African Children, Pt. 2 - Lyrics

Many African children,
Living in a concrete situation
African children
Living in a concrete situation
African children
I wonder do they know where you're coming from
African children
Down there yes in a concrete situation
African children
I wonder do they know where you're coming from
The whole of the nation
Living in these tenements,
Crying and applying to their council
For assistance every day
Now that their tribulation so sad
Now that their environment so bad
High rise concrete
No back yard for their children to play
African children
I wonder do they know where you're coming from,
African children
In a concrete situation
African children
Wonder do they know where you're coming from
All of the nation are living in these tenements
Precast stonewall concrete cubicals
Their rent increases each and every other day
Structural repairs are assessed yet not done
Lift out of action on the twenty-seventh floor
And when they work they smell
African children
Living in a concrete situation
African children
I wonder do they know where you're coming from
African children
Living in a concrete situation
African children
I wonder do they know where you're coming from
African children
Down there down there in a concrete situation
African children
Wonder do they know where you're coming from
Where you're coming from
African children
REPEAT

Sometimes wanting to party late into the night
And when they're out of sight
The neighbours' complaining again
And its a place where
You don't even know your neighbour's name
It's a ghetto in the sky
