    Hello wonderful family of the Hive open mic, I hope y'all are doing good and I pray for the best for you...... Thankfully I'm more punctual this week

    The week's theme is one about values that holds a lot of sentiment, a big shout out to @esteliopadilla for choosing it...... Even in our mordern world slavery of different kinds and unethical deeds are still rampant. Take for example the brutal killing of protesting citizens armed with only their country's flag at the orders of the so-called "democratically elected" government of the country. Corrupt old men who not only make empty promises but also buy votes with basic ammenities citizens shouldn't lack in the first place.

    The more popular version(s) of this song are from the 2010 World Cup but the original version is quite deep. I mixed it up in this cover, both the popular lyrics and otherwise and made it a bit personal i.e as regards my country. A special shoutout to @benii @primestacks1 @sparker005 @peaq @mayorkeys and otherof my compatriots...... I hope y'all like it

                            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

    Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
    But 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 struggling, fighting to eat
    And we wondering when we'll be free
    So we patiently wait for that fateful 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

    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 struggling, 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
    Oh, oh, oh

    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
    When I get older
    When I 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

    This is one of the versions of the song:
