Intro: This is Kibera and as the sun sets behind the silhouette of the city there is a side of Nairobi, Kenya that tourists never see. An ocean of people living in abject poverty with no running water, sewage or electricity. It's been documented as the largest slum in Africa...
There is a place in the heart of the Motherland (Africa) So many livin' in poverty that I just can't understand They used to live like kings but now they're slaves to the system They used to rule as warriors but now they're the victims
Chorus: Woe Nairobi Woe Nairobi We're calling the warriors who are fighting for justice Calling emancipators Come on and help us Woe ya ya
Oh ya ya ya
Make shift zinc houses that is where they sleep Full up of diseases and the stench of the rubbish heap Civilized people just fighting for the dollar Surrounded by evil living in a squalor--Nairobi
Bridge: So what you gonna do? What you gonna do to make a difference? Utafanya nini? Utafanya nini? (What will you do?) For the situation? (Repeat) ...to solve this problem
ooh wele... It starts with you and me...
We're calling the warriors We're calling emancipators Oh yes we're calling the freedom fighters Just come on and help us oh yeah
Mola wangu nisaidie (My God, help me!) Maisha huku Kibich ni magumu (Life in Kibera is hard!) Tafadhali nisaidie (Please help me!) Nitafanya nini (What can I do?)
