Zimbabwe Lyrics - Bob Marley

Review The Song (24)

Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny,
And in this judgement there is no partiality.
So arm in arms, with arms, we'll fight this little struggle,
'Cause that's the only way we can overcome our little trouble.

Brother, you're right, you're right,
You're right, you're right, you're so right!
We gon' fight (we gon' fight), we'll have to fight (we gon' fight),
We gonna fight (we gon' fight), fight for our rights!

Natty Dread it in-a (Zimbabwe);
Set it up in (Zimbabwe);
Mash it up-a in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Africans a-liberate (Zimbabwe), yeah.

No more internal power struggle;
We come together to overcome the little trouble.
Soon we'll find out who is the real revolutionary,
'Cause I don't want my people to be contrary.

And, brother, you're right, you're right,
You're right, you're right, you're so right!
We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), we gonna fight (we gon' fight)
We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), fighting for our rights!

Mash it up in-a (Zimbabwe);
Natty trash it in-a (Zimbabwe);

You're right, you're right, you're so right!
We gon' fight (we gon' fight), we'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight),
We gonna fight (we gon' fight), fighting for our rights!

To divide and rule could only tear us apart;
In everyman chest, mm - there beats a heart.
So soon we'll find out who is the real revolutionaries;
And I don't want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.

Brother, you're right, you're right,
You're right, you're right, you're so right!
We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), we gonna fight (we gon' fight),
We'll 'ave to fight (we gon' fight), fighting for our rights!

Natty trash it in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Mash it up in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Set it up in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);

Africans a-liberate Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Natty dub it in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe).

Set it up in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Africans a-liberate Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);
Every man got a right to decide his own destiny.

Marley we need you again | Reviewer: Zimbabwean | 2/26/12

Zimbabwe was in turmoil then, and he sang a message of unity to face down the oppression. She is once again in turmoil, but he has left us. who now will sing? We must stand together again, Shona and Ndebele, to face down the oppression of a regime, not of a Shona man. A regime that negatively effects both Shona and Ndebele.

Do not stand with this man and his crooked cronies my brothers. He is not your father, he takes the food from the mouths of your children and those of your neighbours! We have to fight again.

long live Marley | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/30/11

(Every man has the right to decide his own destiny)do we have that right in Zimbabwe now? Bob Marley, may his soul rest in peace is turning in his grave now seeing as the pseudo revolutionaries have shed the sheep skin and come out in the open for what they really are (mercenaries). They publicly speak some yet do the contrary. Who is the real revolutionary here? Elections are rigged so where has the right to decide our own destiny go to? Who does Mugabe think he is to decide what we want or what is good for us. We elected him out but being a Dictator that he is he thought that we made a mistake, due to our lack of education we put our x's in the wrong place when we actually meant to vote for him. if he really cared about land reform why did he redistribute land when he started to lose popularity? If he really is a brilliant as some of you out there purport him to be then why didn't he come with any economic policy that is purely African and independent from the western led world bank and IMF so that those sanctions wouldn't be effective? Ian Smith managed to keep the country afloat during sanctions, that showed the genius of the then government. Yes they were racist bigots but we never starved, we never left our country in droves to be killed in xenophobic violence next door. A real father protects his children and Mugabe is not a real father to us children of the soil. he destroyed our future.
Nowadays the world has turned global and we all have become global citizens so it does not matter what pigmentation you are, you have a right to decide your own destiny

Triple Bob, 1. Mugabe 2. Marley and 3. I. | Reviewer: Zimba Robbie | 3/12/11

At least he does wat's right 4 African people. (Mugabe). Our fore parents were murdered, raped, used, abused and refused by dis here white people's parents. Look wat happen here in SA. Dem black people, I and I brethrens and sistrens in da rural areas dem suffer in da hands of white downppresors. South Africans you are collected not connected you claim to be happy but deep down you know you are not. Dem say: if you are white you are pecfectly right. If you brown you can stick around. If you are black stay in the back. That's stupendous.

Zimbabwe | Reviewer: D-Vni | 3/9/11

Brethrens, Babylonians should not blind us of the truth in Zimbabwe. It's nothing to do with 'Bob' Mugabe, its simply what Bob Marley had sang 'They keep us hungry,And when you gonna get some food,
Your brother got to be your enemy.
Open your eyes and reflect cos Babylon shall never conquer over Zion.

Zimbabwe lyrics | Reviewer: Sipho | 3/8/11

Silah, I just want to say Bob Marley the prophet was only supporting every moral deeds done by the freedom fighters. It is sad that today when I and I listen to this song it may mean something else. However bob marley was not supporting dictatorship ideology. And Mugabe is a Dictator and Marley has got the political revolutionary spirit. I and I must not compare there two they are incomparable. Selah

Damn Mugabe! | Reviewer: Raphael | 3/8/11

Any one who praises Mugabe is in partnership with evil and lives by evil. Marley said the truth but you choose lies instead. Marley wanted no more internal power struggle, but Mugabe have succeded in disstabilising Zimbabwe through undemocratic elections by rigging, thugery, political intimidations u name them. Thereby impossing him self on the people and looting thier treasury, increasing racism, he is such a fool! and so are all his supporters. Damn you!

People... | Reviewer: Zus | 1/30/11

Please, stop praising Mugabe. He's a murderous dictator. I don't care what ethnicity you are. If you praise him, you praise Hitler. You praise Stalin. You praise genocides. If you haven't heard Damien Marley and Nas' song 'Road to Zion' you should take a listen. They don't support him, yet you people still do.. Wtf, man. Plus, if you remember, or know your history, the independence day concert was even a mini-riot where Bob almost lost faith in his music and message, because the country was turning on themselves not even one day into a new country.

Zimbabwe | Reviewer: Nino Hunt | 1/4/11


Mugabe did not invite Bob Marley to Zimbabwe, he infact wanted Cliff Richard to sing at Zimbabwe's independence celebrations in 1980.

Mugabe is protecting the former dictator of Ethopia who was responsible for the murder thousands of Ethopians and the assasination of Emperor Haile Selassie.

Bob Marley was not a racist and his music still has a message and that message is freedom for the oppressed. Mugabe is an oppressor no better than Cecil Rhodes or Ian Smith.
"Every man got a right to decide his own destiny" lets hope the next elections will be free and fair as Mugabe lost the last one but decided the people of Zimbabwe made a mistake and that it was best he decide for them and continue oppressing them.

Thank you white child of zimbawe | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/4/11

That is a very interesting prospective on the whole situation. I'm glad you're safe now. As a child of genocide myself, I could say no child should ever experience that. You are right, noone should praise someone that protects only one race and not the other. You tell the world! Write a book!

a white child of Zimbabwe | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/22/10

Wow. I'm 15.. haven't lived or been back to Zim in 13 years... My parent's were forced, as white Zimbabweans, out because people protested down the street where smy mother worked and she was stuck in the building for hours.. leaving me, a 2 year old WHITE child, in the hand's of my black maid...
And you think that's right? Yes, European's came.. they over-took the country, treated Black's like Kak.. like Dog's off the street... but why, if knowing how it feels, would you Praise a guy who's MURDERING such a beautiful country? Why put a bad name to the country you are born/raised/ lived in?
I don't know about many of you... but sometime's I am ASHAMED to even admit I'm from Zimbabwean.. and I'm WHITE..
You guy's praising Mugabe is like people cheering on Hitler... you're killing a beautiful race and sacrificing your own country...
To be honest, the sooner Mugabe dies, people realise people are people no matter what their skin colour or their origin and some peace and order is restored in Zimbabwe... the better it will be for not only White and Black Zimbabweans but the rest of the world...
From a White Zimbabwean child..

NO TO NEO COLONIALISM | Reviewer: NJAMA | 1/8/10

Long live mr Mugambe and never ever lick the yankees boot like other african leaders.You are a hero,together with the people like Patrice lumumba,Field marshal Dedan kimathi waciuri,agostinho neto and many others.History will always judge you right no matter what stinking uncle Tom tries to call you.

The war is not over | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/28/09

You brethrens are mis'overstanding' the message and the history. Nesta Marley is preaching the truth, Africa needs to be liberated. When he is taling about "Brother you're right!!", he is talking about the man who invited him to Zimbabwe's independence inaguration--Comrade Robert Mugabe. Leaders like Mugabe are actually doing what needs to be done in Africa. Livicating themselves for the cause of the African People, chanting down Babylon and leading us to the gates of Zion.
