Blackman Know Yourself

LYRIC

[Intro]
The name of this dance is called Ki mo le
Which means in original English, pin it down
So brothers and sisters, let's all grab our partners
And pin them down, like this

[Scats]
(Ah ji gi ji gi tang ra ga ji gi ji gi)
(Ah ji gi ji gi tang ra ga ji gi ji gi)
(Ah ji gi ji gi tang ra ga ji gi ji gi)
(Ah ji gi ji gi tang ra ga ji gi ji gi)
(Eeeeeeeeeeeee e)
[Verse 1]
I see the problem since Slavery ended
Blackman never regain consciousness e
We get the wrong people for government
Who force us to think with colonial sense
Na wrong information scatta your head
You reject your culture for western sense
Bringing shame to yourself and your continent
Blackman today he don lost himself

[Chorus]
Blackman know yourself, be confident
Our ancestors civilised this world
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman blackman blackman blackman

[Verse 2]
The first university was in Africa
Black Africans were the teachers then
And people came from all over the world
To hear the teachings of our ancestors uh
Later these foreigners pickin make war with us
Dem fight us and enslave us by force
Claiming everything of our ancestors ye ye
But I said Black Africa will rise back on top
[Chorus]
Blackman know yourself, be confident
Our ancestors civilised this world
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman know yourself (blackman know yourself)
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman...
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman...
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman...
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
Blackman...
Don't forget your past (don't forget your past)
