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
