African
Peter Tosh
Album: Equal Rights

I don't care where you come from
as long as you are a black man you're an African.
No mind your nationality
you have got the identity of an African.

'Cause if you come from Clarendon (you are an African)
And if you come from Portland (you are an African)
And if you come from Westmoreland you're an African.

So I don't care where you come from
as long as you are a black man you're an African.
No mind your nationality
you have got the identity of an African.

'Cause if you come from Trinidad (you are an African)
And if you come from Nassau (you are an African)
And if you come from Cuba you're an African.

So don't care where you come from
as long as you are a black man you're an African.
No mind your complexion
there is no rejection you're an African.

'Cause if your 'plexion high, high, high!
If your 'plexion low, low, low!
And if your 'plexion in between you're an African!

So don't care where you come from
as long as you are a black man you're an African.
No mind denomination
that is only segregation you're an African.

'Cause if you go to the catholic (you are an African)
And if you go to the methodist (you are an African)
And if you go to the church of gods you're an African.

So don't care where you come from
as long as you are a black man you're an African.
No mind your nationality
you have got the identity of an African.

'Cause if you come from Brixton (you are an African)
And if you come from ??? (you are an African)
And if you come from ??? (you are an African)
And if you come from France (you are an African)
And if you come from Brooklyn (you are an African)
And if you come from Queens (you are an African)
And if you come from Manhattan (you are an African)
And if you come from Canada (you are an African)
And if you come from Miami (you are an African)
And if you come from Switzerland (you are an African)
And if you come from Germany (you are an African)
And if you come from Russia (you are an African)
