If we want to prove agriculture
as the backbone of a nation
Then, we need to wake up from comatose,
Let’s rare and cultivate and The Gambia would ever be sucrose,
Is sad seeing people always praying for development
Yet very few of them are ready to farm,
If we need to stand firm
without depending on foreign farmlands
Then, we need to go back to our farmlands,
We are copycats busy copying the lives styles of the West
And we forgot to know how they are able to feed themselves till they are feeding us like poor little babies.
Nowadays, Without American rice we scramble
Whenever the prices are high we make troubles,
Oh Gambia, is time we grow what we eat
Before we crumble….
