What do you do with a B.A. in English? / What is my life going to be? / Four years of college, and plenty of knowledge / Have earned me this useless degree. / I can’t pay the bills yet / ‘Cause I have no skills yet / The world is a big scary place. / But somehow I can’t shake / The feeling I might make / A difference to the human race!
I am Africa / With the strength of the cheetah / My native voice will ring / We are Africa / We are the heartbeat of Africa / With the rhino / The meerkat / The noble lion king / We are Africa! / We are the winds of the Serengeti / We are the sweat of the jungle man / We are the tears of Nelson Mandela / We are the lost boys of the Sudan.
You can’t believe I’d do these deeds / A little man who’s scared and blind / Too lost to find the words he needs. / I never touched that child / God - I never raised my hand! / I stand before you now / Incredibly afraid / I pray you understand.
We starve look / At one another / Short of breath / Walking proudly in our winter coats / Wearing smells from laboratories / Facing a dying nation / Of moving paper fantasy / Listening for the new told lies / With supreme visions of lonely tunes
No one has ever loved me / As deeply as you / No one has truly loved me / As you have, Fosca. / Love without reason / Love without mercy / Love without pride or shame. / Love unconcerned / With being returned / No wisdom, no judgement / No caution, no blame. / No one has ever known me / As clearly as you.
