Only on the Coasts of Africa

Give me the horn to blow
The shores of sand and sun
While the birds sing and fly
The children run and jump

Give me the net to fish
The seas of the brave
While the canoes hoist their flags
The men drag their nets

Give me the tune for the African melody
The smoke of the fire are here
While the women prepare the catch
The family gathers by the fire side

Give me the coasts of Africa
The entrance of the love 
While the mighty still stands
The people will mend the nets of peace
