(lyrics) (chorus) Lumumba Remember Lumumba Lumumba, Lumumba Spoke for freedom. (verses) The Belgians pulled out The U.S. moved in They wanted a puppet Who wouldn't stand firm. (chorus) Katanga they took Belgium returned UN troops came Then changed their whole mission.

Lumumba lives! Lumumba lives! Lumumba lives! Lumumba lives!
