  • All twinklin' lee
    Can't see the right roads when the streets are paved
    The old slave men might grind slow
    But it grinds fine, yeah

    African herbsman, why linger on?
    Just concentrate, 'cause heaven lives on
    Retired slave men will look with a scorn
    With a transplanted heart (yes, how quick they had to part)
    (how quick they had to part)

    The remembrance of today
    Is the sad feelin' of tomorrow
    (how quick) Oh (part), oh yeah

    African herbsman, seize your time
    I'm takin' illusion on the edge of my mind
    I'm takin' losers down through my life
    Down through my life, yeah (yes, how quick they had to part)
    (how quick they had to part)

    Dideh part, yes, they part
    In remembrance of today
    (how quick they had to part)

    African herbsman, why linger on?
    Just concentrate, 'cause your heaven lives on
    Greet-I-eth slave men will look with a scorn
    With a transplanted heart, yes, how (quick they have to part)
    (how quick they have to part)

    In remembrance of today
    Brings sad feelings of tomorrow
    (Yes, how quick they have to) Lead me on, oh, Lord, I pray to you

    (African herbsman) (African herbsman)
    African, African herbsman
