Once upon a time I made a lion roar
He was sleeping in the sunbeams on the old zoo floor
I'd gone to see the park where my papa used to play
And It's called, called Villa Borghese and it's on the way

Ohh, to East Africa

Down on Grand Comoro Island, where I grew past four
Well I could swim and fish and snorkel on the ocean floor
And the wind laughed, and the wind laughed through the trees as if to say
Well here's a child who'll want the world to go his way

Ohh, in East Africa
Ohh, in East Africa
Come sing it

Suddenly for me the world turned upside down
Far from my friends the lions and the dolphins came this awful sound
Dark shadows, sounds of thunder raging over me
Came this monster called 'A-dre-no-leu-ko-dys-tro-phy' oh no

Ohh, where's my East Africa?

Well they said, they said, they said the ones who know it all
They said from now on for you there will be no more standing tall
So I took my parents hands, I lifted my head to say
Well I just have to be a hero, there ain't no other way, no other way

Ohh, back to East Africa
Ohh, back to East Africa
Ohh, back to East Africa
Back to East Africa, East Africa

Come with me I'm going back
I'm going back to East Africa
I'm going back, I'm going back
Come on

Come with me I'm going back
Come with me I'm going back
Come with me I'm going back
Come with me I'm going back

I'm going back to East Africa
Come with me, I'm going back
Come with me, come with me
Come with me, come with me
East Africa
I'm going back to East Africa
