Until the philosophy 
 Which hold one race superior and another  Inferior 
Is finally 
And permanently  Discredited 
And abandoned  Everywhere is war
Me say war

That until there no longer  First class and second class citizens of any nation  Until the color of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights 
Are equally guaranteed to all
 Without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
 World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained
Now everywhere is war
War

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola 
In Mozambique  South Africa
Sub-human bondage 
Have been toppled  Utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war
Me say war

War in the east
War in the west
War up north 
War down south 
War war
 Rumors of war
And until that day,
The African continent
Will not know peace,
We Africans will fight we find it necessary 
And we know we shall win
As we are confident 
In the victory 

Of good over evil
Good over evil, yeah
Good over evil
Good over evil, yeah
Good over evil
