這首歌是由索馬利亞出生的加拿大籍Rap藝人K'naan製作,已被選為2010年6月將在南非舉行的世界杯主題曲(2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™)。K'naan用簡單的字詞和明亮的節奏,完整的表達出索馬利亞的沉痛、堅強與希望。在過去的十幾年中,索馬利亞因長年的戰亂,連綿的內戰和大小衝突,加上政府、軍閥、武裝教派,不但讓索馬利亞民生造成極大的破壞,也因此造成數百萬的難民。進入21世紀之後,雖然非洲各國在政治上逐漸趨於穩定,但是天災和饑餓卻始終是他們揮之不去的夢魘。現在索馬利亞的新生兒、兒童和產婦死亡率幾乎是世界上最高的,而兒童入學率又幾乎是世界上最低的,人均壽命只有48歲。甚至為了食物,許多年輕的生命都夢想當個海盜。

其實這是一首很催淚的歌,我每次聽都不自覺得飆淚。這首歌希望能夠讓世界各地的人們懂得珍惜與分享,把愛心獻給那些正生活在煉獄的索馬利亞兒童們。






K'naan - Wavin' Flag


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 waving flag
and then it goes back (3x)


ahhho ahhho ahhho


born to a throne, stronger than rome
but violent prone, poor people zone
but its 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 survive
learn form these streets
it can be bleak, accept no defeet
surrender retreat (so we struggling)
fighting to eat (and we wondering)
when we will be free, so we patiently wait
for that faithful day, its 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 (3x)


ahhho ahhho ahhho


so many wars, settling scores
bring us promises, leaving us poor
i heard them say, love is the way
love is the answer, thats what they say


but look how they treat us, make us believers
we fight there battes, 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 will be free, so we patiently wait
for that faithfully day, its 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 (3x)


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 (3x)


ahhho ahhho ahhho


and everybody will be singing it
and you and i will be singing it
and we all will be singing it
wo wah wo ah wo ah


when i get older, i will be stronger
they'll call me freedom, just like a wavin flag
and then it goes back (3x)


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 (3x)


ahhho ahhho ahhho


when i get older
when i get older
i will be stronger
just like a wavin flag (3x)
