FDR In Trinidad (Album Version) - Van Dyke Parks

 

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

Between Trinidad and America

 

We understand that the president had just been

On a visit to Brazil and the Argentine

With Mr Cordell hull in attendance

There they took part in a peace conference

 

Struck by his modest style high

Famous roosevelt smile

In fact everybody was glad

To welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad

 

We were privileged to see the fraight democratic

President of the great republic

With his charm and his genial personality

And his wonderful urbanity

 

To stop war and atrocity

The world safe for democracy

 

The greatest event of the century

In the interest of suffering humanity

 

Port of Spain threw open her gates

 

To the president of the United States

In fact everybody was glad

To welcome Roosevelt to Trinidad
