Thou we struggle 
Jah is the ruler and protector of I & I life 
All man a bawl (Eh!) 

(Ethiopia) Africans with African pride 
(Somalia) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For our nation to move forward 
(Mozambique) Africans with African pride 
(Zambia) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 

What make we can't all unite 
Put each man difference aside 
Why can't we just come together 
Cease from tribal wars and fight 
Who knows better must do better 
A source of collective insight 
May not be exposed to education 
But surely knows wrong from right 

(Nigeria) Africans with African pride 
(Ghana) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
(Zimbabwe) Africans with African pride 
(Zaire) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 

Self help with inner motivation 
Teach I to be self sufficient 
don't want to depend on no one 
For attainment of my bread 
Oh these words 
Oh my calling 
Children crying white squall tears 
Hunger rampant harvest plenty (ooohwe, whoa) 

(Senegal) Africans with African pride 
(South Africa) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For any nation to move forward 
(Ethiopia) Africans with African pride 
(Somalia) Fighting to attain our rights 
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh) 
(oh oh oh oh oh oh) 

(Unde-lay, Unde-lay, Unde-lay, uh lay lay woi) 
(Unde-lay, Unde-lay, Unde-lay, uh lay lay woi) 
(Woi) 

(Freedom) free Africa 
A free free Africa 
(Freedom) free Africa 
A free indi-Africa 
(Freedom) free Africa 
Di whole entire Africa 
(Freedom) free Africa (Whoa, woy-yo) 

(Botswana) Africans with African pride 
(Cameroon) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
(Angola) Africans with African pride 
(Namibia) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 

What make we can't all unite 
Put each man difference aside 
Why can't we just come together 
Cease dis tribal war and fight 
Who knows better must do better 
A source of collective insight 
May not be exposed to education 
But surely knows wrong from right 

(Algeria) Africans with African pride 
(Mali) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
(Benin) Africans with African pride 
(Burundi) Fighting to attain our rights 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 

Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward 
Want no more shedding of blood 
For dis nation to move forward
