The Lyrics

desert crop, can't grow no wheat
unicef takes its chances
dry and listless
walk around in bare feet
just a tribe and the will to survive

so many times, they ride in so fast
and swing machetes so gory
it's a real trip, but lives they won't last
there's a fight to keep self alive..

there's an eye on the Niger
it's the region of fright
it's the new U.N challenge
for survival
will there be some survivors
to then say what is right
the world's watching the region there's eyes
on the Niger

face to face, out in the heat
dry and tough, all are hungry
unhealthy bods,
no more camels to eat
what they kill there's no thrill, to survive

there's an eye on the Niger
it's the region of fright
it's the new U.N challenge
for survival
will there be some survivors
to then say what is right
the world's watching the region there's eyes
on the Niger

sun is up, man it gets hot,
desert dust is the story
walk some distance,
for the water they got
just a pill's what they need to survive

there's an eye on the Niger
it's the region of fright
it's the new U.N challenge
for survival
will there be some survivors
to then say what is right
the world's watching the region there's eyes
on the Niger


The eye on the Niger

Very nicely done, Malcolm, 5s all the way, tho' Funny-5 really is topical-aptness-5.

Well-written and profound; thanks for making us aware. It's not funny, of course, but it wasn't meant to be, so I give you some credit for profundity. 5-4-5.
