Israel Kamakawiwo'ole – Living In A Sovereign Land lyrics

There's a celebration on the palace grounds
People need To know, what's going down
There's a proclamation from the powers that lead
Our island nation has got to be free
Living in a sovereign land
Living in a sovereign land

Island people come together as one
For future generations under the sun
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of love
Living in a sovereign land
Living in a sovereign land

Our children deserve To know
What went down a hundred years ago
You can pay the man, you can take the land
But you can't take the truth away
E ola, living in a sovereign land
E ola, living in a sovereign land

E ola, living in a sovereign land
E ola, living in a sovereign land

Bruddas an titas, brown, yellow and white
Time to do what you know is right
What's been taken must be returned
Give our children what they deserve
E ola, living In a sovereign land
E ola, living In a sovereign land

Our children deserve To know
What went down a hundred years ago
You can pay the man, you can take the land
But you can't take the truth away
E ola, living In a sovereign land
E ola, living In a sovereign land

E ola, living In a sovereign land
E ola, living In a sovereign land
E ola, living In a sovereign land
E ola, living In a sovereign land
