K’naan - Wavin’ Flag Lyrics

Ooooh Wooooh
Give me freedom, give me fire, give me reason, take me higher
See the champions, take the field now, you define us, make us feel proud
In the streets are, hands are lifting , as we lose our inhibition,
Celebration it’s around us, every nation, all around us

Singin’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath the sun
Lets 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 (x2)

Ooooh woohh hohoho

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 are, hands are lifting, as we lose our inhibition,
Celebration, it’s around us, every nations, all around us

Singin’ forever young, singin’ songs underneath the sun
Lets 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 (x4)

Woooooo Ohohohoooo ! OOOoooh Woooo
And we are all singin’ it.
