Asikatali - Children of Africa
Traditional Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Performed by Two of a Kind for Songs For Teachers™

Vocal      Piano Solo

We are the children of Africa,
And it's for freedom that we're fighting now
We are the children of Africa,
And it's for freedom that we're fighting now

(Chorus:)
A heavy load, a heavy load,
It's gonna take some real strength
A heavy load, a heavy load,
It's gonna take some real strength

We do not care if we go to prison,
If it's for freedom then we'll gladly go
We do not care if we go to prison,
If it's for freedom then we'll gladly go

(Chorus)

They took our lands, they took our homes -
How much longer will they bleed us?
They took our lands, they took our homes -
How much longer will they bleed us?

(Chorus)

In Soweto, they shot us down,
But we will stand up united
In Soweto, they shot us down,
But we will stand up united

(Chorus)

(Zulu:)
Asikatali, nomas'ya bozh, sizimiseli nkululeko
Asikatali, nomas'ya bozh, sizimiseli nkululeko

(Chorus:)
Unzima lomtwalo, ufuna madoda
Unzima lomtwalo, ufuna madoda

(Chorus - in English)
