Kokopo Lyrics

Mp3 Song

[Verse 1]
See the yellow moon arise
With the changing of the tide
Our strong vessel has arrived
We thank God we have survived
Then they gather the warriors
To runway the foreigners
They incite our fears
When they greet us with spears
So help us Jah
For we've come this far
Is this our final day?
Should we stay or run away?

[Chorus]
From Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo

[Verse 2]
There will be no revival
If we do not have survival
The cannibals have scared us away
To a different bay
But to our greatest fears
We are greeted here
By different warriors with different shields
But they have the same spears

[Chorus]
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo

[Interlude]

[Bridge]
We were praying in one key
Praising in harmonies
One, two, and three
They had never heard such a sound
And in unison, they put their weapons down
They drop their shields, and snap their bows
They broke their spears, and their arrows
Then they came bearing gifts, and with shell offerings
Saying, "How can we buy?
We need to have just what you are selling"

[Chorus]
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo

[Verse 3]
They will not fight
They've broken their swords
And opened their lives
To the Lord of our Lords
From the Duke of Yotk
Through East New Britain
Papua New Guinea
Is becoming Christian and

[Chorus]
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo
Kokopo, Kokopo

[Verse 4]
We will not fret
No, we won't fear
For we love you, Kokopo
Yes, we are welcome here
Kokopo
We will not fret
Kokopo
No, we won't fear
Kokopo
For we love you, Kokopo
Kokopo
We're coming back next year
