    No matter how far we' come
    Blackness is here to stay
    I am my ancestors' son... yeah!

    Conundrum man and then some
    Are we still having fun?
    Someday our prince
    Will come home... HEY

    Power the drum all at once
    Before we come undone
    We need each other upfront

    Congas and Afro-beat done
    The world is overrun...
    Reclaiming what was our song

    A language spoken in drum
    Boom-BOOM speaks louder than
    Po-lit-i-cal correctness...

    Addresses dancers and wrong
    Providing answers,

    Encrypts the African message
    Teaching lessons

    Creatively in a session
    Outlines the tribal mission

    Lets elder statesmen visit ~
    Whenever wisdom's neeeded

    Power the drum to get it
    Listening every minute (peace)
