lyrics

I was born in a land, that is cold, yes it snows,
Mama was passing through, gave me no choice, only she knows
Just like a creo cookie, milky white & chocolate brown
Jealous, angry peers, they call me a living lie

CHORUS
Don’t know who I am boy
Don’t know what I am Lord
Mama, Please tell me, there’s a plan here
Cos what I am, don’t wanna be
A nomad woman

I sometimes think I’m from another place
On a mission here, from outerspace
Is Planet Zolga a reality?
I’m trying to place my identity

CHORUS
Don’t know who I am boy
Don’t know what I am Lord
Mama Please tell me, there’s a plan here
Cos what I am, don’t wanna be
A nomad woman

Bridge
AfroScat

CHORUS
Don’t know who I am boy
Don’t know what I am Lord
Mama, Please tell me, there’s a plan here
Cos what I am, don’t wanna be
A nomad woman

CHORUS
Don’t know who I am boy
Don’t know what I am Lord
Mama, Please tell me, there’s a plan here
Cos what I am, don’t wanna be
A nomad woman

Africa, oh Africa!

WP_20160130_2759.jpgAfrica, oh Africa!
Summon the glory of Africa!
Africa, oh Africa!
Will you raise your Pharaohs again?
Land of gold and precious jewels;
Will you adorn thyself again?
Africa, oh Africa!
Summon the glory of Africa!

Shame, shame on you Motherland Africa!!

WP_20160128_5535Shame on you, shame on you motherland Africa,
Shame, shame, shame on you.

Still you persist in de-robing ze innocence of le virgins.
Still you mutilate and castrate le future.
Still you abuse and clubber,
Still you cause the hearts to shudder.
At the ill gotten gain;
Of licentiousness pain.
You seem not to care;
You seem not to hear.
The cry of newborn child,
Left to wander, yonder wild;
Like a crevasse, displaced, torn, ruptured from the womb;
You erupt, molten magma, scattered pieces, empathy doomed.

Shame, shame, shame on you
Shame, shame, on you,
Motherland Africa!
From, far North Eritrea, West Nigeria to South Zulu.
Shame, shame, shame on you
Motherland Africa!
