Tiken Jah Fakoly - Y en a marre (English translation)

English translation

Enough already

We've had enough
Africa has had enough, enough, enough
We've had enough
The people has had enough, enough, enough
 
Murdered journalists
because of murdering presidents
Generals in control
Oppressed populations
Hijacked international aid
Famished populations
State funds squandered
Disregarded human rights
 
We've had enough
Africa has had enough, enough, enough
We've had enough
The people has had enough, enough, enough
 
After abolishing slavery
they created colonization
When we got rid of that
they created foreign aid
Since we condemn this situation
they created globalization
And, without explaining globalization
it's basically Babylon exploiting us1
 
We've had enough
Africa has had enough, enough, enough
We've had enough
The people has had enough, enough, enough
 
We have to stop condoning that
Ouf brothers' lives are worth nothing for this bunch of traitors
Let's end the wars, let's keep our faith
All the state leaders who send us to kill our brothers can go to hell
They don't respect us, neither do their laws
They don't even pay attention when the people demands its rights
They would never share the money, though there is plenty of it
They do nothing to help our sister who sell themselves to survive in this world
 
We've had enough
Africa has had enough, enough, enough
We've had enough
The people has had enough, enough, enough
 
Murdering presidents,
we don't want them anymore!
Generals in control,
we don't want them anymore!
Child soldiers
we don't want them anymore
War orphans
we don't want them anymore
We've had enough
Africa has had enough, enough, enough
We've had enough
The people have had enough, enough, enough
Africa has had enough
of all these schemes
My people has had enough
of all these manipulations
Africa has had enough
of all these exploitations
My people has had enough
of all this oppression
Africa has had enough
 
  • 1. Mmm... Not sure my last boss came from Babylon, but he sure knew what exploitation meant
Do whatever you want with my translations. I'm not rich enough to sue you anyway.
