or
Aswad

Many African children,
Living in a concrete situation
African children
Are living in a concrete situation
African children
They don't know a where they're coming from
African children
Right here in a mean world guarded
African children

All of the nation are
Living in these tenements,
Crying and applying to their council
For assistance
Their tribulation it's so sad
Their environment it is so bad
High rise concrete
No back yard for their children to play

African children
Are living in a concrete situation
African children
Well, they don't know where you're coming a-from
African children
African children

All the people are living in these tenements
A precast stonewall concrete cubicles
Their rent increasing every other day
Structural repairs assessed and never done
Lift out of action on the twenty-seventh floor
And when they work don't you know it smell

African children
How many African children, they're right here in the carnival
How many African children, they must know where they're coming from
African children
African children
Living in a concrete situation
African children
They don't know where they're coming from
African children
Down there down there in a concrete
African children
They don't know where they're coming from
