Shades of blue
In every hue
Sailing across the banks
For a successful crossing, we give thanks!
The Bahamian people are warm and friendly,
And as for thanks, they give many,
With them we break Bahamian bread,
The spirit of the Lord we all are fed!
Now sampling a native dish,
Peas and rice are really nice.
Oh yes, please!
Conch in every form,
salad and cracked is the norm.
Crawfish is yummy,
Coconut bread fills our tummy!
Man O War is where they build boats,
Fishing is good with many floats.
Grouper, Mahi Mahi and Hogfish,
Just for sport they bonefish!
Marsh Harbour is the largest port,
Shops there of every sort,
The mail boat brings goods from far away,
Mermaid Reef is where we play!
The Hopetown light
Guides the ships at night.
We go to shore in the dink,
The sand there is very pink!
Little Harbour is an artist's retreat,
Family built by no small feat.
Paintings and sculptures to admire,
A drink at Pete's will light your fire!
Drinks they are aplenty,
Two may cost you twenty,
Goombay Smash and Bahama Mama are just some,
Kalik and Sands will make you a beach bum!
Treasure Cay is the place for me,
Sitting on the beach watching the Abaco Sea,
I love the Bahamas,
Just call me one of the Bahama Mamas!
