Sofiane – Arafricain ft. Maitre Gims (English lyrics)

1st verse (Sofiane) :
My father told me to keep in touch
I love him and thanks to God, I know where I’m from
The sky is the earth, and in my veins for life
I would like to feel at home, in my country or in yours
A few ignorant people are arguing in the yard
The earth is the same, the skin tone isn’t connected
My people, just like yours, keeps disappointing, one after the other
Kalash Criminel is the only person that manages to set everyone straight
And next to me, what will they say ?
And on the other side of me, what will they say ?
I’m not an Arab, I’m not an African
I’m an Arab from Africa, an “Arafrican”
Fianso

Pre chorus (Maître Gims) :
When I started out in music
I found myself in countries
I identified, in the tribes
That didn’t necessarily have, the physical attributes
That I’ve known, since little
Don’t judge me on my looks
I’m from over there, and I’m from here
I won’t move, I’m seated

Chorus (Maître Gims) :
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated

2nd verse (Sofiane) :
I never lost sight of things, my friend
You’re making a mistake on who’s the real enemy, if you want my opinion
Everything changes, that’s life, mixing is the law
I’m not moving from here, I haven’t found the right shooting angle
I’m grabbing peace, I won’t wait for her to come around
I’m Bamako, The Rif, the 9assaman
I’m the old country’s son, the child of the “9-3”
The real “mstermourt”, the “mwana mboka”
And next to me, what will they say ?
And on the other side of me, what will they say ?
I’m not an Arab, I’m not an African
I’m an Arab from Africa, an “Arafrican”
Fianso

Pre chorus (Maître Gims) :
When I started out in music
I found myself in countries
I identified, in the tribes
That didn’t necessarily have, the physical attributes
That I’ve known, since little
Don’t judge me on my looks
I’m from over there, and I’m from here
I won’t move, I’m seated

Chorus (Maître Gims) :
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated

Bridge (Sofiane & Maitre Gims) :
Let me claim the land where I feel at home
I won’t move, I’m seated
Let me claim the land where I feel at home
I won’t move, I’m seated
Let me claim the land where I feel at home
I won’t move, I’m seated

Chorus (Maître Gims) :
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
Mama eeeeh eeeeh eeeeh eeeh
I won’t move, I’m seated
