Track Name: Black Zion
Wowowo,

This is Black Mother

Oh Zion I,

Wowowo

Just singing about them

Give them the appreciation

In this life



See those women carrying, dem little children
And on their back dem holding,

Working tools
Tell you builders of the families are the builders of the nation
If each family is moral and great
Then every nation is so great

But some fool when they see these women

They think that it's their duty to carry

The heavy family burden

To wake up early in the morning

Forsake their nightly comforts
Task themselves with daily chores

And never wearing in their applications
Don't mind these ingrate-ite fools…



Wowowo

Wowowo

Talking of black women

Giving them appreciation



Come down come down

Come down come down

Come down come down

Come down come down

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Come down come down

Every day when you come around

Come down come down

Come down come down

Can't wait till when she gets old

Then I'll sing to her lullabies

That she sang to me when I was young

Can't wait till when she gets old

Then I'll sing to her lullabies

That she sang to me when I was young

And when I get sick

She is my foundational brick



Oh mama oh mama

Oh mama oh mama





Come down come down

Come down come down

Come down come down

Come down come down

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Black Zion Black Zion

Come down come down

Every day when you come around

Come down come down

Come down come down



Oh yeah yeah



Builders of the nation

Are the builders of the family
If each family is moral and great
Then the whole nation is so great

I risk my health and dignity too

Yes who Am I?

The last time I was in school was three months ago

I didn’t have to wait for the Bursar man to come around

To tell me where to I was bound

Who Am I?



Who Am I? Who am I?

Track Name: Midnight Run
They say in a distance
That your touch is close
But with you in my sight

I can hold you closer
But for seven night and six days

I'll wait for you
Until the end of midnight

No one is to break-down the rule



No one is to break-down the rule…

My darling is an antelope

Hurt by a hunter
The blame is mine

Though we share the pain
And as she goes with a broken heart

No one is to deny
The cause and longing

That she carries within



No one is to deny

The longing that she carries within

You didn't have to run
You didn't have to run
To leave this heart as it is
Now my desires are chained in the past
Frequenting old comforts and time

Never wanting to live again

Midnight run Midnight run
The dust from your runaway path have settled

In my eyes

Yes they’ve settled in my eyes

Oh yes they’ve

Oh Midnight run



And they never wanting to leave again

And they never wanting to leave again



They say in a distance
That your touch is close
But with you in my arms

I will hold you closer
But for seven night and six days

I'll wait for you
Until the end of midnight

No one is to break-down the rule
