GARVEY

“Garvey!”
They shouting “Garvey,”
The man with the lessons
That he got as a blessing.

He led us triumphantly to liberation,
In a time of racial segregation,
where we were treated unfairly
based on our complexion.

To the oppressors of his race,
he was a unbearable thorn
From dusk till dawn.
They tried to frame,
Put him to shame
all their actions went in vain.

“Garvey!”
They shouting “Garvey,”
The man with the lessons
That he got as a blessing.

The man made his mark,
that inspired many hearts
From the likes of Mandela,
Nkrumah and Rosa Parks.

Self reliance is the message,
going forward is the plan.
From the man,
big in virtue
short in stature.

“Garvey!”
They shouting “Garvey,”
The man with the lessons
That he got as a blessing.

we are living on lands,
that are not our own,
He said’
back to mother Africa,
to claim our thrones,

One God!
One Aim!
One Destiny!
Words from the man,
To the black nation,

We must
“Up ye Mighty Race…….”
For we are strong,

“Marcus Mosiah Garvey”,
Black mans greatest champion.
