New civilization, new civilization
All over this land, all over this land
Small ones having smaller and smaller
Small ones having smaller and smaller
New civilization

New civilization, new civilization
All over this land, all over this land
Small ones having smaller and smaller
Small ones having smaller and smaller
New civilization

Come, my brother, come help me
Come, my sister, come help me
Help me sing this song, sing along, sing along
Sing along, sing along
(New civilization, new civilization, new civilization)

The Africans and the Indians
The Africans and the Indians
Never throw stones against one another
Never throw stones against one another

The Africans and the Indians
The Africans and the Indians
Never throw stones against one another
Never throw stones against one another
New civilization, all over this land

Oh, what a disgrace, amongst the human race
Amongst the human race
Oh, what a disgrace, amongst the human race
Amongst the human race
(New civilization)
Talking about racist, talking about racist

Come, my brother, come help me
Come, my brother, come help me
Help me sing this song
Help me sing this song

Sing along, sing along, sing along, sing along

New civilization, new civilization
All over this land

Let the music play, let the music play
(New civilization)
Reggae music a fe play, reggae music a fe play
(New civilization)
Let it play, let it play, let it play over this land

Let the music play, let the music play
(New civilization)
Reggae music a fe play, reggae music a fe play
(New civilization)
All over this land
(New civilization, new civilization)
