Caribbean Greeting                               music & lyric Chris James '83


Doomed to be encountered

By an alien force from space

Only then will we realize

That we’ve left it much too late


People will greet people

Whether they’re black or even white

And we will stand there side by side

United as we fight


But it won’t be here tomorrow

And it won’t be here next year

And I won’t be there on Christmas Day

I won’t be there to sing


Politicians busy

Trying to make their point of view

While Africans are out there starving

When they’re just like me and you





Caribbean Greetings

From a girl that’s far away

I wish I could be with you there

And I wish it could be today
