MAMA AFRICA


THE BEAUTY OF YOUR NAME
THE COOLNESS OF YOUR VOICE
THE COLOUR OF YOUR SKIN
THE RHYTHM OF YOUR MUSIC
CANNOT BE COMPARED
MAMA AFRICA,
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

THE ACCENT OF YOUR LANGUAGE
THE SCENT OF YOUR FLOWERS
THE AROMA OF YOUR FOOD
THE FRESH VEGETATION YOU PRODUCES
CANNOT BE COMPARED
MAMA AFRICA,
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

THE COOLNESSS OF YOUR WEATHER
FERTILITY OF YOUR LAND
GREENERY OF YOUR LAND
THE SPLENDOUR OF YOUR RIVER
THE BEAUTY OF YOUR MOUNTAIN
CANNOT BE COMPARED
MAMA AFRICA,
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
