COME WITH ME EXTENDED VERSION ALLSTARS COLLABORATION


[GAYLORD MUNEMO]
And so we looked for the answers,
Never knowing what the south installed,
Here they come, we are strong believers


[DHLAMINI SAKHILE]
Come with me
Where the sun strikes to rise
Where the dreams build to rise
Where life indeed lives to shine
Where mind-set opened as shrine
We wear our hearts on our sleeve
We wear sackcloth and ashes never to leave

Come with me
To see the light in diamonds
To see the nature greened
To see the minerals and mines alive
To see the rainbow of nations
To see the beauty of black nation
To the variety of many notations
To steal someone's thunder, not our duty
To see the diversity of people in harmony

[DONALD KUUTSI]
Come with me
Let's take a walk,
Close your eyes,
And listen to the breeze,
The Majestic Ethiopian Lake Tana,
Feeling the beautiful nature of Africa,

[DHLAMINI SAKHILE]
Come with me
In valley of every land,
In the bags, yes we got it secured.
Where they is solidarity of societies
In oral sharing knowledge of our forefathers
In which the community is a family
In which the human kind is originate
In humanity created population
In which sea breeze lay in your shore
In which land breeze set in your hands

[BENEVOLENT MASORA]
COME WITH ME
Descendants cast for comfort & freedom,
Lay not waste our powers,
Rising from those we see no more,
As we glide through the ancient floor,
Foot worn hallowed and thin,
Where the dead feet walked through,
Alive enough to have the strength to die,
Enslaved our ancient pulse shrunken,
Hard & dry,
Live to its sad self here after kind charitable
To live the tormentated spirit,
Yet tormenting
COME WITH ME
To my mother land Africa
As we take the act of stealth and troubled pleasure,
With voices driving us as sound an eyelid's blink
Can we move on?


[DHLAMINI SAKHILE]
Come with me
I'll show you Africa
The land of peace
Not that big but such a piece
Constrain in vain with slavery
Convey it esoteric freedom
Eurocentric never on-top of our African perspective
All we got it such a respective
Our loud people mind not to shout
Out on our towns, enjoy it
Our knowledge passes through our generations.
Our history isn't written but it is in our-self as decorations.
Come with me I will show you my Africa, Africa!

[MUDIKANI GONDORA]
Come with me,
I will show you the land filled with endless discoveries,
Possessing concealed treasures,
Africa land of exceptional beauty,
Adorned with outstanding& outspoken natural beauty,
Magnificently structured with great mountains,
Freely flowing rivers,
Blessed with mortals which embrace hidden talent & intelligence,
Africa & its inhabitants true bonafied absolute definition of beauty

[SIMBARASHE MUDUKUTI]
Come with me
for safety, please stay close to me
you wouldn't like to taste the sting of a bee
welcome to the land of milk and honey
the land where people buy with no money
take your camera with you,
for you shall capture the picture of your soul
watch your step
for your step shall guide you
welcome to my motherland
welcome to Africa


[DONALD KUUTSI]
Come with me
Take my hand,
As we go to the Promised Land,
My mother land,
The cradle of mankind,
Africa
Come with me
To the land of ice & fire,
The pride & prestige of Africa
Mount Kilimanjaro,
The roof of Africa,
The African pride that has inspired legends,
The pride that has lured adventures,
Fueled imaginations,
Captivating the minds of the Tanzanians & visitors,
Visitors from all walks of life around the world,

[BENOVELENT MASORA]
Come with me
Fear not shadows
For they resemble presence of light,
Through the familiar ground,
Our ancient feet once dragged with sound of a whip eyes shut blind,
Barefooted,
In iron collar and chained in a row,
Come with me,
Now we stride shinning so bright,
We light every mile,
Silver buttons arranged in a row,
Let say that now we are not as we were,
Only the underlying the sense,
Of tears breaking the calm,
And bitterness of our ancient,
Dancing to the sound of a whip,
Come with me
Now we sing our souls in our prime,
A crown we now posses,
Granted by the bevy that lies underground,
Loud silence calls upon,
Come with me
Explore the land,
The blind eye in the day,
Groped around the comfortless


[SIMBARASHE MUDUKUTI]
Come with me
and board the train of Africa
we shall travel from Cape to Cairo
from rugged escarpments
to grasslands
to peneplains
going down into the jungle
where we shall see the mambo jumbo
straight into the rainforests
before we sweat ourselves in the desert
feel the love in the air
smells of love and care
for that's what we share
with my brothers and sisters in Africa
for when you live, i shall give you some
so that you give those in your land
for we have it in abundance here
pouring tears of joy

[GAYLORD MUNEMO]
How far can your vision go?
Beyond the hills are diamonds of bliss,
Beneath the seas are nature's wonderments
The eagles of the air
The predators of the land
Open your eyes, it's a new kingdom
How enduring are your feet?
The adventures are unveiling before you,
Come with me, I will make you a witness

[ALBERT SITHOLE]
This is my Africa, Our Nest!
Always united by the themes of our struggles,
And the frameworks of our fallen Heroes!
A network of legacy running down to the youth,
To brood the African destiny,
The African Original
Africa, my beloved!
Come with me.


[SIMBARASHE MUDUKUTI]
Come with me
ohhh! what are the bags for?
i can see you are now ready to live
but why so early?
here! take some love with you
tell them that you were in the land of peace and harmony
the land where love is grown
the land far beyond the horizon
the land where the sun rises
the land where you see the sun set into its mother
the cradle of mankind
a place I call my home
Africa

[ALBERT SITHOLE]
Come with me,
Lets explore the African panorama,
Where birds sing in the morning dew,
To embrace a new sunny day
Emblem of Mother Nature
A carpet of vegetation,
Deposits of precious stones and soil,
Diverse languages yet One people,
A hub of divine mankind.
Full of life, full of hope,
A rainbow continent
Knitted by peace and love


[GAYLORD MUNEMO]
Like the pounding arrows of Soshangane,
Hear the sound of drum beats,
How beautiful be it the mysteries unfold,
Ancestors comprehend and get pleased,
Prowess and magnificence, oh yes
The angry face of Zambezi,
The furious Nile eroding the rocks of Masai
Let the world see and praise,
The seed of new age,
Rising towards Kilimanjaro,
Come with me, I will show you Africa,
Come with me, you won't leave Africa


[ASHLEY MAWERE]
Into my ears she whispered come with me
Why say no to one blessed with the Kalahari,
As her skin tone,
Why resist one who is ever green dress call to adventure,
Surely this dame is home to the wildlife,
Its not about the diamonds that adorn her,
Its not about the gold she has to offer,
I came to hear her song a tonal pattern composed in tears as her children,
Slain in the name of colonization,
Taken and sold for a day wage into slavery a melody that will one day be the anthem,
As she gives birth at the dawn of independence,
Come with me to Africa and we will sing into your ear,
I now whisper come with me


BLESSING MASORA

Runaway with me
From the tremendous, blubbering human kind
Come reach for my hand, close your eyes
Come with me and let us take a venture in Africa
Feel the fresh scent of the savannah
Of the virgin lands untouched yet to be discovered
Unleash your imagination let it go free
Let it run wild along with the wild beasts
Now open your eyes
Feed them with tantalising beauty mother nature has to offer
Flow along with the silver fresh glittering water
Quench your thirst with juicy fresh fruits in many different quantities
Africa has nothing less to offer than the best quality of its produce
We are the global heart the mother land
We don't need Botox here
Our skins are natural natured by flawless milk and honey
Instead let us not mourn and sob on what we don't have
But let us blow our trumpets beat our drums
To celebrate Africa
To be proud to be African
Just come with me,
