Once upon a time
I made a lion roar
He was sleeping in the sunbeams
On the old zoo floor.
I had gone to see the park
Where my papa used to play
It's called villa borghese
And it's on the way

OH OH OH!
To east Africa

Down on grand Comoro Island
Where i grew past four
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
Here's a child who'll want the world
To go his way

OH OH OH!
In east Africa(2x) (Oh Silent!)

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' ohhhhh!

OH OH OH!
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
I'll just have to be a hero,
There's no other way!

OH OH OH!
Back to east Africa(2X)

Come with me i'm going back
Going back to east Africa
