Lyrics

Oh oh oh oh oh oh 2x

Our Leaders respect this peace agreement

Our Leaders protect this peace agreement

Our soldiers respect this peace agreement

South Sudan, keep this peace agreement

We wanna go home, home home 2x

Lah lah lah lah le shakila tani 2x

We are tired, tired, tired of war

 

(First verse)

Hear our cry, our cry, our cry

Hear our voice from Bidibidi Camp

Consider our pain

consider our future

consider our pain

consider our future

we are tire, tired, tired of war

(Rap)

I can’t just hold my tears because the pain is too much that I can’t bear to see myself

Getting out every morning in a foreign country

I am so tired, so tired, I really miss home

I wanna get home to see my motherland South Sudan the land that flows with milk and honey

So do something on the peace because I wanna really be home

(A word)

Our leaders thank you for signing peace

It is time to show that you can be trusted

it is time to respect and honor your decision

No more gunshot

No more shedding blood

 

Ref

Oh oh oh oh oh oh 2x

South Sudan, keep this peace agreement

We wanna go home, home home 2x

Lah lah lah lah le shakila tani 2x

We are tired, tired, tired of war 2x

 

(Second Verse)

The world is waiting

We are waiting

Refugees in Uganda

We are waiting

Refugees in Kenya

They are waiting

Refugees in Congo

They are waiting

We are tired, tired, tired of war 2x

 

Ref

Oh oh oh oh oh oh 2x

Our Leaders respect this peace agreement

Our Leaders protect this peace agreement

Our soldiers respect this peace agreement

South Sudan, keep this peace agreement

We wanna go home, home home 2x

Lah lah lah lah le shakila tani 2x

We are tired, tired, tired of war
