Wyclef Jean - Proud To Be African lyrics

I'll never forget
(Spoken)
Here's what they say when I came to Africa
"It's going to change my life."
I ain't understand what they were saying,
Until I landed in Africa

(Sung)
I'll never forget the first time my plane landed down there in Africa
10,000 people came to the airport so they can come greet the Rasta
Arrived at the hotel, through that get-me start, after that called up my mother
I told then, "Thank you, mama, to all that drama you'd said I would make it as an African."

I'm so proud to be African (So proud)
I'm so proud to be Africano (So proud)
She's so proud to be African (So proud, so proud)
She's so proud to be Africana (Nigeria, South Africaa)
I'm so proud to be African (Ghana, Liberia)
I'm so proud to be Africano (Cote D'Ivore, Senegal)
She's so proud to be African (Zimbabwe)
She's so proud to be Africana (ya-so)

(Sound Sultan)
Singing notes for my black skin, shout it loud
I'm proud to be African, I'm black and proud
Many many years don pass wey we no know the truth
Many many people don die when them no know the rules
We are the children of the Chosen One
We never, ever bow to Babylon
(Wyclef)
