The Choice is Ours

The Choice is Ours And so here we are on the brink of d-day This week we will know how our future will sway The duffer, the bluffer, the candidates with the muffler Which one of these candidates will we have to suffer If you voted for friendship go jump in the sea If you voted for abstract plans you're dumber than they If you voted for empty promises then that should be fine Because sooner or later the they will resign Democracy demands we give them a chance But this time I think we should join in the dance Coz whoever they are, the students at the helm The Gambia College still belongs to us, not only to them We gave them their seats, the nineteenth you know We voted them to power between me and you But whether they prove to be wise candidates or fools This college is ours so let's play by the rules Let's not break the law, can we please stand in line Let's not pull those strings to avoid paying IEC fine Let's finally get that a red light means stop Let's not stoop to bribing the poor students cop Let's be part of the reason our Gambia College is great Let's be good students before it's too late Let's serve our great College without hesitation Let's all work together to build a strong unification Enough of the trolling, the barbs and the fights Now let's stick together, stand up for our rights They might have the seats, the nineteenth we still know But the College belongs to me and to you And we're a thousand students, a thousand and plus At the end of the day, the choice is ours Until then, make no mistakes
