You say that I put chains on you
But I dont think thats really true
But if you want to be free from me
You gotta lose me in another world

Send me to the congo Im free to leave
Theres always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

Like a soldier ant
I will wait for the signal to act
To take a walk right through the door
If you dont want me here any more

Send me to the congo Im free to leave
Theres always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

Into my heart you came
And gave a whole new meaning to my life
Into my world you brought a light
I thought it never would go out

Send me to the congo Im free to leave
Theres always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the congo you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

You can send me to the congo Im free to leave
Theres always somewhere anybody can lead
Yes you can send me to the congo, you have to believe
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please

I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
But someday you may understand, someday you will see
That someone who would die for you is all Ive ever been

Congo the congo, if thats how its got to be
Congo the congo, if thats what you want from me

I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
Someday you may understand someday you will see...
