To All Our Nations, Why The Caged Bird Sings

To All Our Nations
Verse 1:
Every moment, I’m trying to find my way
The sky is the limit, I live for today
The world will be mine, everything can be ours
Just go with the wind and use mother nature’s powers,
just go with the wind and use mother nature’s powers.Chorus:
To our nations
ëłtth’í daghída
kwayask kapimâtisiyak
have pride in who we are
To our nations
ëłtth’í daghída
kwayask kapimâtisiyak
have pride in who we areVerse 2:
The beat of the drums will free all our fears
Remain beautiful and strong for blue skies are near
The world will be mine, everything can be ours
Just go with the wind and use mother nature’s powers,
just go with the wind and use mother nature’s powers

Chorus:
To our nations
ëłtth’í daghída
kwayask kapimâtisiyak
have pride in who we are.
To ALL our nations
ëłtth’í daghída
kwayask kapimâtisiyak
have pride in who we are

Outro:
I have pride in who we are
I have pride in who I am!
