Battle Hymn of the Barbados Republic


Battle Hymn of the Barbados Republic

(composed by Owen Arthur)

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of more green
It will line my pockets with dollars from the BLP machine
And if the stupid people vote for this crazy new plan
I’ll be president forever and milk this famous land

They want to know the details? why tell them not a whit
Anyone who challenges me is just a worthless twit
Don’t they know that I’m godliness personified on earth
A Republic’s what we need to increase my personal worth

My progeny all deserve to live their life as rich
Anyone who challenges me is just a son of a bitch
And so my dear voters when you go out to the polls
Pray vote for the Republic and flush away your souls


Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!
MY TRUTH is the only one the newspapers dare print!

    Funny old life this is……..!

    Hugo Chavez penned the same words in Venezuela…….fortunately for COMMONSENSE……Venezuelans in their million rejected such foolishness !

    It is now incumbent for Barbadians to take the same stand when our time comes !

    No REPUBLIC in Barbados as yet :

    ** Yet OWEN was set to tinker with our CONSTITUTION in 2007 !

    ** Yet OWEN in 2005 declared that there would be no REFERENDUM !

    ** Yet OWEN sent armed policemen to our only public HOSPITAL to harass journalist !

    With such DICTATORIAL actions can we risk this NOMAD ( OWEN ARTHUR ) to head Barbados under a REPUBLIC !

    Robert Mugabe……would be the only one IN THE commonwealth please to the PUNCH….!


    This is funny , lolol

    Sadly Jerome this is the manifestation of too many years in power and ultimate control of ones mind body and soul.

    With the length of time that this gang have been in power it attracts an element of gross arrogance and contempt for the ones who put them in office in the first place.

    With it, one will witness a change in style and manner from a caring group to a callous self serving bunch.

    This is exactly what has happened with this lot, each one cashing in on scams and bulking up their bank accounts as if there will be no tomorrow, this encompasses the entire blp administration.

    Can’t wait for bajans to put this lot back in civilian population..can you imagine Owen going to the bank and standing up in a line and looking around at bajans that he shafted for years of their hard earned tax money???(reality is if he loses he will leave Barbados)that’s why men like Sandiford will always be able to go into banks without fear of bajan reprisals to conduct their business,saw him in BNB Speightstown this week,very humble man,Owen will never walk in his shoes.
