Third World People Lyrics

Third world people
Remember where ya' comin' from
Third world people
Know where you belong

Mother country, mother country
We 'ave been told
That it's England, France, Germany, Portugal
Since the days of old

But I know that life could not start in a refrigerator
Has to be in an incubator
So mark I words, mark these words
Well, I'n'I could never be the third

Third world people
Remember where ya' comin' from
Third world people
Know where you belong

Father country, my father country
I've been told, time and time again
Says America, France, Germany, Portugal
Netherlands, Italy or Spain

But I know
That it's hungry Europe, barren Asia
And bountiful Africa

So you see now, you know who is first
Well, I'n'I could never be the worst

Third world people
Remember where ya' comin' from
Third world people
Know where you belong

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

They want to keep you down in perpetual
Insecurity, ignorance and poverty
By keeping the pressure on the innocent ones
Continually, this can't go on

Third world people
I'n'I remember where ya' comin' from
Bona fide, dis third world people
Know where you belong

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Civilization did not go up the Nile
It went down the Nile
And it reached Europe last

So if you not 'ave the roots
You just can't know the
Just can't know the truth, now

Africa, my country, my land
Africa, where the plants come from, I love to be
Africa, our wonderful Africa
Where the gold comes from

The diamonds come from
The platinum, the lignum, the oil
The rubber, ya' name it
We got it, we got it, we got it, we got it

Ooh, ooh, ooh
