In your struggle for love
Hate struck you down
But in so many hearts
You're still around
You freed so many souls
From the depths of despair
But we will never forget
The burdens you had to bare

Chorus
Oh Marcus we love you
You never shy from the things you had to do
Strength and courage pulled many through yeah
Oh boy

Repeat chorus

Paving a different way
Was the order of the day
And I'm so glad to say
Your teachings are here to stay
The wicked cast you aside

But your missions have never died
It lives on and on and on

Repeat chorus 2x

You can't stop the? Marc, oh no
You achieved the best of a bad situation
Gave hope to the people of the nation
Yes you did
You achieved the best of a bad situation
Gave hope to the people of the nation
Yes you did, yes you did

Scattered all over the place, living in disgrace
The people have lost their ways
Their minds have gone astray
Sheer hysteria
Told us look to Africa
To be our rightful home again

Repeat chorus 2x

Look to Africa
Boy, Marc, you do ooh
