    Song Year:

    By the rivers of Babylon,
    Where we sat down,
    And there we wept,
    When we remembered Zion.

    Causethe wicked carried us away [in] captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land..
    ‘Cause the wicked carried us away [in] captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land.

    Sing it out loud..
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    Sing a song of freedom sister,
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    Sing a song of freedom brother.
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    We gotta sing and shout it.
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    We gotta talk and shout it..
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    Shout the song of freedom now. (whoah-whoah)

    So let the words of our mouth,
    And the meditation of our heart,
    Be acceptable in Thy sight, over I.
    So let the words of our mouth,
    And the meditation of our heart,
    Be acceptable in Thy sight, over I.

    Sing it again..
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    We’ve got to sing it together..
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    We’ve got to shout it together..
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
    ah-ahh-ahh-ahh (whoah-whoah)

    (musical interlude)

    By the rivers of Babylon,
    Where we sat down,
    And there we wept,
    When we remembered Zion.

    Causethe wicked carried us away [in] captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land..
    ‘Cause the wicked carried us away [in] captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land.
