mother africa

fingers round your breast
  mother africa
drums beat without rest
  mother africa
hungry skin on bone
  mother africa
rain has come and gone
  mother africa

dark the dusty smoke
  mother africa
hard and heavy yoke
  mother africa
will we ever play
  mother africa
rainbow's gone away
  mother africa

thorntrees shed their blood
  mother africa
tired earth is shot
  mother africa
lost your grasp in wind
  mother africa
breathless lies your child...
