"Homeland Africa (Ship Ahoi)" as written by and Kenneth/huff Gamble....
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)

In the motion of the ocean, hear the cold wind blowing

Down the ocean a ship comes riding through the waves
Filled with hundreds of men they take as slaves
Just long for their true homeland, Africa
And to be saved, they want to be free

Men, women and baby slaves
Coming to the land of liberty, liberty

Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)

They are tired of waiting for a brand new day
Some of them sing and chant, some of them pray
And some men got a little tired too
No one knows if the journey pay

Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)

Down the ocean a ship comes riding through the waves
Filled with hundreds of men they take as slaves
Just long for their true homeland, Africa
And to be saved, they want to be free

Men, women and baby slaves
Coming to the land of liberty, liberty

Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)

Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)
Ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi, ship ahoi
(Ship ahoi)
