This Heat – Makeshift Swahili lyrics
"Makeshift", she sings
In her native German
You try to understand what she's trying to say
She says, "You're only as good
As the words you understand"
And you, you don't understand a word

Tower of Babel
Swahili
It's all Greek to me
Bi-lingual
Double dutch
Gift of the gab
Gift of the gab

We give you firewater, you give us your land
"White man speak with forked tongue"
But it's too late now to start complaining
Too late

Monosyllabic
Hieroglyphic
Et cetera, et cetera
Tower of Babel
Swahili
It's all Greek to me
New lamps for old
New lamps for old

Rhubarb rhubarb, rhubarb rhubarb
Rhubarb rhubarb, rhubarb rhubarb
