I'm hearing only bad news from Radio Africa,
I'rn hearing only sad news from Radio Africa
They've still got trouble with a monster in the South
Heads buried deep in that lion's mouth
Like a jaw snapped shut, it keeps them apart
If that jaw got broke it would be a start.
The West still complains about the foreign aid
They'd do better to change the terms of trade.
More tanks than food in the Ogaden
It looks like Moscow got it wrong again.
Mozambique and Mugabe
Still got Frelimo I hear them say
But "Exchange" means...
It all means "Harder to take".
Tanzania should be moving up a gear
Instead they've got to step on the brake.
Can't stop a movement that's come this far
But "Lending" means."
"Harder to Fight"
Independence has a hidden expense
When the hands on the purse strings are white.
