Who gives you the right to come here and tell me
I have to leave this place my home?
With you it's a jungle, to me it's a kingdom
Where people are free there to roam
Born with the stars we are happy and peaceful
'Til now we were left undisturbed
But you rupture the forests, our gardens
And fill them with filth from your cities unheard

Savage, who is savage?
Leave your morals, stake your claim
Savage, you are savage
Modern man can take the blame

You poisoned my tribe with civilized progress
Baptizing our blood with disease
You christened our bodies with sadness and suffering
Saying then that, "Your God is well pleased"
What have we done to deserve such injustice?
Explain to us please if you can
But you can't, but you can't, we can see it in your eyes
Of us both who's the primitive man

Savage, who is savage?
Leave your morals, stake your claim
Savage, you are savage
Modern man can take the blame

You poisoned my tribe with civilized progress
Baptizing our blood with disease
You christened our bodies with sadness and suffering
Saying then that, "Your God is well pleased"
What have we done to deserve such injustice?
Explain to us please if you can
But you can't, but you can't, we can see it in your eyes
Of us both who's the primitive man

Savage, savage
Savage, savage
Who's the savage?
Modern man
Who's the savage?
Modern man
