Afrika open up your gates
Let your sons and dawtas enter in
Afrika open up your gates
Let the exiled ones come in

Whoah!! Oh! Oh! Oh! Afrika
Stretch forth yours hands to I'n'I/ Afrika!
Pull I'n'I to your bosom
That is where I belong
Oh! Afrika!

Om shanti, Om shanti, Om shanti
A chant for peace, Om shanti
A chant for peace, Om shanti
Afrika! Om shanti!
A chant for unity, Om shanti
A chant for inity, Om shanti
Oh! Afrika! Oh! Afrika! Oh! Afrika!

Afrika needs peace, Afrika needs inity
Afrika needs justice, Afrika needs justice
Afrika needs justice
Afrika needs our Love
Afrika needs our Love
Afrika needs our Love, Om shanti
Sing out a chant of Love for Afrika
Sing out a chant of Love, Om shanti

Afrika cries blood, sweat and tears
Afrika cries for her children
Oh! You exiled ones
Ring out a chant for Afrika, Om shanti!

Should I be prepared to return to Afrika?
When I was never prepared to leave in
The first place?
When I'n'I was taken away from Afrika, Afrika!
We've been gone for far too long
We've been away for far too long
Oh! Afrika! Oh! Afrika! Oh! Afrika!

Give her some justice
Give Afrika her justice
Afrika needs justice!!
Afrika needs peace and Love
Chant a chant for peace and Love
Afrika needs peace and Love, Om shanti!
Chant a chant for peace and Love
Chant a chant for inity
Chant a chant for justice
For Afrika, Oh! Afrika!
Afrika we love, oh! Afrika!
We love you Afrika!

Although I was not born in Afrika
Afrika is born in I'n'I
Afrika we Love!

Afrika needs some justice
Give Afrika her justice!
Give Afrika her justice!
Give Afrika her justice!

Seven hundred Afrikans dying per day
And why aren't we crying?
For Beloved Mama Afrika
She's wasting away
Afrika arise out of your sleep and slumber
Arise, cause we LOVE YOU!!!

GIVE AFRIKA HER JUSTICE!
