lyrics

Woyo

Alkebulan here we come

Negus Negast


For so long I’ve been living down here

In a Babylon.

For long I’ve been down here

In captivity

But I’m gonna break those chains and walk this path of liberty

Yes I’m gonna break those chains and walk this path of liberty

Africa, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Africa, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Black soil, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Black soil, you don’t know what you mean to me!



When they come and steal your gold
In my soul youre my gold africa
They bring the gospel and swap it for your dinner

You close your eyes and your land is gone

Give them the right, Give them the fight,

Give them the light and the sight.

And you'll see what they can do

These young talents from Africa

Give them the fight,

Give them the light,

Give them the sight.

Give them the fight,

Give them the light,

Give them the sight.


Clap mother Africa

Your children are coming home

Clap mother Africa

Wipe those tears in your eyes

Cause your children are coming home

And them coming to stay

Yes your children are coming home

And them coming to stay



Africa, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Africa, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Black soil, you don’t know what you mean to me!

Black soil, you don’t know what you mean to me!



When they come and steal your gold
In my soul youre my gold africa
They bring the gospel and swap it for your dinner

You close your eyes and your land is gone

Give them the right, Give them the fight,

Give them the light and give the sight.

Give them the right, Give them the fight,

Give them the light and the sight.

And you'll see what these sons will

These daughters will do

Yes these young talented



Give them the fight,

Give them the light,

Give them the sight.

about

Men with Bad Manners Middletown, Connecticut

Men With Bad Manners are the infants of the Reggae world. Any of you familiar with Jah roots vibrations? This is the experience they try not to provide but "unfortunately," out of their numerous times on stage, they've failed not to. Their joyous sounds are carriages to tangible euphoria that last for eternity. ... more
