Lyrics for "Stand United" (ft. Teddy Ziggy)

TEDDY ZIGGY

This is a new one from Teddy Ziggy
this time i'm doing it with Karamanti
incase ya dont know it's Waddup Riddim
weda black weda white,make we stand United

KARAMANTI

we shall stand united
africans we not divided
and it no matter yo which part yo live
every black man unnu listen this

we shall stand united
history is not repeated
dem cyaa come tek way wi tings
every black woman unnu listen this

by di grace a di father
we ago uplift we sons and daughters
we ago set we whole life in order
we in charge now no slave master
from trinidad back to Jamaica

TEDDY ZIGGY

Wetin we dey fight for,sing me no know
shooting and Killing no really follow
make we drop this violence for ground o
cos na Unity go help us to stand oo
when me say,lets be our Brothers keep
cos religion tribal war is not the answer (hmmm)

KARAMANTI

we shall stand united
africans we not divided
and it no matter yo which part yo live
every black man unnu listen this

we shall stand united

bun a fyah pan di blasted pagan

di two biggest tools a seperation
one a politics and di next a religion

we shall stand united
africans we not divided
and it no matter yo which part yo live
every black man unnu listen this

we shall stand united
history is not repeated
dem cyaa come tek way wi tings
every black woman unnu listen this

TEDDY ZIGGY

when i say Rea,you say Lity
it's right time we start thinking positively
when i say Rea,you say Lity wah wah wah wah
e no matter where ya come from
weda black weda white all we need is one love
e no matter your culture or tradition
christians and muslim lets stop segregation
Bob Marley sing
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
and have no fear for atomic energy
cos none but ourselves can free our minds
we suppose to live like mum and daddy yo
cos all dem dey see na different colours
but all i dey see na same one red blood
cos all dem dey see na different colours
but all me i dey see na same one red blood
oh na na na
one people aii
yeh na na na
say one red blood

outro
Reality tune you know
Teddy Ziggy,Karamanti
yeah


"Stand United" was produced by Major P (based in Czech Republic). Vocals were written and performed by Teddy Ziggy and Karamanti, respectively. The collaboration was organized by my agent and the video was shot in Prague while I was on tour.

Shooting the video was a lot, and I emphasize, a lot of work! Though you see Teddy wearing a tank top, it was actually freezing cold because this was late November, I think. For my part, I had to change outfits right on that bridge, in the freezing cold, with nothing but a few women to shield me... lol.

On a more serious note, this is hands down one of my favorite songs because of the words that came to life through me, for it. I believe in everything that I say on this record, my only hope is that more of my people would believe it also.
