Gabby’s lyrics start by criticizing three Caribbean countries for voting against a U.N. resolution to upgrade Palestine’s national status.

Anthony Feteiit, or Mighty Gabby, regarded as the “foremost folk singer in Barbados,” told the audience he wrote the song because he supports Palestine and the Palestinian people’s “right to have a state … and freedom.”

In his song, the folk singer also criticizes the Israeli occupation of several regions of Palestinian territory, constructing walls that keep Palestinians out of their native lands. 

Gabby’s lyrics start by criticizing three Caribbean countries — Barbados, Haiti and the Bahamas — for voting against a 2012 United Nations resolution to upgrade Palestine’s status to be a non-member observer state.

The lyrics are as follows:

Barbados, Haiti and Bahamas
Refuse to behave the way they should
They wouldn’t join the United Nations
In recognizing Palestine nationhood

That’s why I say:

Free Palestine, Free Palestine
Let the wall come down, stop the occupation
Free Palestine, Free Palestine

Let the wall come down, bring peace to the region
