I Play the Kora

Les Amazones d’Afrique
Language: English




I'm your mother - love me
I'm your sister - love me
I'm your wife - you do not have the right to beat me
We women, all the women
We want to be respected

Men listen to us
The song we'll sing goes to you
our troubles and sorrows are our weapons
And we women want to share them with you

The things you have done to me
It is enough now
How you have played me and used
Together we will be stronger
To overcome the obstacles on our path
Together we will be proud
To have raised our children in love and peace
Men, join our fight
Men, protect us as companions

I'm your mother - love me
I'm your sister - love me
I'm your wife - you do not have the right to beat me
We women, all the women
We want to be respected

Respect me, as I respect you
Because I am indipendent
Men, do not ruin my life
And do not put me aside and decide for myself
To overcome the obstacles on our path
Women, listen our message

I'm your mother - love me
I'm your sister - love me
I'm your wife - you do not have the right to beat me
We women, all the women
We want to be respected

Don’t keep me from going to school,
I want to learn to count and write.
I don’t want to be someone else’s shadow.
Do not laugh and make fun of me
when I say I want to be president of my country,
Don't make fun of me, Women wake up!
A woman is leading Liberia today

I'm your mother - love me
I'm your sister - love me
I'm your wife - you do not have the right to beat me
We women, all the women
We want to be respected

Don't accept
Never accept
to be the shadow of yourself.
