​They Came and Took

This song is by Bamaselo and appears on the album Natural (2007).

Sha na na naa na na waaa
Sha na na naa na na waaa
Sha na na naa na na waaa, oh lord

Most keep on struggling (struggling, struggling, struggling)
When some are having fun (having fun)
Men keep on wondering (wondering, wondering, wondering)
When will their trials be won (Ooh)
There's just no rights for some (rights for some)
When you were born with a dark complexion
For in Jah world (Jah, Jah world)
Which is controlled by the evil man (evil man, evil man, evil man)

The systems sustained by politicians
And they came and took
All the wealth from our land
And now there is sand desert land and cold starvation
But on this land what is for man shall be for man (shall be for man)
And in time to come Ethiopians
Shall stretch out there hands
Peace be with you my fellow Africans
Peace push on through for your an Rastaman
Peace be with you my fellow brother African

For in Jah world (Jah, Jah world)
Which is controlled by the evil man (evil man, evil man, evil man)

And now there is sand desert land and cold starvation
But on this land what is for man shall be for man (shall be for man)
And in time to come Ethiopians shall stretch out their hands
Peace be with you my fellow Africans
Peace push on through for you're a Rastaman
Peace be with you my fellow brother African
