Po me mon fr re blanc
Poème à mon frère blanc

Cher frère blanc,Quand je suis né, j’étais noir,Quand j’ai grandi, j’étais noir,Quand je suis au soleil, je suis noir,Quand je suis malade, je suis noir,Quand je mourrai, je serai noir.

Tandis que toi, homme blanc,Quand tu es né, tu étais rose,Quand tu as grandi, tu étais blanc,Quand tu vas au soleil, tu es rouge,Quand tu as froid, tu es bleu,Quand tu as peur, tu es vert,Quand tu es malade, tu es jaune,Quand tu mourras, tu seras gris.

Alors, de nous deux,Qui est l’homme de couleur ?

-Léopold Sédar SENGHOR

Refrain :

Fibres de mon cœur vert.

Épaule contre épaule, mes plus que frères,

O Sénégalais, debout !

Unissons la mer et les sources,

unissons la steppe et la forêt !

Salut Afrique mère, salut Afrique mère.

Anthem- instrumental

La marseillaise l hymne national de france 1792
La Marseillaise- l’hymne national de France (1792)

Allons enfants de la patrie,

Le jour de gloire est arrivé

Contre nous de la tyrannie

L'étendard sanglant est levé

Entendez vous dans les campagnes,

Mugir ces féroces soldats?

Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras

Egorger nos fils, nos compagnes!


Aux armes, citoyens!


Marchons! Marchons!

Qu'un sang impur
