Dem ah celebrate Kingston we all agree

It is a powerful city for you and me

Everything deh ah town, every sin to savings tin

wife, husband, sweetheart, furniture, dress and ring

Jamaica Kingston have big celebration!

but me long fi head gear salvation

sun and rain too hot and cold fi me

need bus stop shade to shelter we

It not good enough fi vote to protect the Cockpit land

and left out care for the living, people foot and hand

de elements deh bus we shirt

it deh dry up we merriment and mirth

Try meck National heroine No: 2, Miss Lou

Look at she drama and profound literature too

even when people cuss and seh Kingston dirty and gritty

de way she document Jamaica capital you convince it a Golden city

Kingston is the bedrock of the economy where all intersect

Every Jamaican endeavour, enterprise is in Kingston city it meck

From the peasantry from parishes all across the island

Jamaican Economic, intellectual, spiritual discourse reign on pigstail pan

Helen-Ann Elizabeth
