Dedan (4 Mau Mau and Revolutionary Kenya)

Ma bredren Dedan,
Did get the deed done!
As he led the Mau Mau
white-colonial man shouted 'au'!
From above Mt. Kenya & forests
To expell da spell, colonial interests.

Alongside General China
Not with foolish Waitina
Ma bredren Dedan,
Did get the deed done!

With strategy & tactics
Guided by precise politics
Cho! the liberation struggle
Only for BoKenyatta to come scramble
To get the last sweet part of the pie
Rest of us forget, then live in lie

But, remember ma dreadlocked breddah, Dedan Kimathi
Did the deed. Done smarttie!
Alongside General China
Not with foolish Waitina

Am reminded of Mama Afrika!
From Makeda to Meriam Makeba
Of a beauty-full song
I mite get the pitch & tone wrong
"Frelimo, Frelimo, Erduado Mondlane! A luta..."

But hey, remeber ma I-dren , Dedan
How he got the deed done.
Of course with boGeneral China
While sell-outs were boWaitina.
