Buju Banton – African Pride lyrics

Thou we struggle
Jah is the ruler and protector of I & I life
All man a bawl (Eh!)

(Ethiopia) Africans with African pride
(Somalia) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For our nation to move forward
(Mozambique) Africans with African pride
(Zambia) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward

What make we can't all unite
Put each man difference aside
Why can't we just come together
Cease from tribal wars and fight
Who knows better must do better
A source of collective insight
May not be exposed to education
But surely knows wrong from right

(Nigeria) Africans with African pride
(Ghana) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
(Zimbabwe) Africans with African pride
(Zaire) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward

Self help with inner motivation
Teach I to be self sufficient
don't want to depend on no one
For attainment of my bread
Oh these words
Oh my calling
Children crying white squall tears
Hunger rampant harvest plenty (ooohwe, whoa)

(Senegal) Africans with African pride
(South Africa) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For any nation to move forward
(Ethiopia) Africans with African pride
(Somalia) Fighting to attain our rights
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
(oh oh oh oh oh oh)

(Unde-lay, Unde-lay, Unde-lay, uh lay lay woi)
(Unde-lay, Unde-lay, Unde-lay, uh lay lay woi)
(Woi)

(Freedom) free Africa
A free free Africa
(Freedom) free Africa
A free indi-Africa
(Freedom) free Africa
Di whole entire Africa
(Freedom) free Africa (Whoa, woy-yo)

(Botswana) Africans with African pride
(Cameroon) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
(Angola) Africans with African pride
(Namibia) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward

What make we can't all unite
Put each man difference aside
Why can't we just come together
Cease dis tribal war and fight
Who knows better must do better
A source of collective insight
May not be exposed to education
But surely knows wrong from right

(Algeria) Africans with African pride
(Mali) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
(Benin) Africans with African pride
(Burundi) Fighting to attain our rights
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward

Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
Want no more shedding of blood
For dis nation to move forward
