Winnnndrushhhhhh
Winnnndrushhhhhh

Hear ye Hear ye
Monarchy Nobility Government and Sundry
Hear ye Hear ye
Atrocities Refugees Commonwealth and Sundry
Hear ye hear ye
The sayings of the scribes
The fulfilling of the tides
"Things fall apart
the centre cannot hold"
"The stone that the builder rejects
becomes the head cornerstone"
What goes around

What a synthesization
What a synchronization
With the high tides of the millennium
Winnnndrushhhhhh

England's Umpire
Of the Empire
Declare All Out
For 1000
Year runs
and more
but West Indies
fated to follow on
the score
1st innings
battling under
discovery slavery
and governing stress
we rendered 400
plus surplus
of the very best
2nd innings
runnings things
shoring up the world war mess
we fulfilling the test
we on 50
and the bowling tight
with no respite
in poor light

Winnnndrushhhhhh
What a cricketization
What a civilisation
What a moralization
With the final overs of the millenium
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Hear ye Hear ye
Seers Believers Deliverers and Sundry
Hear ye Hear ye
The legacy of the tides
the destiny of the cries

Black Britain will reverberate regenerate
reciprocate reactivate
lost faith
from 1998
the 50th Anni ver sa ry
of West Indian vitality
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Humanity
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Universality
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Spirituality
Winnnndrushhhhhh
Eventuality
Winnnndrushhhhhh
