This "EU-Liberia" song was recorded by all staff from the EU Delegation to Liberia during a teambuilding retreat on 7th February 2018 in Monrovia, Liberia. The song is performed (or rather an attempt to perform!) in "Hipco style", a unique rap style performed in Liberia. The lyrics were written by EU staff who worked in four teams to put the song together. The song was produced through a partnership with the local NGO Accountability Lab.

Here are the lyrics if you want to sing along:

When you think about Europe, what comes to your mind?

We think about diversity, war and peace.

Brussels, the HQ of the EU.

Non-discrimination in European communities.

Freedom of movement which leads to economic empowerment .

 

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!

 

We talked about justice,

We talked about trade,

We talked about bureaucracy,

Freedom, human rights, democracy.

 

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!

 

Together we are stronger, no war, just peace!

 

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!

Europe!! A place to be; a place to be; a place to be!
