Where do you come from man, you come from anywhere?
You come from country where water flows free to the sea

I heard the English said, you got the best of it
When raleigh washed up and found gold all in his hands

There was a woman who gave all her pearls
The ocean rolling, rolled them from the new world

And in the morning, rebel, you call
But you know, he's only breaking the law

There was a hill coolie, and a transatlantic slave,
There came a day when they broke away from all their chains

In country tempers run like Caribbean sun
And the water flows, Gyasi when he went home

There was a woman who gave all her pearls
The ocean rolling, rolled them from the new world

And in the morning, rebel, you call
But you know, he's only breaking the law

There was a woman who gave all her pearls
The ocean rolling, rolled them from the new world

And in the morning, rebel, you call
But you know, he's only breaking the law
