Peter Tosh - Fight Apartheid Lyrics




You in a me land
Quite illegal
You're in a me land
Dig out me gold
In a me land
Digging out me pearls
In a me land
Dig out me diamonds

We a go fight [3x] against apartheid
We got to fight [3x] against apartheid

You're in a me land
And you build up your 'partment
You're in a me land
You build up you're regimes
You're in a me land
Only talk 'bout justice
You're in a me land
Handing down injustice

[Chorus]

You're in a me land (Precedes each line below)
You no build no school for black children
No hospital for black people
You build your prison
You build their camp

[Chorus]

Africa's for black man
Remember
There certain place in Africa
Black man get no recognition

[Chorus]

You cross the border
You shoot off the children
Cross the border
Shoot down women
Cross the border
You take your might
Cross the border
To beat for right

[Chorus]

As for majority
Majority rule, yea
Who need minority
But that couldn't rule, yea

[Chorus]

You break off
Break off from Britain
You're quite illegal
Right where you are
You get your forces
From colonial powers
Taking my diamonds
Filling ballistic missiles

[Chorus]

Peter Tosh Fight Apartheid Comments
  1. Nikho Mngadi

    The man who started the band Wailers Bob Marley's teacher in music the great Peter Tosh I'm writing to the world lm from South Africa KZN Durban Toti 7km away from Indian Ocean KwaMakhutha "Nsipho "

  2. James Grant

    Rather than Katusha Rockets the Gaza-Palestinians should set up a large sound system at the border and launch some Peter Tosh over into Israel...Lol ! Non-violent protests are the only lasting solution....not more blood-shed...

  3. Randy William

    The greatest of them all is Peter period. This man was so black and beautiful that I became a Rasta because of him. It’s a shame that when people talks about reggae music that his name is not above bob..
