UNA CANCIÓN POR DÍA

Roosevelt in Trinidad






When Roosevelt came to the land of the hummingbird
Shouts of welcome were heard
When Roosevelt came to the land of the hummingbird
Shouts of welcome were heard
His visit to their island is bound to be
An epoch in local history
Definitely marking the new era
Keeping Trinidad in America

Enthusiasm and jubilation
Was evinced by the entire population
Friendship for the U.S.A. was shown
And from a house the stars and stripes were flown
For the state to open the gate
To the president of these United States
In fact everybody was glad
To welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad

We are privileged to see the democratic
President of the great republic
With his charming and genial personality
And his wonderful urbanity
We were struck by his modest style
And we were intrigued by the famous Roosevelt smile
No wonder why everybody was glad
To welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad

We understand that the president has just been
On a visit to Brazil and the Argentine
With Mr. Cordell Hull in attendance
They took part in a peace conference
To stop war and atrocity
And make the world safe for democracy
The greatest event of the century
In the interest of suffering humanity
