I see the people standing on the shore
I see a big chief there standing on the shore
I ask my mama what they crying for

I saw a black cloud hanging in the sky
I saw a big black cloud hanging in the sky
And I ask my papa when will it roll by

Oh we're standing on the edge of the world (Ooh)
Oh we're standing
Standing out of here
On the edge of the world (Ooh)

Come on brother (brother) we gonna shake this town
Come on sister (sister, sister) we gonna shake this town (burn it up)
