Lyrics

Begging Bowl
 
Wouldn’t it be a surprise
If you was to wake up in the morning
And you were a five-year-old child
Livin’ in Darfur, Africa
And your clothes were old and worn out
From the many years of use
And, oh the constant companion
The one that never leaves you alone
 
(Nadadadanada)
(Chorus)
Just like an old time friend that refuses to go home
Just like an old time friend that refuses to go home
I speak of the horrible hunger
I speak of the terrible pain
I’m just a five-year-old child
Livin’ in Darfur, Africa (Africa hahaha, Africa, Africa)
 
Livin’ a country that’s torn by war
There’s violence everywhere
And even the animals go hungry
They look at you with disdain
 
Tonight when you go to sleep
And you huddle next to your mother
And you look up in the sky
And you cry out in anguish
 
(Nadadanana)
(Repeat Chorus)
 
I speak of the horrible hunger
(How can you do this to me)
I speak of the terrible pain
(Don’t you know that I am just a five-year-old child)
I’m just a five year old child
(Look at you, look at you)
Livin’ Darfur Africa
Africa, Africa, Africa, Africa
