Liberia’s Inauguration Day



By Berenice Mulubah and Kru Cherie


Gbana Pekins and big jues

Wheelbarrow boys and Market girls 

Brabees and zogos

Penpen boys and penpen girls 


Big boy one and big boy two

Mamie pepper and teacher pepper

Decembrians and been-tos 

Not forgetting Dr. Turn around


All the Maco(s) and Paco (s)

 That Cerees speaking girl and senate jues

Men have come and men have gone 

Our mothers have given birth to kings and queens 


Stand on Snapper Hill and sing it loud in Kolloque song

Let all the good things flow

Club beer, cane juice and palm wine too

From God to man

the palm wine can’t fini seh 


Tell Ma Hawa to bring the chew

The GB, Fufu and dumb boy too

Palmbutter, torbugee, 

Cassavaleaf can’t fini seh  


You see what God Nah do

Papa God has brought us through

From many years of heartaches and shame

Wiping our tears away


Over the years we lost our way

Spilling our own blood from pole to pole

Swimming in hurts and pain

For so many years things remained the same


Now the time has come 

To soak our feet in the sand of Sun Set beach

So sit right here and look up 

Do you see the Lone star shining down on you


A new day has come 

To spread your lappa and dance 

From broad street to Harper 

Make sure you stop to the grand mansion 


Bring out the kakaleka and puhkayteh dance 

Let the Gbema beat flow in our soul, while we sip on this hot soup

For we celebrate peace, love and unity

On this Inauguration Day
