about

This is a song I wrote after watching the wildly popular Joseph Kony video on YouTube. It really inspired me!

lyrics

Make Joseph Kony Famous © Rick Ivanoff 2012

In the jungles of Uganda there’s a man who thinks he’s right
And he comes and takes the children in the middle of the night
The girls are raped and tortured, and the boys are made to shoot
And he terrorizes people, so it’s time to start pursuit

The ICC has said its time, to bring him to account
The obstacles are great, but we won`t stop `till he is found
We have to spread the message, if we want to change the world
There’s nothing we can’t do, stop this madness, we will rule

Chorus:
Let’s make Joseph Kony famous, spread the word across the land
We will not rest, `till we execute our plan
We won’t accept excuses, We will not forgive these crimes
`Cause, there ain`t no stopping Freedom, This Peace Train`s on the line


2012 is here and we must rise above the fray
Tell the countries and their leaders, the time has come today
Let this be the year of change, let them know we care
So the children can go home again, to love and laugh and share

Tell your pals on Facebook, Tweet to all your friends
Rise up in our cities, Brothers, Sisters we defend
We will no longer tolerate, the gauntlet has been dropped
It’s time to take our future back, our movement can’t be stopped!

Let’s make Joseph Kony famous, spread the word across the land
We will not rest, `till we execute our plan
We won’t accept excuses, We will not forgive these crimes
There ain`t no stopping Freedom, This Peace Train`s on the line

Let’s make Joseph Kony famous, it’s the thing we have to do
Tell the your leaders and the Congress and the President, that we ain`t no fools
Spread the message ‘round the world, they can’t ignore the call
Let them know we’ve had enough, From the Congo to Nepal
Let them know we’ve had enough, From Uganda to Nepal
Let them know we’ve had enough, From Syria to Nepal!
