You won the race before it started.
In our hearts, you were the champion:
“Money, Kudi Owo”, we all chanted.
You won the race! Before it started,
The race’s trophy you were granted.
But the khaki didn’t let you carry-on!
You won the race, before it started,
In our hearts. You were the champion!
Please, pray for us – in your grave
There is more peace than up here;
By poliTRICKS, the free turned slave.
Please pray for us in your grave,
None here can offer what you gave!
Can’t you see your people from there?
Please pray for us! In your grave,
There is more peace than up here.
