Where we live and work today

Vines and huge trees were in the way

Now on this fertile land

Our home and farmland stand

Against the trees and soil [we] fought a battle

And now we produce poultry, pigs and cattle

Hard work both by day and night

Is our way to make production bright.

Through the sun and rain we work fearlessly

To occupy the fertile land productively.


There is so much that can be done

We find no time to idle around

We do provide time for play and fun

Cause these are things that should be done

However we will never forget

There is still room for improvement yet

With ha[rd wo]rk as the days go by

We’ll achieve the goals before our eye

Our home would be a great community

Cause we work co-operatively in unity

And without the thoughts of going away

This happy place will be our home to stay.
