We went down to the Peachtree Manor
To see Oginga Odinga
The police say, “what’s the matter?”
To see Oginga Odinga
The police he look mighty hard
At Oginga Odinga
He got scared ‘cause he was an ex Mau-Mau
To see Oginga Odinga.

Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya – who?
Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya.
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru – ha! haaa!
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru - ha! haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!

Oginga Odinga say “look-a here,
What’s going on down in Selma?
If you white folks don’t straighten up,
I’m gone call Jomo Kenyatta”

Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya – who?
Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya.
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru – ha! haaa!
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru - ha! haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!

The white folks down in Mississippi
Will knock you on your rump
And if you holler Freedom
You’ll wind up in the swamp.

Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya – who?
Oginga Odinga, Oginga Odinga,
Oginga Odinga of Kenya.
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru – ha! haaa!
Uh-hu-hu-hu-ru - ha! haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!
Freedom now! .. ow .. oww haaa!
