The Legend of Soccer

A legend was sent
October 1, 1966
Far from above 
To the nation of Liberia
While angels celebrate

He played with his peers
He grow up in the land
He tasted the bitter side of life
While great treasures
Lay silently in him

At the right times of life
Heaven directed him
With his legs
To kick the ball
In his yard,
In his community,
In his school,
And over continents of the world

He made his country name to be heard
He made his country to shine
The flag of the Lonestar weaved over nations
His name was sung in many languages
With great love for his country
His people has a portion in his heart

Hail the legend of soccer
A true son of Africa
Reconciling his people
Putting every tribe together
To eat the meal of peace
To enjoy the love of liberty
That brought us together
