​Durban Poison

This song is by Graham Parker and appears…


The Zulus are rising from their shanty towns
The Injuns are launching a counter attack
The funeral pyre's burning as I strike a match
And everything goes up in smoke again, oh

Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison

A white man is talking in a twisted accent
Somewhere between British and Boer
Says if you hate somebody lock them up, but I can't be sure
If I'm just dreaming, I'm dreaming of

Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison

A choir is singing their voices ring out
A child is bouncing on her mother's knee
The cradle of mankind is waking at last
Seeds grow where nothing ever grew before,

Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison

Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison

Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
Durban Poison, oh oh oh oh, Durban Poison
