need.

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Lord Pretender.

Congratulations to Trinidad and Tobago on this strong and peacefully delivered message to ourselves and to those who are allowed the privilege of leadership.

Our work has not ended. Be vigilant, be vocal, participate.

We can leave nothing completely in the hands of others, especially those who try to convince us that we must. We should know this now if we didn't before.

This is OUR country and its future will be as bright as WE make it.

Blessings, blessings, blessings, T&T!

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!

All the best to Trinidad and Tobago. May the leaders govern with wisdom and make the welfare of all the citizens their goal.

Thank you, Louis, for adding your best wishes here. I know that you have never stopped caring about the land of your birth and there are many of us outside who watched the results unfold last night (I was glued to ctntworld.com) and felt proud of Trinbago for the peaceful manner in which this was accomplished. I hope that in time, all the Trinbagonians who are dismayed by these developments will in time move beyond political/racial affiliations and will look back on this as having been a victory for ALL.
Blessings
