War In Sierra Leone Lyrics

B'woy, if yah see the remnant of sufferation and disgrace
Where the English government left inna Africa- dog b'woy
Them have no respect for the people and act and a come g'waan like them decent
It was way down in West Africa, way down in the slave country
I took a walk, I took a walk down in West Africa
Down in West Africa
And there I found myself taking a short stop
Way down in Ghana
To tell them that me on ya
Then after I took a rest I took a walk
Way over to Cape Coast slave dungeon
To see what was happening (Hear what the song say)
Equal rights and justice stand for all
Them a preach upstairs rights from downstairs (Lord have mercy)
Them rip up creation
Slave trade continue until I found myself way over in
Sierra Leone
At the foot of Lion Mountain
It was around about Christmastime
Then I stop to have a drink of palm wine
But one thing- them want the people live like swine
They gave guns and bullets to the rebels and start to
teach them to fight each other for iamond
It was a diamond war (Yet for whom?)
And all because there was nothing to gain
I've never seen the United Nation cry peace again
So you nuh see the corruption (and I look at you)
Out of the woodland
Man a nah nuh fight none
Stretch out your hand, put it out yourself
What do you want? Long sleeve or short sleeve?
And them a take them cutlass and them chop it off
(your request now)
Long sleeve them chop you on the wrist
Short sleeve them a cut it to the arm
We have everything in paradise (my God)
Here in the West
Even them Christmastime them song like a Christmastime without light!!
From the woodland
Just the sound of a bird.
When I woke up in my lonely cottage, listening to the song of each thing
And every man them a fight it don't know who is gonna win
War in a Africa
But it is extra slaughter there in Sierra Leone
One president fall down
