Track Name: Tuko Pamoja
Conflicts aren’t like genes;
you don’t have to inherit.
If you don’t like it,
Don’t put it on, don’t wear it.
We only have one world,
so let's make it one world.
Synthesis as our impetus,
We’ll achieve peace

Let's sing "tuko pamoja"
All of the world has never been one.
Let's sing "tuko pamoja"
Lay down your claims, lay down your guns
