    Whooaaahh, weeeeell now, hey, whoa well

    The Promised Land, going to the Promised Land
    Yes the Promised Land, to the Promised Land

    Make a step down to Wasmara, then we stopped in Addis Ababa
    Made our way to Shshamane land, riding on the King’s highway

    To the Promised Land, going to the Promised Land, oh gosh
    To the Promised Land, whoa, to the Promised Land, weeell

    There’s plenty of land for you and I, By and By
    Lots of food to share for everyone, no time for segregation in the Promised Land, oh gosh

    Take me to the Promised Land,
    Said the Promised Land, whoa, yes the Promised Land, whooaaaahh,

    Said we’re, riding on the King’s highway,
    From a Cairo to Kenya
    Made a stop in Wasmara, then we made another one in Addis Ababa

    The Promised Land, going to the Promised Land, oh God
    Said the Promised Land, yeah the Promised Land, whoaa

    Then I said to myself, give a thanks for the Prophet, God
    For he gave me the teachings so I could see
    The reality of my true being and levity
    There’s a lot of work to be done, oh gosh, in the Promised Land

    Yeah, talking ’bout the Promised Land,
    Yes, to the Promised Land
    The Promised Land, going to the Promised Land
    Ohh, the Promised Land, whoa the Promised Land
    Said the Promised Land, whoaaa yeahh, whooaa

    Brother man, what are you doing for the Promised Land
    Gotta take your stand and let the Prophets live on, yeahh
    There’s work to be done, though you can’t run
    Got a job to be done, so you’ve got to do it,
    Even, a little by little,

    Yes the Promised Land, going to the Promised Land
    Said the Promised Land, going to the Promised Land

    Prophets of the old, said the west got to perish, whooaa
    Don’t let your hopes and aspirations drown before you, no way
    Gotta go, gotta go, got to go, I got to go, got to go

    To the Promised Land, oh gosh
    Yeah the Promised Land, whoooaaaaahhh!
