Lyrics & music: john oates

My baby went to africa
With the dirty lens photographer
My baby stayin in jungle land
With a u s body and a real light tan
My baby went to africa
With a make-up man and his love-sick lover
She get a couple o grand and a two-piece suit
Let the folks back home see the native beauty
My baby went to africa
Gotta pack my bags and get to her
Before the lions and tigers try to jump on her bones
