Song Description

acoustic Afro-bertan song- we are all one family.

Story Behind the Song

DNA testing indicates that everyone alive on Earth today is descended from a group of about 6 people who lived together about 100000 years ago(give or take).

Lyrics

1. 100,000 years ago
we left our ancient valley home
searching for a new dream to believe

we traveled north and south and east
our faces changed but underneath
in every way we're still the sons of Eve

Chorus:
now here we are, the family of man
the daughters and sons of long lost friends
scattered round the world and back again
but still it's we, the family of man

2. 10,000 years ago we ran
across the northern bridge of land
and learned to live and love in ice and snow

we spread throughout the southern seas
we traveled when and where we pleased
always seeking harmony and home

Chorus:
3. And now it's only recently
we found at last our family tree
we all look back in time to just one clan

And part of every new child born
is everyone who's come before
our common link, the family of man

Chorus:
now here we are, the family of man
the daughters and sons of long lost friends
scattered round the world and back again
but still it's we, the family of man
we'll always be, the family of man
