Almamegretta – Black Athena lyrics
Sienteme bbuono chiammame cu' o nomme mio nun tengo ggenio 'e pazzia' se pazzea cu'a panza chiena 'a mia? Vacanta 'a verit? Tu me hai purta' rispetto si me vide tenimmo 'e stessi nonni nun me cride? Chi songo?
I' songo l'ommo niro ca vene 'a dint' 'a jungla songo 'o figlio 'e lumumba si nun me saje
Piglia' songo 'na bomba e si nun saje ca? 'a casa mia ca? Accumminciata 'a storia rinfriscate 'a memoria

Original man you got to understand we were all africans yes the knowledge of myself makes me a better self so pick that dusty book up off the shelf and read the truth read the truth science was created in timbuctu center of the world is africa the rythm of the drum comes from africa

Look back look back athena was black athena was black if you look back ma te hai visto bbuono int' 'o specchio ma te hai maje guardato 'nfaccia look back athena was black athena was black if you look back ma te hai visto bbuono dint' 'o specchio 'e che culore tiene 'a faccia

Realise visualize open your eyes truth and lies we will despise oppressed must rise. Ht nt neit tanit tanussit athena te 'o sto dicenno mo si nun ce hai maje penzato primma 'o munno? Tunno e 'a quanno? Tunno gira
'a gente sienteme bbuono tiene mente te pare ca nun stevo bbuono 'a casa mia a te pare bella chesta vita mia se sape ca chi piglia sempe po' adda da' pe' te? 'o mumento 'e spartere pe' mme chillo 'e piglia'.
