Lif yuh head up
Pon yuh two foot, yuh fi tan up.
Nuh mek nuh baddy tun yuh ova
Nuh mek nuh man beat yuh shouldah.
Girl lif yuh head high,
Achieve yuh goals, as far an as wide.
Aim to strive, to do yuh best,
Aim for gold an settle fi notin less.
Chile be di black queen,
Fulfil yuh life, yuh hopes an yuh dreams.
Attain the best with sweat an much tears,
Attain the best you’ve sought thru di years.
Girl you’re no more a child,
You’ve grown a woman,
For success you’ve strived.
