Phil Collins

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 called villa borghese and it's on the way
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
In east africa, in east africa.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'
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!
Back to east africa
Back to east africa
Back to east africa
Come with me i'm going back, going back to east africa.
