Aid For Africa

by Lucci'

sweet Africa,
your babies need mothers
your women need fathers
your sisters need lovin
and your brothers need huggin
which one will come first
which one is needed worst
medical supplies or loving eyes
hopful prayers or neglectful stares
which of these will help you stay alive
and halt the destruction of your tribe

motherland, oh, motherland, 
keep your light on
keep it right on 
the pulse of our soul
the riches should return from the riches 
that were stole

dear Africa
your land is slowly bleeding 
for the love your solely needing
can we give you some heart to heart 
with no hesitation 
before it's too late
destiny has written into your fate
a proclamation of hopes' arrival
a heartbeat away from sweet survival
that's staring right there in your face
to save a sacred and beautiful race

motherland, motherland
keep your light on
keep it right on
the spirits the sing to you
that keeps you in all you go through
and guides you to what you must do
inhearet the earth
and begin life anew
