Africa Must Wake Up Lyrics

[Hook: Damian Marley]

Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today? yeah, now

 

[Verse 1: Nas, Damian Marley]

The black oasis, Ancient Africa the sacred

Awaking, the sleeping giant, science, art is your creation

I dreamed that we could visit old Kemet

Your history is too complex and rigid for some Western critics

They want the whole subject diminished

But Africa’s the origin of all the world’s religions

We praise bridges that carried us over

The battle fronts of Sudanic soldiers

The task put before us, do you hear me now?

 

[Hook: Damian Marley]

Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today? yeah, now

Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today?

 

[Verse 2: Nas]

Who are we today? The slums, diseases, AIDS

We need that all to fade, we cannot be afraid

So who are we today?

We are the morning after, the makeshift youth

The slave ship captured, our diaspora is the final chapter

The ancestral lineage built pyramids

America’s first immigrants

The kings, sons and daughters from Nile waters

The first architect, the first philosophers

Astronomers, the first prophets and the doctors were us, us

 

[Bridge: Damian Marley]

Now can we all pray? Each in his own way

Teaching and learning, we can work it out

We’ll have a warm bed, we’ll have some warm bread

Shelter from the storm dread and we can work it out

Mother nature feeds all in famine and drought

Tell those selfish in ways, not to share us out

What’s a tree without root? Lion without tooth?

A lie without truth? You hear me out!

 

[Hook: Damian Marley]

Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today? yeah, Lord

Africa must wake up the sleeping sons of Jacob

What tomorrow may bring. may some more love come

Yesterday we were kings, I tell ya young bloods

The world is yours today…

 

[Bridge: K’naan]

Dadyahow daali waayey, nabada diideen

Oo ninkii doortay dinta, waadinka dillee

Oo dal markii ladhiso, waadinka dunshee

Oo daacad ninkii damcay, waadinka dooxee

Dadyahow daali waayey, nabada diideen

Oo ninkii doortay dinta, waadinka dillee

Oo dal markii ladhiso, waadinka dunshee

Oo daacad ninkii damcay, waadinka dooxee

 

[Guitar/Instrumental Break]

 

[Break: Nas]

We want to thank y’all, everybody out there

This is Nas, Damian Marley

Distant Relatives

We’re all distant relatives

No matter where you from, where you live

How near or far

Africa, China, Japan, Afghanistan, Israel

We’re all fam, we’re all distant relatives

So that’s why we came together

One of the reasons why myself and Damian came together

‘Cause we all come from one place, and that’s Africa

That’s right, you too

And you

The whole world!

We’re all family, we’re just spread out all over the place

So to all my distant relatives, let’s take it back home!

 

[Hook: Damian Marley]

I say! Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today? yeah, now

Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today? Who are we today?

 

[Outro: Damian Marley]

Morning to ya! Morning to ya man!

Morning to ya love!
