Lyrics
Arise from your sleep Africa
Arise from your sleep America

There's work to be done Africa
There's work to be done America

if we unite, we will be free so long, for too long
so long, for too long

we've been sitting down for so oooo long
we've been fooling round for too oooo long
we've been sitting down for so oooo long

so long, so long
for too long, for too long

Oh Lord, can you hear me now
Oh Lord



Remember, remember, long long time ago
when we used to live like prince and princess

Remember, remember, the pyramids of Egypt
when we used to live like prince and princess

Remember, remember,Marcus Garvey
Who had a dream for new Africa

Remember, remember, Martin luther King
Who had a dream for new America

They say you are black, they say you are brown
They say dem white, they say you are brown

But only the Angels of God is white
But only the Angels of God is white

so long, so long
for too long, for too long
we've been sitting down for so oooo long
we've been fooling round for too oooo long


Arise from your sleep Africa
Arise from your sleep America

There's work to be done Africa
There's work to be done America

if we unite, we will be free so long, for too long
so long, for too long



Remember, remember, Marcus Garvey
Who had a dream for new Africa

Remember, remember, Martin luther King
Who had a dream for new America

Remember, remember, King Selassie
Who was betrayed by his people

Remember, remember, Lord Jesus Christ
Who died for you and I to gain salvation

They say you are black,[do you believe?]
they say you are brown [do you believe?]

But only the Angels of God is white
But only the Angels of Jah is white

we've been sitting down for so oooo long
we've been fooling round for too oooo long

so long, so long
for too long, for too long

so long, so long
for too long, for too long
