Phil Ochs – Bwatue lyrics

Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu ya bolingo, bwatu a salongo(Canoe of love, canoe of work)
Bwatu e, bwatu ya ndenge moko (Canoe, canoe of the same way)
Bwatu ya bolingo, bwatu a salongo(Canoe of love, canoe of work)
Bwatu e, bwatu ya ndenge moko (Canoe, canoe of the same way)

Ebale ezali molayi(The river is so long)
Mayi ekotiola mbangu(Water is running down)
Ebale ezali molayi(The river is so long)
Mayi ekotiola mbangu(Water is running down)

Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)

Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu ya bolingo, bwatu a salongo (Canoe of love, canoe of work)
Bwatu e, bwatu ya ndenge moko (Canoe, canoe of the same way)
Bwatu ya bolingo, bwatu a salongo(Canoe of love, canoe of work)
Bwatu e, bwatu ya ndenge moko (Canoe, canoe of the same way)

Ebale ezali molayi(The river is so long)
Like the river of wine
Mayi ekotiola mbangu(Water is running down)
Making like the rain
Ebale ezali molayi(The river is so long)
Taking the time, broken the chain
Mayi ekotiola mbangu(Water is running down)

Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
Not too far to ride
Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
For the freedom sign
Tonana na bokasi(Let's paddle with strength)
We cried...
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
Bwatu e e, bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)

Bwatu ya bolingo ekomi na ngambo(Canoe of love has
arrived in the other side)
Tonani makasi tokomi na ngambo (We have paddled with strength
and have arrived in the
other side)
Bwatu ya salongo ekomi na ngambo(Canoe of love has
arrived in the other side)
Tonani makasi tokomi na ngambo (We have paddled with strength
and have arrived in the
other side)
Bwatu ya bolingo bwatu a salongo(Canoe of love, canoe of work)
Bwatu e e bwatu ya ndenge moko (Canoe, canoe of the same way)

Bwatu e e Bwatu e e(Canoe, Canoe)
