You say that I put chains on you
But I don't think that's really true
But if you want to be free from me
You gotta lose me in another world
 
Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you want to just do what you please
 
Like a soldier ant
I will wait for the signal to act
To take a walk right through the door
If you don't want me here any more
 
Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you want to just do what you please
 
Into my heart you came 
And gave a whole new meaning to my life
Into my world you brought a light 
I thought it never would go out
 
Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Send me to the Congo you have to believe
You can do it if you want to just do what you please
 
You can send me to the Congo I'm free to leave
There's always somewhere anybody can lead
Yes you can send me to the Congo, you have to believe
You can do it if you want to just do what you please
 
I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
But someday you may understand, someday you will see
That someone who would die for you is all I've ever been
 
Congo the Congo, if that's how it's got to be 
Congo the Congo, if that's what you want from me
 
I would never be the one to say you had no reason
To want me somewhere else far far away
Someday you may understand someday you will see...
