Yaa Asantewaa — Ashanti

Yaa Asantewaa — Ashanti Warrior Queen

Yaa Asantewaa —

Ashanti Warrior Queen

If you the men won’t go forward

Yes, we the women will

I will call my fellow women

And we will wear the pants

And we will wield the guns

Is the bravery of Ashanti no more?

Foreigners have seized our King

They want our golden stool

They want our land and gold

But men just sit and gaze

Yaa Asantewaa went to war

Followed by many men

To bring back King Prempeh

And save the golden stool

She fought them in the bush

She fought them in the plains

She fought along the pathway

And fought them at the fort

Yaa Asantewaa went to war

For King and golden stool

Is the bravery of Ashanti no more?

She roused the men from sleep

Viva Yaa Asantewaa
