The Lyrics

A song about life in the Third World.
I'm an African tribesman
I live out on the savannah
I got a crazy chieftan, he loves Santana
Things are going great, and they can only get better
I'm doing all right, I've really got it made
The future looks bright, unless I get AIDS

I've got a job working for our dictator
Fifty thou a year for slaughtering my peers
Things are so great, they can only get better
I'm doing all right, really got it made
The future looks bright, unless I get AIDS

Well I've been blessed by the gods, I'm number one
I'm a real badass Hutu with a big machine gun
Things are going great, and they only get better
Doing all right, I've really got it made
The future looks bright, unless I get AIDS
Unless I get AIDS, unless I get AIDS
