    Adventerous is the man...
    the one who...travels abroad to
    Know ME better than I cause...
    Internally...knows I am NOT INFERIOR to he?!
    Curiosity's got the best of
    this man who wants to learn the

    AFRI-CAN

    Strong Zulu men
    Beautiful Djola women
    Malinke children
    Culture
    Language
    History
    Yasa', Mafe', Tiebieu Dien

    Obia...Voodoo
    Taken over him, this...
    man who wants to learn the

    AFRI-CAN

    Mali
    Guinea
    Senegal
    Because of YOU...my
    country's taken a fall

    AIDS? How can this be...
    this disease came from YOUR
    family tree
    I'm dis-pleased with
    the dis-ease I feel

    You defile my country...MY LAND
    Said you were led by God's hand
    No redemption nor reparations for
    Afri-cans in this country
    BUT...
    When these events Manifest...
    come to light
    it will confirm I am a true
    Child of God...True Israelite

    Israelites are WE
    Gentiles are YOU...
    this isn't something
    Our God would do
    You are here at your own hand
    trying to learn the

    AFRI-CAN

    Conspiring against us
    Pretend you love us
    Want to annihilate us
    Further oppress us...Prophets fed us
    Garvey
    Muhammed
    Malcolm
    Ras Tefari
    God blessed all ah we!

    Now it's time for you to flee
    Let us alone...let us be
    Here in Africa, we are free

    Adventerous man, end your plight
    Stop trying to learn the

    AFRI-CAN
