Homeland Africa (Ship Ahoi) - Lyrics by Boney M


Lyrics
Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi
Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi
Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi
Down the ocean a ship comes sailing through the waves
Filled with hundreds of men they take as slaves
Just long for their true Homeland Africa
And to be saved they want to be free
Men women and babyslaves
Coming to the land of liberty, liberty
Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi...
They are tired of waiting for a brand new day
Some of them sing and chant some of them pray
And some men got a little tired too
No one knows if the journey pay
Men women and babyslaves
Coming to the land of liberty, liberty
Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi Ship Ahoi...
