The Freedom Song




Throughout the sand of history the braveheart stood in the way
Of the noble lords in pompous dress who had the evil say.

And all the families of the meek who seek – to live in love in peace.

Cannot keep what belongs to them – the nobles want their fleece.

And those that know the pain and loss from those who rule in sin
Must join together hand in hand until all justice wins.

And I see the spark of freedom in their eye
And I see the spark of freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the hope of freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the Light of freedom in their eye
Jumbe

Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa
Oh Wiwa, Oh Wiwa
Jumbe Saro-Wiwa

Ah – ah – ah
Jumbe

And good men run the gauntlet to try the righteous rule
While others of a lesser code make them out a fool

And those who have the power can wear the whitest robes
While the meek and truly humble can only sing life’s Odes

And I see the spark of freedom in their eye
And I see the spark of freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the hope of freedom in their eye

Yes, I see the Light of freedom in their eye
Jumbe

Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa
Oh Wiwa, Oh Wiwa
Jumbe Saro-Wiwa!
