I am PNG

The Papua New Guinea (PNG Flag)

I am PNG

The red, black and gold

Red, the color of my heart

Bloodshed, feasts and reconciliation

Black, the dark times I’ve endured

Greed, corruption and criticism

Gold, the smile on my face

My beauty, wealth and glory


I am PNG

Mother of 800 tribes and cultural heritage

Queen of the pacific, pride of my people

Today I celebrate 42 years of independence

My colors flying high, high up

Red, black and gold


My people dance and sing in traditional attires

Tap, tap, tap

The sound of the garamut

Boom, boom, boom

The kundu drums call

Tribes unite

Chanting begins

Making a joyful noise


I am PNG

The red, the black and the gold
