FREEDOM SONG FOR WOMEN OF AFRICA

WOMEN AND SUFFERING

I

Sing songs from the great voice of truth

Sing songs which will equally soothe

For songs bright for all get most dance

Songs for the half put half in trance

Let the songs from Africa call

For the ones made to take the fall

Since time was, up to the present

See it as atonement present

CHORUS

Make women who are the paths brave

Stop sending them to early graves

You’ll gain if you good living paves

And will be as breakers of slave caves

II

Days of chains of smoke in kitchens

Days claimed witches were killed as chickens

Days of females sent as presents

Days when female mouths had no contents

Breeds of humans and animals

Seize! No factions are animals

Please see the way and freedom pave

Let us out and our lives save

CHORUS

Make women who are the paths brave

Stop sending them to early graves

You’ll gain if you good living paves

And will be as breakers of slave caves

III

When one who craves for normal life

Happens to be a normal one’s wife

What’s the message being sent across?

That the wife bears his heavy cross?

Wake from the slumbers of surety

Save the world from a calamity

Hear children weep for their mothers

And save the day as their fathers

CHORUS

Make women who are the paths brave

Stop sending them to early graves

You’ll gain if you good living paves

And will be as breakers of slave caves
