K’Naan – Wavin’ Flag (The Celebration Mix) [lyrics]

Official anthem of the 2010 FIFA World Cup

Lyrics (lyricsty.com)
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh X2

Give me freedom, give me fire
Give me reason, take me higher
See the champions take the field now
Unify us, make us feel proud
In the streets our heads are liftin’
As we lose our inhibition
Celebration, it surrounds us
Every nation, all around us

[Bridge]
Singing’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath the sun
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game, and together at the end of the day

[Chorus]
We all say,
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh X2

Give you freedom, give you fire
Give you reason, take you higher
See the champions take the field now
Unify us, make us feel proud
In the streets our heads are liftin’
As we lose our inhibition
Celebration, it surrounds us
Every nation, all around us

[Bridge]
Singing’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath the sun
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game, and together at the end of the day

[Corus]
We all say,
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh X2
We all say,
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh
And everybody will be singing it
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh
And we all will be singing it…

Chorus
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a waving flag

Verse 1
born to a throne
stronger than rome
but violent prone
poor people zone
but it’s my home
all i have known
where i got grown
streets we would roam
out of the darkness
i came the farthest
among the hardest survival
learn from these streets
it can be bleak
accept no defeat
surrender retreat (so we struggling)
fighting to eat (and we wondering)
when we will be free
so we patiently wait
for that fateful day
its not far away
for now we say

Repeat Chorus
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a waving flag
and then it goes back (3x)

and then it go when i get older i will be
stronger they call me freedom just
like a waving flag
and then it goes back (3x)
oh oh oh

so many wars settling scores
bringing us promises, leaving us poor
i heard them say love is the way
love is the answer that’s what they say
but look how they treat us lyrics from museke.com
make us believers make we
fight there battes then they deceive us
try to control us they couldn’t holf us

cause we just move forward
just like buffalo soldiers (so we struggling)
fighting to eat (so we wondering)
when we will be free
so we patiently wait
for that fateful day
its not that far away
for now we say

Repeat Chorus

and than everybody will be singing it
and you and i will be singing it
and we all will be singing it
wo wah wo ah wo ah

Repeat Chorus till fade
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom just like a waving flag

Just a like waving flag

The Dusty Foot Philosopher and Troubadour man, @iamknaan, is the singer behind the official anthem for the Mzansi Mundial in June this year. Waving Flag, probably K’Naan’s most popular song to date, is undoubtedly an African song and calls on us to “release our African rhythm all over the world”.

The Somalian rapper, K’Naan Warsame, is based in Toronto, Canada and Los Angeles, USA. The video is directed by Nabil Elderkin and produced by Sol Guy. There is a cameo by Damian Marley. The original lyrics for Waving Flag can be foundhere. Here are the lyrics for the remix.

Ooooooh Wooooooh, Ooooooh Wooooooh

Give me freedom, give me fire, give me reason, take me higher
See the champions, take the field now, you define us, make us feel proud
In the streets our heads are lifting, as we lose our inhibition,
Celebration, it surround us, every nations, all around us

Singing forever young, singing songs underneath that sun
Lets rejoice in the beautiful game,
And together at the end of the day.
We all say

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
So wave your flag, now wave your flag, now wave your flag

Oooohhh, Oooooooooh wooooohh, Oooooooooh wooooohh

Give you freedom, give you fire, give you reason, take you higher
See the champions, take the field now, you define us, make us feel proud
In the streets our heads are lifting, as we lose our inhibition,
Celebration, its around us, every nations, all around us

Singing forever young, singing songs underneath that sun
Lets rejoice in the beautiful game,
And together at the end of the day.
We all say

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
So wave your flag, now wave your flag, now wave your flag
Now wave your flag (4x)

Oohhoooohh Woooh Ohohooooh Wooohoooh

We all say
When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a wavin’ flag
So wave your flag, now wave your flag, now wave your flag
Now wave your flag (4x)

Oooooh woowoo ooh Wooo ooohh ooohoh
And everybody will be singing it
Oooooh woowoo ooh Wooo ooohh ooohoh
And we all will be singing it
