celebrating the Soca Warriors; Western Main Road St James, Trinidad - 2006

so when we heard our team would represent,
we spilled out into the street to share consent;
red white and black, the colours we fly;
every one, young and old, our spirits high;
from then on, every foot applied to a ball
sensed a dream - a youngster answering the call
the Soca Warriors to Germany they went;
World Cup fever we never regret, the energy spent,
