Africa - Lyrics

Born in the sunshine, long time ago
This land of milk and honey gave all it had to grow
We took your sons and daughters
And made them to slaves
Now times have started changing
You're sending out new waves

Africa - your people will be free
There will be a new society
Africa - they tried to put you down
Let's join hands, stop live in underground

This land, this land's for Black and White
Join hands and make things alright
'Cos there's still so much to do
'Cos there's still so much to do, let's start again
There's still so much to do in Africa

You had no education, so we took everything
We stole your gold and diamonds
To make our people sing
And in your darkest ages we even took your land
We split up all your country - you don't understand

Liberia, Zaire, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Angola
Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe
And all the parts of Africa

This land, this land's for Black and White
Join hands and make things alright
'Cos there's still so much to do
'Cos there's still so much to do, let's start again
There's still so much to do in Africa
