GUYANA MOVES FORWARD


Oh welcome, all ye my merry men, ah!
Come visit this our land of Guyana,
Walk up and down our many strands and seize

Those golden sceneries of Guyanese;
What can a man say? Guyana moves forward!

From the low and arrow shores of our coasts
To the forest-clad mountains of our hosts,
From the water of Corentyne River
To the broad face of the Mount Roraima;
What can a man see?  Guyana moves forward!

Wade up and down all the roaring rivers
And see what are adorning the bowers;
Visit the folks along the coasts and banks
And spend lonely days with the many ranks;
What can a man believe?  Guyana moves forward!

All those long, long day of colonial rule
Was like Parliamentarians going school;
Guyanese are awakened; those are past
And Guyanese are moving onward fast!
What can a man think?  Guyana moves forward!
