    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!
