REAL UNITY
By Machel Montano ft. Drupatee Ramgoonai [2000]

[Any help with the lyrics would be appreciated.]

Spoken: Well this one is about uniting a nation!
Why can't we all get along?
Why we fuss and fight?
Tonight we got to unite
Mister Machel and Drupatee
Wah yuh say?


Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye
Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye.

Hear me now! Say...

Nothing wrong with wining on a Indian girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a Chinee girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a African girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a Syrian girl
Is huge unity [huge unity]

Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye
Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye.

Hear mih story...

Me eating mih curry from Harrylal
Me invite him out to piece ah pelau
Leh we take a little jump in the bacchanal
Take a chook and a wine in the Carnival
------ and he eating dumpling and dahl
Curry crab, fry rice from de Chinee gyal
Now we take a trip down to the Port of Spain
Make a little stop by the Textile King
Pretty in we costume with plenty sequin
'Cause yuh know we love we jumping, jumping
And that is real unity [huge unity].

Drupatee!
Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye
Come again!
Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaaye
Leh me see yuh dancing! Dance together!
Ahaan baat ban jaye.

Unite the nation, unite the nation!
This is jam!...This is jam!
Unite the nation, unite the nation!
This is jam this is a soca tassa jam!

Har kisi ko chahiye tan ka milan
Kash mujhpar aaisa dil aapka bhi aaye
We have to unite the nation!
Baat ban jaye ahaan baat ban jaye

Watch me now! Say!

Every creed and race, we jumping as one
Every creed and race could jump in a band
Love on another, unite the nation
Prime minister, all politician
President, police and also -------
Unite the nation, unite the nation!

Nothing wrong with wining on a Indian girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a Chinee girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a African girl
Nothing wrong with wining on a Syrian girl
Nothing wrong with huge unity [huge unity].

Show me, show me!

Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Unite the nation, unite the nation!
Ahaan baat ban jaye
Sing it again!
Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaaye
Unite the nation, unite the nation!
Ahaan baat ban jaye.

Everybody looking at we

And that is real unity [huge unity].

Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Unite the nation, unite the nation!

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Machel and Drupatee. This performance is still electric after all these years and the message of unity is timeless!

Aap jaisa koi meri zindagi main aaye to baat ban jaye
Ahaan baat ban jaye
If someone like you enters my life,
Then everything will be fine for me
Har kisi ko chahiye tan ka milan
Kash mujhpar aaisa dil aapka bhi aaye
Everyone wants physical attachment
I hope that your heart will also feel like this for me.

"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!
