Rhythms Of Africa

RHYTHMS OF AFRICA
(Words and music by Kristian Bediiako)

Transported
Not in a slave ship
But in a twenty C flying house
Umpteen thousand miles across
Land and sea
To your door
I ain’t quitting
I ain’t leaving
I ain’t saying my bye, bye, bye, byes
Till I leave behind

Rhythms of Africa
Rhythms of Africa
Rhythms of Africa
Rhythms of Africa
Yedi aba oh
Yedi aba
Yedi aba oh
Yedi aba
Yedi aba oh
Yadi aba

Loosen your top, loosen the bot
Loosen the sides of your life
Loosen the front, loosen the back
Loosen the sides of your life

You don’t have to be so
Upper stiff
Feel no shame let your hair
Hair hang down

Mese betu
Mese betu
Mese betu

When you feel the rhythm flow through your body
When you hear the sounds of Africa

Then betu — dig it
Betu — dig it
Betu — dig it

Yedi aba oh
Yedi aba
Yedi aba oh
Yedi aba
Yedi aba oh
Yadi aba
