Holy Moses I have been removed 
I have seen the spectre he has been here too
 Distant cousin from down the line
 Brand of people who ain't my kind
Holy Moses I have been removed 

Holy Moses I have been deceived 
Now the wind has changed direction and I'll have to leave 
Won't you please excuse my frankness but it's not my cup of tea
Holy Moses I have been deceived 

I'm going back to the border  Where my affairs, my affairs ain't abused 
I can't take any more bad water 
Been poisoned from my head down to my shoes 

Holy Moses I have been deceived 
Holy Moses let us live in peace 
Let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease
There's a man over there 
What's his colour I don't care
He's my brother let us live in peace 
He's my brother let us live in peace 
He's my brother let us live in peace
