The African Case

From every hill
On every mountain
In the ocean deep
Through the rainbow above

Our shout were loud and clear
The shout of Africans in the Sahara
Our shout that deserves recognition,
Was put aside by our foes

We have seen what they can do
What can they do?
They can kill all birds to make way for elephant to fly.
They can make the eagle to swim the ocean

But we cannot do this!
We can’t have food on our tables
We can’t have cloths to put on
We can’t have shelter to cover our heads

No road to drive our cars
No school to learn
No land to farm
And no one to call my brother
No government to take responsibility
