We are sitting in the moonlight
On the sunburned velvet sand
Thunder in the distance
From the drumming in Sudan
We hear footsteps moving closer
Out of sight but very near
And we hold our breaths defenseless
Hoping lions don't appear

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide

Three warriors bold in all their glory
Bodies black on starry sky
Tall and strong as timber
Stand before us in the night
As their spears cut into heaven
And the wind blows soft and low
One brave warrior in the moonlight
Waves his hand and says

Hello oh hello Hello Jambo hello hi
Hello oh hello Raise your hand up to the sky
Hello oh hello Not so different you and I
Hello oh hello Hello Jambo hello hi

In the jungles of a city
They are with me in the dark
Running wild where we have seen
We have no worlds apart
Being well aware of danger
I am tickled pink to know
There are places perfect strangers
Raise their hands and say

Hello oh hello Hello Jambo hello hi
Hello oh hello Raise your hand up to the sky
Hello oh hello Not so different you and I
Hello oh hello Hello Jambo hello hi
