Have you heard the news, we all come from Africa.
Every single one of us a piece of her legacy
The living proof marked in our chromosomes
Genetic mutations like rings in a tree
Tracing back echoes of our history.
To say every human on earth is related
Is the truth being stated quite literally
To claim we're a family regardless of race
Is a fact presented with accuracy.
To stand in denial of these revelations
Is really quite telling. you see; so pardon my asking
What designs does your intelligence really have on me?
Now that you know we're brothers and sisters
Obviously you can level with me--
I'm an American, your countryman--related by blood.
Take the mask off, it's easier to see.
Oh wait, you need to guarantee your anonymity
How can that be, I thought we lived in the land of the free
Of course, that's right, you live a double life, I see.
Has your other half heard the Good News,
That we're all from the same family tree?
