Kamakawiwo'ole, Israel - Living In A Sovereign Land Lyrics

There's a celebration on the palace grounds
People need To know, what's going down
There's a proclamation from the powers that lead
Our island nation has got to be free!
Living in a sovereign land
Living in a sovereign land

Island people come together as one
For future generations under the sun
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of love
Living in a sovereign land
Living in a sovereign land

Our children deserve To know
What went down a hundred years ago
You can pay the man, you can take the land
But you can't take the truth away!
E Ola, living in a sovereign land
E Ola, living in a sovereign land

[Repeat Bridge/Instrumental]

E Ola, living in a sovereign land
E Ola, living in a sovereign land

Bruddahz an tetaz, brown, yellow and white
time to do what you know Is right
Whats been taken must be returned
Give our children what they deserve
E Ola, living In a sovereign land
E Ola, living In a sovereign land

    Hawaii really needs to be free and not just a star on some other country's flag!  They don't need to be controlled by anther country thousands of miles away. I have never been there but from all I have seen, the native population needs to be free!

    Louis Rascon

    It called conquest.

    Kingdom of Hawai'i Ball

    And soon it will be called liberation.

    Punaboy 12

    HELL YEAH! THe US's Federal Dept. of Interior made it official last year. The Kingdom has legal jurisdiction in Kalapana.
    All I can think of is future access to free energy and greenhouse growing. ~レイ (not ナキ)

  22. roy alfred seaberg

    Yea you're right I think Dog is from colorado then moved to hawaii. Did you know that puerto rico might become a state(big maybe) and their people actually want it. I don't know your spiritual beliefs but check out godsplanforall(.com) if you want the real message on christianity.

  23. Bird Papi

    dog isnt hawaiian hes just another white guy in paradise.

  24. roy alfred seaberg

    hawaii was strong armed into the US late 1800's but do today's hawaiians really care. I am not trying to be rude. I am just wondering. I don't know much about hawaiians in fact the only two I know about are dog the bounty hunter and bruddah IZ. Do hawaiians even consider themselves americans.


    Essa música traz alegria aos ouvidos!
