Hands Off Nkrumah

Jimmy Collier
Language: English



Hands off Nkrumah
That’s what the people say
Hands off Nkrumah
Mister C.I.A.
I’ll never believe it
And you can’t make me try
I’ll never turst a government
Set up by the F.B.I.

Way down in Ghana I heard they had a coup
Uh-huh, Mr. Capitalist,
We’re all hip to you
Supposedly for the Africans
A dictator was thrown out
Stealing that nation’s wealth
Lord, that’s what it was about

Hands off Nkrumah
That’s what the people say
Hands off Nkrumah
Mister C.I.A.
I’ll never believe it
And you can’t make me try
I’ll never turst a government
Set up by the F.B.I.
Let me tell you about Ghana
From our recent trip
You can travel more freely in Ghana
Than in Mississip.
If you know about our policy
You know we’re in a jam
That’s the kind of policy
That got us in Vietnam.

Hands off Nkrumah
That’s what the people say
Hands off Nkrumah
Mister C.I.A.
I’ll never believe it
And you can’t make me try
I’ll never turst a government
Set up by the F.B.I.

People in Africa
It’s their turn to be free
Liberty, equality and fraternity
Nkrumah right now is exiled
But he’s not out of sight
These loving people of Africa
Will join him in th fight.
