Spoken - Africa Rise Up, Take Your Place 2X

Verse 1
Once there was a place
As dark as the night
The land of warriors of peace
And then a war broke out
And empires emerged
To claim their own victories
Revive our consciousness 4X

In the spirit of Alkebulan
The beauty of our motherland
Where culture rings true
And nubian princes rule
In the spirit of Alkebulan
2X

Verse 2
Today there is a place
Afu - ra - ka
The original land of humankind
Ripped of her people
Stripped of her treasures
To claim their own resources
Revive our gloriousness 4X

The beauty of our motherland
Where culture rings true
And nubian princes rule
In the spirit of Alkebulan

(Kenyan Children singing)
Chorus
Eh la la Oh La La
African Nostalgia

Verse 1
Take me back to the place
Where I played with sand and water
Take me back to the time
I was running down the streets
Rolling my wheels
Picking up snail shells
Cracking them open
Eating fireflies with my mouth wide open
Eh la la Oh La La

Chorus
Eh la la Oh La La
African Nostalgia

Verse 2
Joy, Happiness and Carefree Living
The sound of cock crows at dawn
And the agolos ringing
Mama's voice is calling
In the wake of twilight
Tales by moonlight
At Grandpa's feet
I’m peeping through the window
I hear the hawkers screaming their wares

Bridge

Track Name: Ile ft Na!ra
Ile (Home) Ft Na!ra

Verse 1
A thousand times a day
The mind must escape
The desert of illusion
A thousand times a day
Flowing from our hearts
Is the river of inspiration
At the end of your labour
Home is where the heart is
Home is where the heart is
Don’t you know Hmmm

Chorus
Ile Ile… Ile labo simi (Home, Home, Home is where you rest)
Ile labo simi oko o (Home is where you go after your journeys/work)
Ile Ile… Ile labo simi
Ile labo simi oko o

Verse 2
Listen to this song
Ringing loud and clear
It’s calling the prodigal sons
Although you have climbed Kilimanjaro
And crossed the boundaries of the ocean
In the midst of your journey
Home is where the heart is
Home is where the heart is
Don’t you know Hmmm

Chorus
Ile Ile… Ile labo simi
Ile labo simi oko o
Ile Ile… Ile labo simi
Ile labo simi oko o
(Naira rapping)
I found you in my brother’s eyes
My mother’s goodbyes
Even from afar
You are so alive
You are evergreen
Beauty blossoming
Truly lovely like Tosinger sings
So my soul clings
Like a seed to its source
See me shining like silk George
Gele tied tight
Helicopter the contours
I am prodigy
I am progeny
I’m the possibility of greatness
Eloquent Phone (tics)
In my cadence
Even granny mi is elated
Her and her sub saharan smile
Make me sure I'll make it
Home is where the heart
So I wear heart is on my sleeve
So you can say I'm living on the edge of my dreams

Bridge to end
Where there’s love that’s where you belong to – Ile labo simi oko o
Where there’s peace that’s what to embrace (Mi e le gbabe è - I can’t forget home) – Ile labo simi oko o

Verse 1
There's a little boy
With hopes and dreams
To one day be a man
Always wondered what the future really holds
Crying on the streets
Daddy's gone, mama's working so hard
He looks up to the sky and sings a melody

Chorus
Aeroplane o dabo (Goodbye Aeroplane)
Ba mi k'iya mi eleko (Say hi to my mom who sells wrapped corn meals)
Eko meji oyomi (Two corn meals will be enough for me)

E gbam gbam E jigi jigi (This is a vocal simulation of the sound an aeroplane makes when taking off)

Verse 2
There's a little girl
She goes to school
Learning for tomorrow
Evil comes and takes her far away
Night and Day, she's wailing
Waiting for her rescue
She looks up to the sky
And sings a melody

Chorus
Aeroplane o dabo
Ba mi k'iya mi eleko
Eko meji oyomi
Oyomi o Oyomi
