African children
Living in a concrete situation
African children
Down there down there in a concrete situation
It’s a ghetto in the sky
Wonder do they know where you’re coming from
Living in a concrete situation
African children
In a concrete situation
High rise concrete
Where you’re coming from
African children
I wonder do they know where you’re coming from
No back yard for their children to play
Their rent increases each and every other day
Living in a concrete situation
And when they work they smell
African children
Living in these tenements
The whole of the nation
Now that their environment so bad
African children
I wonder do they know where you’re coming from
I wonder do they know where you’re coming from
I wonder do they know where you’re coming from
Wonder do they know where you’re coming from
Lift out of action on the twenty-seventh floor
African children
And when they’re out of sight
You don’t even know your neighbour’s name
I wonder do they know where you’re coming from
African children
The neighbours’ complaining again

REPEAT
African children

African children
Sometimes wanting to party late into the night
African children
Precast stonewall concrete cubicals
Structural repairs are assessed yet not done
Down there yes in a concrete situation
African children
For assistance every day
Crying and applying to their council
All of the nation are living in these tenements
African children
Many African children
Now that their tribulation so sad
Living in a concrete situation
African children
And its a place where
