lyrics

I've walked across strong currents in my life
I felt the rocks steady under my feet

We've walked across strong currents in our lives
We felt the pull, all the same, moving us on.

Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o

All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o

Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o

We will become strong currents in this life
Water shaping stones and shaping minds, moving us on.

Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
Hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o

All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
All my relations all around hey ya, hey ya hey ya hey o
