La Solution Africaine

O l’Afrique , notre Afrique

Pourquoi, pourquoi es –tu devenue un endroit
Pour des gens confondus, perdus, avides et désesperés
D’où viennent les guerres d’expansions
Contre nous-mêmes?
D’où viennent la malhonneteté, la mechanceté et la haine chez nous?
Où est la reponse idéale pour tout
Le système ou nous-mêmes?
Nous-mêmes? Mais pourquoi?

Nous avons besoin de Dieu
Il faut se soumettre à Dieu
Pourquoi?
Tous jeunes gens, vieux, amis tout le monde
Que nous confions à Dieu pour changer notre direction
Nous serons gueris dedans et dehors
Et notre pauvre Afrique commencera à briller
(1981)

African solution

O Africa, our Africa
Why, why have you become a place
For confused, lost, greedy and desperate people
From where do the wars of expansion against each other
Come?
From where comes the dishonesty, wickedness and hate
Amongst us?
What is the ideal solution to all this?
From the system or from within us?
From within us? But why?

We need God
We have to submit to God
Why?
Young, old, friends, everyone
Let’s trust in God to help us change course
We will be healed within and without
And our poor Africa will begin to shine
(1981)
