Chorus
With outstanding personalities Trinidad is replete.

Without the Inclusion of MR. H.G. DRYHURST.
Upon this who is who programme we bring him first.
Verse 1
Mr DRYHURST who possesses a genial personality
Appeal to all who met him PERSONALLY
We can assure him we are proud and glad
To have him in our midst in la Belle Trinidad
Verse 2
His colleagues all speak with animation.
of his logic and wonderful ERUDITION
and will go out their way this is no whim.
for the purpose of being in company with him
Verse 3
This song in his honour may spring SURPRISE
but we really could not of done otherwise
Since in this Xmastide Programme who is who
We felt he is entitle to get his clue.

Have crystallised into brilliant realisations
We his interested well wishers ever will
