Edward Kofi Louis (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)
Freedom, freedom, freedom!
My freedom, your freedom, our freedoms;
Like e thousand times of a cry in a land!
Yes, they rule with iron-hand but,
We have to obey always;
A rule with an iron fist but,
We have to be the subjects always;
Look around you,
It is full of colours;
My freedom, your freedom, their freedoms!
Freedom, freedom, freedom! ! !
We nedd freedom than these shackles.
Free-free-free! Freedom to my people! !
My people, your people, our peoples;
Have mercy on them and rule them with care.
We need freedom around us,
See the type of governments around you;
The people's freedom with an iron fist!
Tell me if all is well.
