A country fertile and filled with hue,
Mother Africa I bring to you
A tale of the Akan.
Deep within our mother Earth there once was a sacred birth,
Seven men, five women, a Leopard and dog
Crawled into a new world filled with fog.
Adu the first of man understood the world,
And its wonder and was one of a few
To stare without blunder.
With the hands of magic, he gave them power
How tragic it would be, him killed by a simple old tree.
7 men, five women a leopard and a dog crawled back,
With grins on their chins the southern wind blew grim.
