Majek Fashek – So Long Lyrics

Majek Fashek – So Long Lyrics

Arise from your sleep Africa
Arise from your sleep America
There’s work to be done Africa
There’s work to be done America

If we unite, we will be free so long, for too long
So long, for too long
We’ve been sitting down for so oooo long
We’ve been fooling round for too oooo long
We’ve been sitting down for so oooo long

So long, so long
For too long, for too long
Oh Lord, can you hear me now
Oh Lord

Remember, long long time ago
When we used to live like prince and princess
Remember, remember, the pyramids of Egypt
When we used to live like prince and princess

Remember, remember, Marcus Garvey
Who had a dream for you Africa
Remember, remember, Martin Luther King
Who had a dream for you America

They say you are black, they say you are brown
They say dem white, they say you are brown
But only the Angels of God is white
But only the Angels of God is white
So long, so long

We’ve been sitting down for so oooo long
We’ve been fooling round for too oooo long

Arise from your sleep Africa
Arise from your sleep America
There’s work to be done Africa
There’s work to be done America

If we unite, we will be free so long, for too long
So long, for too long

Remember, remember, Marcus Garvey
Who had a dream for you Africa
Remember, remember, Martin Luther King
Who had a dream for you America

Remember, remember, King Selassie
Who was betrayed by his people
Remember, remember, Lord Jesus Christ
Who died for you and I for salvation

They say you are black,
They say you are brown
But only the Angels of God is white
But only the Angels of Jah is white

We’ve been sitting down for so oooo long
We’ve been fooling round for too oooo long

So long, so long
For too long, for too long
So long, so long
For too long, for too long
