Lyrics:
It's the first annual global,
Global carnival
It's the first annual global, global carnival
It's the first annual global,
Global carnival
It's the first annual global (Ah let's get down)
Global
Carnival
Global carnival
We go have a jamboree
The biggest one you'll ever see
We go revel in every nation
It's go be a celebration
Hear the music and feel the beat
On every corner, and every street
Close the Kremlin, the congress too.
It's a worldwide hullabaloo
At the first annual global,
Global carnival.
At the first annual global carnival (What ah say)
At the first annual global,
Global carnival
At the first annual global carnival.
(Ah let's have a party)
Global
Carnival
Global carnival
Israel and Palestine forming up a conga line
The Ayatollah and the Pope
Doing a limbo under a rope
Princess Di and the I.R.A.
Well, they jamming with a Rasta from Montego Bay
Forget the left , forget the right
Ah ah we go party tonight
At the first annual global,
Global carnival.
At the first annual global carnival (Ah hum)
At the first annual global,
Global carnival
At the first annual global carnival.
Global (ah, talk to me)
Carnival
Global carnival
Ah let's do it do it do it do it do it do it
Sikhs, Basques, Serbo-Croatian
Cambodians all join in the festivities
Hindu, Muslin, Jews, Christian
It doesn't matter what ever your proclivities
But let me make it very clear
Nobody goes hungry here
Margaret Thatcher parking cars
Fidel Castro passing out cigars
The C.I.A. and the K.G.B.
Tye swapping se
