Mama Africa

Buju Banton

You see all dem people whey you see over deh so

Don't pay dem nuh mind

Dem is just one set a people who have nothing to do

With the development and upliftment of I and I as a race

But watch this

Well it's Anthony B, Buju Banton and Garnett Silk

Mama Africa, Mama Africa


Hello Mama Africa

How are you?

I'm feeling find

And I hope you're fine too

Hello Mama Africa

How are you?

I hope when you hear these words

Your grays turn blue, grays turn blue

Verse 1:

I will break these chains

Of their subhuman bondage

Scatter all the remains

With negative thoughts in diverse places

Posses the state of mind to declare anytime

Say Mama Africa a yours and mine

Own a continent no island never deh pon mi mind

This was well-orchestrated plan from long time

Soon I shall be home and everything will be fine

When you see the lion running wild know that is a sign

Of an ancient order royal and divine

With all the natural resource to satisfy mankind


Verse 2:

Who say so?

Marcus Mosiah

Listen Mr. B

Marcus tell I

Black starliner gonna carry us home

I know it's true

What will you do you don't wanna be left alone

I've been waiting watching from the distant shore

At every passing vessel my teardrops flow

Could it be in my direction it goes

Beaulah land beckons trod home trod home


Verse 3:

The sweetest things are there to be found

The golden sunshine

The wind blows around

The fresh vegetation which comes from the earth

Oh Mama Africa you make me know what life is worth
