                                        A SIMPLE DAY IN AFRICA

                                            Blame the white
                                       For the books in school
                                             Blame the white
                                       For the traffic rules
                                             Blame the white
                                     For Round house now square
                                             Blame yourself
                                            for a land unfair

                                             White men left
                                    They have packed and gone
                                             White men left
                                    Now tribes on their own
                                             White men left
                                      Now its knives not guns

                                            Now the hate
                                   spreads with springtime sun
                                            tribal wars
                                        shake the dusty skies
                                            tribal hate
                                       glares in every eye
                                           baby schools
                                       gather tribe by tribe
                                            break the rules
                                          and you’re vilified
