Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend,
The ones who made you, the ones who brought you here
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Ooh yeah

So Johnny was a good man
Armed with the power of his homeland
And with his boots laced tight and a ticket in his hand,
Would never to return home again
So he lost what he knows, and what all is right
For a broken world, and a world of lies,
But the days were numbered, relationships suffered
He lost the faith of all those who mattered so

Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend,
The ones who gave you, the ones who brought you here
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Ooh yeah

So Jesse thought that she was all that,
Thought she was heading on the right track
Left her mates at the gate as she walked away
Never to look back again
So she lost what she knows and what all is right
For a brand new image, and a world of lies
But the days were numbered, relationships suffered
She lost the faith of all those who mattered so

Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend,
The ones who gave you, the ones who brought you here
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Ooh

Ooh yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend,
The ones who made you, the ones who brought you here
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Don't forget your family, yeah
Don't forget your roots my friend, yeah
Ooh yeah
