Liberia my home

Australian by paper
Liberian by blood
Liberia is my motherland 
Liberia in my round hips   
that they criticis of not being 
worthy of "beauty".
Liberia in my big lips
that will forever speak the truth .
Liberia in my ways
Liberia is my ways
They will tell you my country is 
bad, it's dangerous, they even 
make the mistake of saying 
"Africa" is a poor and disgusting 
country, forgetting to know its a 
damn continent with beautiful 
and extraordinary countries. 
You can't fool me with your 
"white ways", I'm a native 
daughter of the most beautiful 
land, I value my culture, it runs 
through my vines...

lah a there oo
