Made In Africa (Album Version)

Made In Africa (Album Version)

Stephen Marley

Educate yourself of, Africa
To liberate yourself, Africa
Keep your heads up high
No more will we cry
Our history that they stole, Africa
Is written in our souls, Africa
Oh this nation and this earth
Know just what you're worth

Well, well
Ships that sailed to distant places
Robbed us of our rights and words
History says that you've been betrayed us
Talking of the Gods you serve
Here the rumbling in the sky
Tears that our forefathers cried
And today we're still in chase
Take the shackle from our minds

You're the corner stone
The king of wonder grown

How beautiful art thou, Africa
A nation you have to bow, Africa
Don't you fall from grace
You're that sacred place

Power to the people
Motherland representer
I am more ? with the man ?
She my co-dependent
And I demand her attention
Can you focus, woman
I'm getting closer to the sky
Every time I hit it

Haile Selaise, power of the trinity
So many ? , my vice made in Italy
White man's world that I'm living in some say
But it was Africa, the continent
That we all came from

Can't nuttin' come between me and you
So before I have seeds
Gotta understand my roots
Gotta understand the truth
We is all kings drowned here
?

Although my body is in the US
My hearts there
I can never be ashamed of her
I got my features
And my name from her
Mama Africa

The richest place on earth
Know just what you're worth

Talking about the God you serve

Keep your heads up high
No more will we cry

They infiltrate our homes, Africa
They claim it as their own, Africa
Now we must stand tall
To break down these walls

Our children must be taught of Africa
The science and the arts of Africa

Educate yourselves, Africa
To liberate your selves, Africa
Keep your heads up high
No more will we cry

Beautiful art thou, Africa
A nation you have to bow, Africa
Oh, oh, oh

Made in Africa
Made in Africa
Made in Africa
Made in Africa
Made in Africa
Made in Africa
