Not only a colour
I am a black man !
Black like the lovely soil of my Africa !
You black woman, You are a bright shining star
In a moonless and cloudless night. Wow !
Listen to now,
For I shall raise from the bottom of all despise
My feather full of love and words for the black race
Although black and white are all the same human race.
Black is not merely a colour to love or to hate ,
Black is comely and really
I repeat : a favour of grace,
The very cradle of human race.
I am crazy for you in this day ,
This is why I sing and say :
I shall love you today, oh happy day, Africa’s day
I shall love you forever my Africa of everyday !
May the brightness of your blackness
Lighten the darkness of our hopeless earth !
From on high, the love and light,
Yes, the might of the Most High
Will raise my most beloved and dearest Africa up.
