One Generation

Hook
One generation to lift up the nation/ Formation
Of the True Foundation
One generation with one vocation/creation
Of a proud black nation

Verse 1
We come from too far/ and we traveled too far/
Not to shine of the bright light of the Black Star/
Ascending Suns of the Dark Continent/
We testify that a shake up is imminent/
I can feel it in the air the fragrance/
The essence, the presence of an African renaissance/
40 years or so since Independence/
We’ve been suffering from the ills of their governance/
Lifetime presidency, no precedence
Absolute powers with royal pretense
Secretly, backed up by England or France
We’ve been paying in blood, sweat and tears
The price of giving in, to our fears
We cry dry, no more tears in our eyes
Hope Dies Last it’s a word to the wise
They better realize, they better realize

Hook

Verse 2
Teknologikal Africans, Scientific Africans, Artistic Africans
Business Africans, farmer Africans, and all of Africans

It’s all up to us, and only to us/ to stop all cuss/ fight off the fuss/
Build up the trust/ control the lust/ clear up the dust/ clean off the rust
Do pick up your broom as I grab up my tool
The motherland didn’t raise up no fool
So work up your keyboard or your Daba
And let’s make Africa Indaba

Teknologikal Africans, Scientific Africans, Artistic Africans
Business Africans, farmer Africans, and all of Africans

Hook

Verse 3
We got what we need to get where we want
And it only takes a seed to grow up a plant
We got the brain power and the man hours
To confidently build up what to claim ours
What’s good for the West is good for the West
But what’s good for us we need to put it to the test
We need our own schools, our own institutions
Our own African minded constitution
A well thought out and true rendition
Of our ancient and wise African traditions
A new readership for a new leadership
So no more can die on the new slave ship
Africans wake up, but please don’t stop dreaming
Can’t stop won’t stop as the sun beaming
Like under pressure ,we’re steaming, hear us chanting,
 we screaming we chanting
