|Marcus - Win The Fray!|
|1. O! when the Negro makes himself a man,|
The wicked world will see a new parade;
The blacks will march in one tremendous clan
A great phalanx of noble fighting braves.
2. The day that Africa awakes, in deed,
And black men cease to dream away the time,
The scoffing tribes of other men will heed,
The race's claims of sober righteousness.
3. It's then for you to think and act to-day,
And show of what good mettle you are made
It's not what other men may do or say,
But just how game you are to win the stake.
|Haile Selassie I|
