Green grasses

Green grasses
Look how tall they've grown
From germination to maturity
So recent were they sown
A pasture of beauty
Green leaves, green stalk
Another generation of green
The lush vegetation of patriotism
The sun smiles!
The chlorophyll on their faces
Photosynthesis!
They'll never fail in their race for success
Green portrait
Born to the same soil
Now they follow our lead
Soon they'll flower and breed new seeds

Grenadian borns
Renowned as Greens
How wonderful do they look
From Princess Alice to The General
'Concepcion'
Green boys, green girls
What a generation!
Such love for our little paradise
Living under the light of Christ
Kirani James, Rondell Bartholomew
We cannot be compromise
Role models to the new offspring
I wonder what they'll bring
Green grasses
