Song lyrics
When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back oh oh

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
A violent prone, poor people zone
But it's my home, all I have known
Where I got grown, streets we would roam

Out of the darkness, I came the farthest
Among the hardest survival
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak
Accept no defeat, surrender, retreat

So we strugglin', fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we'll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful daY
It's not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back oh oh

So many wars, settling scores
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor
I heard them say "love is the way"
"Love is the answer" that's what they say

But look how they treat us, make us believers
We fight their battles, then they deceive us
Try to control us, they couldn't hold us
'Cause we just move forward like Buffalo soldiers

But we strugglin', fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we'll be free
So we patiently wait for that faithful day
It's not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
and then it goes back, and then it goes
And then it goes,

And everybody will be singing it
And you and I will be singing it
And we all will be singing it

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes

When I get older, I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back oh oh

When I get older,whenI get older,
I will be stronger,
just like a wavin' flag,
Just like a wavin' flag, just like a wavin' flag
Flag, flag, just like a wavin' flag

You have the lyrics all WRONG! original is different, other than that.... great prestige of taking the time to "try" to write the lyrics down on some random homepage, that is all bullshit if you think about it... since internet, yeah... hmm, anyways. Its the wrong lyrics.

peace

Um... These are the lyrics for the song called: Young Artists for Haiti - Wavin' Flag. But, I still love the Haiti one. It has all different kinds of artists like K'naan (duh), Nikki Yanofsky, Drake, Nelly Furtado and more. My favourites are Nikki Yanofsky and Pierre Lapointe. Love the French part!
