You are the beautiful beauty,
Full of rare and beautiful treasures. Your wealth is bounty,
To many you shower your wonderful pleasures.
Situated between three a
Kenya,Uganda and Tanzania your suitors.
Oh Victoria,beautiful bouncing Victoria, Our gem,solace and livelihood.
To widows you are an income,
A source of proteins to orphaned children.
Your fresh water is abundantly welcome,
As you turn deserts to small haven,
Lake victoria,our God given home,
A garden like the biblical Aden.
Oh victoria,beautiful bouncing victoria, Our gem,solace and livelihood.
Steamships sail your waters,
Kisumu,Mwanza and Entebbe you connect.
You join these municipalities,
And strong relationship you cement. To many you bring abounding happiness,
And peaceful peace you create.
Oh victoria,beautiful bouncing victoria, Our gem solace and livelihood.
The way a thief comes at night,
In came the marouding weed.
Silently it grew in might ,
Eating the lake with greed.
We request your help in our plight,
To rid the lake off this weed.
Oh victoria,beautiful bouncing victoria,
Our gem solace and livelihood.
Pull together people of Africa,
Pull together to remove this weed. Pull together people of the world,
Pull together for a better victoria. Avoid dumping in the lake,
And unnecessary fishing methods. What God has put together no man should put asunder.
