Dis Place Nice Lyrics by Anthony Emrold Phillip 'Brother Valentino' You talk 'bout a place Where the people are carefree living It is such a place Of fun loving, spreeing and feting Tis the land where people Don't care if Ash Wednesday fall on Good Friday Man they love to struggle In this happy, go-lucky way It's blockorama, feteorama And just now is masorama So the foreigner come for Carnival And he telling heself after he had a ball Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise Mr. Foreigner in La Trinity The people have a Carnival mentality Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise They are not serious, very few conscious So I cannot agree with my own chorus Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise But I'll hear some people talking about Revolution Day Changes on the way To live now is high Cost of living these days is the real thing The clothes that they buy To expensive parties they going They would leave their belly And buy clothes to go and waste down their body Some of them eh have place to shelter But they own big time motor car And wearing crinoline and elevator shoes So how come now they digging blues Down town Frederick Street on Friday evening Is mas' and fashion parade you seeing Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise So the big man say they come out to play Well is double the price they go have to pay Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise Then the merchants send prices to the moon And the chorus keep singing a weird weird tune Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise I hear my sister talking about the Revolution Day Fire on the way They born in a land The better parts controlled by the alien They fill the pockets Of Portuguese, Chinese and Syrians Trinidadians is who should own land Now is the time to make the land their possession But their sense of taste could just trace To all them fancy show case So the business man, he blow their mind And is his dollars them got to find Trinidad is nice for men like Sabga Kirpalani, Maharaj and Y de Lima Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise Business expanding, more banks they building So is the capitalists and them who should sing Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise And like the slave masters want to bring back the whip And the chorus singing like they on a trip Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise But I hear my sister talking about Revolution Day Fighting on the way They don't know their worth Like they haven't a sense of value They don't know their rights Even that they cannot argue Three quarters of a million people Cannot get up and do something 'bout the struggle But could plan for the next holiday To fete their lives away And forgetting that they own the soil Of which their fore parents toil For the people who form the constitution laws For the oppressors and foreign investors Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise Amoco and Shell business did went swell On your oil them foreign parasites dwell Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise Yet the song I sing like if I hearing The chorus singing 'God save the king' Trinidad is nice, Trinidad is a paradise But the people getting ready for this Revolution day Changes on the way Brother Valentino tells it as it is.
