We are global citizens, citizens of the world!
We can be anywhere, anytime
Today, we’re in Nigeria, because we’re nice and we gel easily
In London tomorrow, not because we’re are long dons
In Jamaica because we’re gems in make up
Haiti because we hate negative isms
Togo because we love to go where we please
Don’t forget Uganda the land of united guardians.
Trust me we are third culture kids,
Parents of tomorrow’s wonder kids
We venture into a pasture of adventure with no puncture
No fracture in our overture
I tell you what
Refusal, rebuttal and approval are not accidental
So when a second culture generation
Has us used, accused, abused and refused
We’re not bemused like a recluse confused:
We are the third culture kids
We’re whole and mow on the go, going home
Home is no joke, I tell ya
Welcome to the contest, a test of your zest in a tempest
You’ve got to be a lion like an iron in Zion,
Not an iron like a lion in Zion
If Zion’s lion were an iron
Then we’re in an iron age
But then, don’t be confused though
If the iron in Zion is a lion, then
What makes our lion like an iron in Zion any different from
B Marley’s iron which is like a lion in Zion
When he sang “Iron like a lion in Zion”?
But trust me: we question everything
‘Cos we are the third culture kids!
