Oh My Mama Africa
Oh my mama Africa, what have we done?
We pray for mercy before it’s all gone.
Save our country and bring hope back.
End this massacre between white and black.
Grow our crops and feed the hunger.
Oh my mama Africa, how much longer?
Corruption and Political war are killing each other.
Oh my mama Africa, save my sisters and brothers.
Open their eyes and let them see.
Lead them back to our colourfully country.
Oh my mama Africa, let us forgive our ancestor.
And bury this anger with what they did wrong.
Unite all our races together as one.
So we can build this African country to be proud and strong.
