K'naan - Wavin' Flag (Single Version)

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
Ohoohoo

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
But violent prone, poor people zone
But it’s my home, all I have known
Where I got grown, streets we would roam
Out of the darkness, I came the farthest
Among the hardest survival
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak
Except no defeat, surrender retreat

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day
It’s not far away, so for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
Ohoohoo

So many wars, settling scores
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor
I heard them say, love is the way
Love is the answer, that’s what they say,
But look how they treat us, make us believers
We fight their battles, then they deceive us
Try to control us, they couldn’t hold us
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers

But we struggling, fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day
It’s not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back

(Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhhooh, Ohhhhooh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhhooh, Ohhhhooh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhhooh, Ohhhhooh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh, Ohhhhooh)

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
Woohoohoo

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a waving flag
(Ohhoo, ohhoo, ohhoo, ohhoo, ohhoo)
Just like a waving flag, just like a waving flag
Flag, flag, just like a waving flag
