Say My Name (Calypso 80s) Lyrics

By Ella Andall


Do you have the information or a simple explanation
Telling who gave who the authority
So to change my name, my identity
To replace the fame of great queens of light
To the lies of misery and strife
You with your pale mind so ashamed
You with your weak heart still in chains
No respect for human blood sacrifice
Our ancestors fed to the plantation.

Say my name. [Say it, say it!] I'm an African
Say your name. [Say it, say it!] We are Africans
For survival we need a revival
For survival we need a revival.

Do you know what strength and courage
Brought me through the Middle Passage?
Still I strive with pride and dignity
As I tried to cling to my ancestry
With these hands of steel forged in Africa
And the blood of all the Yoruba
You, who came dancing from my womb
Now you lay silent as a tomb
It is time to wake from your life of death [debts?]
And to regain all your lost respect.

Say my name. [Say it, say it!] I'm an African
Say your name. [Say it, say it!] We are Africans
For survival we need a revival
For survival we need a revival.

As I walk this global domain
With Nzinga blood in my vein
I shall call the children of Mahalia
To protect the name of our forefathers
We shall never bow ----- our heads again
But ----- stand firm in the face of pain
I am the mother and the flame
I am keeper of your claim
To a place of greatness in history
It is I who named you after me.

Say my name. [Say it, say it!] I'm an African
Say your name. [Say it, say it!] We are Africans
For survival we need a revival
For survival we need a revival.
