Way over in Ethiopia, when my little brother wake
He have no food to eat, no clothes to wear, no place to go
What can his mother say, what can his father do?
What can his mother say, what can his father do?

Take a look at Africa, take a look in a Africa
(Ooh what a struggle)
Sufferation, starvation, come in liberation
What can his mother say, what can his father do?
What can his mother say, what can his father do?

Take a look in a Africa, take a look in a Africa
Take a look in a Africa

Take a look in South Africa, yes America talk to Mandela
Come in England, come in England
Say what you can, what you can, say what you can, what you done
To Nelson Mandela, to Nelson Mandela

Take a look in a Africa, take a look in a Africa
Way over in Ethiopia
(Take a look in a Africa, take a look in a Africa)
When my little brother wake
He have no food to eat, he have no clothes to wear
He have no place to go
What can his mother say? What can his father do?
What can his mother say? What can his father do?

Take a look in a Africa, take a look in a Africa
Take a look in a Africa
