Christmas In Cape Town (LP版) - Randy Newman

Every night

 

In Jungletown

All the boogies in the street

 

Radios turned up very loud

Playin' Dancing Queen

They love our music

 

This English girl from the North somewhere

 

Is stayin' with me at my place

 

Drinkin' up all my beer

Talkin' about the poor niggers all the time

 

It's a real disgrace she says

 

I tell her Darling don't talk about things

You don't understand

 

I tell her Darling don't talk about something

You don't know anything about

 

I tell her Darling if you don't like it here

Go back to your own miserable country

 

It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same

 

Oh the boys on the beach are still blowin'

 

And the summer wind still kicks the clouds around

 

You know my little brother babe

 

Well he works out at the diamond mine

 

I drove him out there at five this mornin'

 

The niggers were waitin' in a big long line

 

You know those big old lunch pails they carry man

 

With a picture of Star Wars painted on the side

 

They were starin' at us real hard with

Their big ugly yellow eyes

You could feel it

 

This time

You could feel it

 

It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same

 

The stores are open all the time

 

And little kids on skateboards cut in and out of the crowd

And the Christmas lights still shine

 

Myself I don't like to drink the way

I used to man you know

 

It don't seem to get me high

 

And the beer don't taste the way it

Ought to taste somehow

 

And I don't know why

 

Don't talk to me about the planes

Man I've heard it

 

Just take a look around

 

What are we gonna do blow up

The whole damn country

 

I don't know

 

It's Christmas in Cape Town

 

It's Christmas in Cape Town

 

It's Christmas in Cape Town
