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.
