400 years


400 years (400 years, 400 years, Wo-o-o-o)
And it's the same
The same philosophy
I've said it's four hundred years
(400 years, 400 years)
Look, how long
And the people they still can't see
Why do they fight against (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)
I can see time, 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 is gonna be strong
So, won't you come with me (come with me)
I'll take you to a land of liberty
Where we can live (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 why my people, my people can't see
Said, it's 400 years (400 years, 400 years)
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
