UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound,

I am trapped,

I am disillusioned,

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound by world oil prices,

I am trapped by the demand for the dollar,

I am disillusioned by the effects of the recession.

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound by my reliance on western solutions,

I am trapped by my dependence on the World Bank,

I am disillusioned by the absence of an able leader

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound by political propaganda,

I am trapped by solitary success,

I am disillusioned overrated oratory,

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound by lack of foresight,

I am trapped blatant revolt,

I am disillusioned neo this and that.

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

I want UHURU

I have been bound,

I am trapped,

I am disillusioned,

UHURU, I cry, UHURU

UHURU- Swahili for freedom
