Hello Bonjour
by Michael Franti



I don't need a passport
To walk on this earth,
Anywhere I go cause I was made of this earth
I'm born of this earth,
I breathe of this earth,
And even with the pain I believe in this earth, so
I wake up every mornin' and I'm steppin' on the floor,
I wake up every mornin' and I'm stepping out the door

I got faith in the sky,
Faith in the one,
Faith in the people rockin' underneath the sun
'Cause every bit of land is a holy land and
Every drop of water is a holy water and
Every single child is a son or a daughter of the one
Earth mama and the one Earth papa, so
Don't tell a man that he cant come here cause he got
Brown eyes and a wavy kind of hair, and
Don't tell a woman that she cant go there because she
Prays a little different to a God up there
You say you're a Christian
'Cause God made you
You say you're a Muslim
'Cause god made you
You say you're a Hindu and the next man a Jew
Then we all kill each other
'Cause God told us to nah!

Hello, hello!
Bonjour, bonjour!
Hola, hola!
Konnichiwa, konnichiwa wa!

Follow me
Let me take to the dance hall
Now to come a rock this rhythm
Follow me
Let me take to the dance hall
Now to come a skankin'
Follow me
Let me take to the dance hall
Now to come a rock this rhythm
Follow me
Let me take to the dance hall
In a Spearhead style
Now hear this!

So dance to the rhythm
Bounce to the rhythm
Shake to the rhythm
And you roll to the rhythm
Sweat to the rhythm
Get wet to the rhythm

Make love to the rhythm
Clean up to the rhythm
When you movin'
You come alive
And when ya grooving
In rhythm we survive, so
Don't panic, don't panic
No drum machine
This is all organic
Just Sly and Robbie on the drums and the bass
Stickie on percussion and we mashin' up the place
Givin' you a beat you can rock and rool to
Givin' you a sound you can shake your soul to so
Hip hoppas punk rockas
Roots rockas even wood stockas
I don't need a passport
Just send a postcard
Send me a message, let me know how you are
Whether you're walkin' or drivin' in your car
Throw your hands high and
Tell me who you are
Say
