Fire On The Mountain
Aṣa Lyrics


There is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a running

I wake up in the morning
Tell you what I see on my TV screen
I see the blood of an innocent child
And everybody's watching
Now, I'm looking out of my window
And what do I see?
I see an army of soldier man
Marching across the street, yeah

Hey, Mr. Soldier man
Tomorrow is the day you go to war
But you are fighting for another man's cause
And you don't even know him

Ooh, what did they say to make you so blind
To your conscience and reason?
Could it be love for your country
Or for the gun you use in killing?

So, there is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a running

Hey, Mr. Lover man
Can I get a chance to talk to you?
'Cause you are fooling with a dead man's corpse
And you don't know what you do

So you say you have a lover
And you love her like no other
So you buy her a diamond that someone has died on
Don't you think there's something wrong with this?

Tell me
Who's responsible for what we teach our children?
Is it the internet or the stars on television?
Why? Oh why? Why? Oh why? Oh

Oh, so little Lucy turns sixteen
And like the movie she's been seeing
She has a lover in her daddy
She can't tell nobody 'till she makes the evening news

For there is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a running, oh yes

One day the river will overflow
And there'll be nowhere for us to go
And we will run, run
Wishing we had put out the fire, oh no

For there is fire on the mountain, yeah, yeah
And there is nobody, nobody (nobody seems to be on the run)
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a running, so yeah, yeah, yeah

There is fire, fire in Africa, oh (there is fire on the mountain)
Fire everywhere in the sea, yeah (nobody seems to be on the run)
Fire on the mountain top
No one is a running

Fire, fire, fire, yeah (fire on the mountain)
Nobody is a running

Asa warned us here in Nigeria with this beautuiful song 5 years ago but still...... God please save Nigeria!

This is the beauty of originality! This song will be 14 years old This year and it's still relevant.
