A Commercial Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Have we got a telethon for you coming soon on MTV!
A rockin' bankroll extravaganza
Featuring all your favorite vigilante rock stars!
Sammy Hagar, Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood
This telethon is so important
We've even exhumed the bodies of Lynyrd Skynyrd

This ain't no sissy concert to raise food for the needy
This concerts whipped up the American way
To raise money for guns for the greedy
So stay tuned and dig in those heels for USA for South Africa

It's USA for South Africa
'Cause those poor, sex-starved apartheid riot battalions
Need more machine guns, more tear gas
More nerve gas and more electric fences
For those prison camps they call, "Homelands"

And who's going to give it to them?
We are! Every one of us! Every time we go to the bank
Every time we buy food at Theftway
Or those fancy chrome wheels for your hot car
It's USA for South Africa!

Don't delay! Apartheid is a big business!
What would these American ladies do without those diamonds?
You heard the White House, don't miss it!

Have you're rich parents' money ready
World hunger's gone forever once your check's in the mail
When MTV and the rock and racism connection
Bring you live from Sun City, USA for South Africa

Songwriters
Boucher, Eric Reed / Pepperelle, Raymond John / Lyall, Geoffrey / Henley, Darren
