Elegy of the green white green

 By slipperymind

The labor of our heroes past has ended up in vain

Cause the people we put in power are people whose minds are vain

The money and the fame,the only reasons they came.

Ancestors of the Green white green

I’m sure you’ve been put to shame

Crying in your graves,your children here are doing the same

suffering in pain

Your name has been put to shame

Giants of Africa,nothing to show for

Arise oh compatriot,stop sleeping in your sofa

Peace have long left your land

we’re now suffering in unity
Arise oh green white green

You’ve been dead for so long

the world is now dancing to your burial song

Arise oh compatriot,Nigeria call obey.
