"Agbalagba," Angélique Kidjo's song inspired by SAY YOU'RE ONE OF THEM, is written in Yoruba. It is loosely translated as:

Children are the guardians of the future I beg them not to forget their roots
Whatever wealth and riches you will earn
Please celebrate the memory of your ancestors
Every morning is a new day
So many challenges that you will face
Wherever you will live, even far from your home
Never forget the land of your ancestors
