Arise o Nigeria

Arise o compatriot
Nigeria’s call obey…
Now that our sweet
Has turned sour;
Let’s not talk in vain
About teas and tales;

Arise o compatriot
Listen to our adages;
Lost is to any child
Who knows not his root
Find our native fowls,
And expose an evil deed…

Arise o compatriot
Milk and honey is here
Buried in an African soil
Let’s build our motherland.
Unity is all it takes
To peacfully wave the flag.

Arise o compatriot
And take us back to great;
Don’t steal sugar cubes
Or wreck these testtubes,
We are already a design
Let’s correct the foundation.

Arise o compatriot,
Let’s repaint the lands,
Far from greedy minds
And selfish democratism…
Interested in potbellies;
Arise o fellow Nigerians.
