​Letter From Zimbabwe

This song is by Australian Crawl and appears on the album Sons of Beaches (1982).

I got a letter from my old mate he's in Zimbabwe
True white Mzungu dodging all the rifles of Obote
He's in the desert but he don't mind
He crawl 'cross Africa with cockroach breath

I got a letter from my old mate
He's in Zimbabwe

A Mongo on the Congo
The drums the drums of independence
Rhodesia oh Zambesi
They fight they fight for their descendants
He's in the dance halls but he don't mind
He dance 'cross Africa with Amin death

I got a letter from my old mate
He's in Zimbabwe

He's in the dance halls but he don't mind
He dance 'cross Africa with Amin death

I got a letter from my old mate
He's in Zimbabwe

Mozambique to Madagascar
On the fishing boat going troppo
My old Nigeria -- white is right
Past the Limpopo
He's in the jungle but he don't mind
He race 'cross Africa like Livingstone

I got a letter from my old mate
He's in Zimbabwe
I hope it gets better for my old mate
He's in Zimbabweeeh
I got a letter
I got a letter
I got a letter
I got a letter
I got a letter
I got a letter
Zimbabwe
