Wavin’ Flag

For the 2010 FIFA world cup coca cola chose a remixed version of  a song “Wavin’ Flag” by K’Naan as official anthem. I liked the song very much so I’m giving lyrics of both the original and world cup anthem called “celebration mix”

Wavin’ Flag(Celebration Mix)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh. [x2]
Give me freedom, give me fire, give me reason, take me higher.
See the champions, take the field now, unify us, make us feel proud.
In the streets our hands are liftin’, as we lose our inhibition.
Celebration It surrounds us, every nations, all around us.
Singin’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath that sun.
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game.
And together at the end of the day,
WE ALL SAY:
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
and wave your flag
and wave your flag
and wave your flag
and wave your flag
and then it goes:
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh. [x2]
Give you freedom, give you fire, give you reason, take you higher.
See the champions, take the field now, you define us, make us feel proud.
In the streets our hands are liftin’, as we lose our inhabition.
Celebration it’s around us, every nations, all around us.
Singin’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath that sun.
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game.
And together at the end of the day

WE ALL SAY:
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
And then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes:
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
And then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes:
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh. [x2]
WE ALL SAY:
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
And then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes:
When I get older, I will be stronger.
They’ll call me freedom. Just like a wavin’ flag.
And then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes back,
and then it goes:
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
and every body will be singin’ it.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.
and we are all singin’ it.

 

Wavin’ Flag lyrics


When i get older, they’ll call me freedom
Just like a Waving Flag.
[Chorus]
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
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.
But 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
[Chorus]
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,
[Chorus] 2x
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)
[Chorus] 2x
When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag
