"Back to Africa" as written by and Andrew Shernoff....
Oh, she runs through the jungle on a panther's back, now
Darker than a chocolate cake now
She wants to be a singer in America
I told her I could give her a break

Well I've been to England and I've been to Siam
and I love the girls wherever I go
But this one's love put a hole in my heart
Africa is always her home

I think that I love you
You're too free to care
religion will save you
civilization's here

I wanna go back to Africa (x4)
I wanna go
I wanna go, go back to Africa

I brought her to America to give her a life now
Of cocoa burgers every day now
She ran into some sisters that turned her right on
Her heritage got thrown away

Her clothes come from Ghana and she prays to the East
She doesn't take the white man's flack
I still drink my soda but I'm very confused
Sometimes I wish I were black

I never oppressed her for race or for sex
I just try to love her, 'cuz I heard she's the best
She's the best

I wanna go back to Africa (x4)
I wanna go
I wanna go, go back to Africa

I wanna go
I wanna go, go back to Africa
