"Makeshift Swahili" as written by Charles Hayward, Gareth Williams and Charles Bullen....
makeshift she sings in her native german,
you try to understand what she's trying to say
she says "your only as good
as the word you understand"
and you, you don't understand a word

tower of babel, swahili, it's all greek to me
bi-lingual, double dutch, gift of the gab

we give you firewater you give us your land,
"white man speak with forked tongue",
but it's too late now to start complaining,
too late

monosyllabic, hieroglyphic, etcetera, etcetera

new lamps for old

rhubarb rhubarb rhubarb
rhubarb rhubarb rhubarb
