Yo, yo
Be here now

Rally round the flag
Rally round the red, gold, black and green
Rally round the
Rally round the red, gold, black and green

Marcus say, Sir Marcus say
Red for the blood
That flowed like the river
Marcus say, Sir Marcus say
Green for the land, Africa
Marcus say
Yellow for the gold
That they stole
Sir Marcus say
Sir Marcus say
Black for the people
It looted from

They took us away
Captivity, captivity
Required from us a song
Right now man say repatriate, repatriate
I and I patience have now long time gone
Fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, everyone (ooh)
Four hundred (ooh)
Four hundred million strong
Ethiopia stretch forth her hands
Closer to God, we Africans
Closer to God, we Africans
Closer to God, we can

In our hearts is Mount Zion
Now you know seek the lion
Our hearts is Mount Zion
Now you know, now you know
Ayy, how can we sing in a strange land?
(Sing in a strange land)
Don't want to sing in a strange land
(Sing in a strange land)
Liberation
True democracy
One God, one aim
One destiny

Rally round the
Rally round the
Red for the blood
That flowed like the river
Rally round the
Rally round the
Green for the land, Africa
Rally round the
Rally round the
Yellow for the gold
That they stole
Rally round the
Rally round the
A we the black people

Remember when we used to dress like kings
Conqueror of land
Conqueror of seas
Civilization far moved from caves
Oppressor
Oppressor man live deh, live deh
I curse that day (that day, that day)
The day they made us slaves

I say, how can we sing in a strange land?
(Sing in a strange land)
(Sing in a strange land)
Don't want to sing in a strange land, no, no, no
(Sing in a strange land)
(Sing in a strange land)
Liberation
True democracy
One God, one aim
One destiny

Rally round the flag
Rally round the red, gold, black and green
Rally round the
Rally round the red, gold, black and green

A bright shining star (rally round the flag)
Yeah, Africa (rally round the red, gold, black and green)
Catch star liner right now (rally round, rally round)
Yeah, Africa, Africa
A history, no more a mystery (rally round the, rally round)
Africa, Africa
Respect and authority (rally round the flag)
Africa, Africa (rally round the red, gold, black and green)
Climb ye the heights of humanity (rally round, rally round)
Africa, Africa
Come rally (rally round the)
Come rally (rally round)
Come rally
Come rally round
Come rally (rally round the flag)
Come rally (rally round the red, gold, black and green)
Come rally
Come rally round
Come rally (rally round the)
