400 years (400 years, 400 years. wo-o-o-o)
And it's the same -
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy.
I've said its four hundred years;
(400 years, 400 years. wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Look, how long (wo-o-o-o)
And the people they (wo-o-o-o) still can't see.
Why do they fight against the poor youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone -
All gone astray.
Come on, let's make a move:
(make a move, make a move. wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
I can (wo-o-o-o) see time (wo-o-o-o) - time has come,
And if-a fools don't see
(fools don't see, fools don't see. wo-o-o-o)
I can't save the youth:
The youth (wo-o-o-o) is gonna be strong.
So, wont you come with me;
Ill take you to a land, of liberty..
Where we can live - live a good, good life,
And be free..
Look how long: 400 years, (400 years, 400 years) -
Way too long! (wo-o-o-o)
That's the reason my people (wo-o-o-o) - my people can't see.
Said, its four hundred long years - (400 years, 400 years. wo-o-o-o)
Give me patience (wo-o-o-o) - same philosophy.
It's been 400 years, (400 years, 400 years)
Wait so long! wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o.
How long? 400 long, long years.
