The Great Africa

I'm looking at you, from the Bering Sea
I'm looking at you, Mediterranean Sea
I'm looking at you, from Arabian Sea
I'm looking at you, from Caribbean Sea
I'm looking at you, from Erythraean Sea
I'm looking at you, from the Coral Sea.

I'm looking at you, from the eyes of Achebe
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, from the eyes of Nyerere
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, from the peak of Makerere
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa.

The home of the Blacks, Caucasians and the Colored
Where human scrambles in turn like a ballad
Driven faithfully by the crusade and the Jihad
O great Africa, you're the best thing I never had
When I look at you, I feel home, I'm not sad
You're old and young, and without a bald.

I'm looking at you, from the top Kilimanjaro
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, down the bottom Ngorongoro
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa
I'm looking at you, from the canes of Kilombero
I'm looking at you, the Great Africa.
