"Different Colours One People" as written by and Lucky Dube....
Breaking those barriers
All over the world
Was not an easy thing
Yesterday your mouth was shut yeah
Couldn' t make a sound eh boy
But it' s such a good feeling today
When I can hear them from
Across the ocean singing this song
That the whole world should be singing
All the time


Chorus: (x3)
We' re...
Different colours / one people
Different colours / one people


Hey you government
Never try to seperate the people
Hey you politician
Never try to seperate the people


They were created in the image of God
And who are you to seperate them
Bible says, he made man in his image
But it didn' t say black or white
Look at me you see BLACK
I look at you I see WHITE
Now is the time to kick that away
And join me in my song


Chorus: (x3)


Hey you politician
Never seperate the people here
Hey you man hey you man
Never try to seperate the people


Some were from America
We were from South Africa
Some were from Japan
We were from China
Some were from Australia
We were from the U.K.
Some were from Zimbabwe
We were from Ghana
Some were from Jamaica
We were from Russia
Some were from Aha-ha-ha
We were from Uhu-hu-hu


Chorus till fade
