Where to Send the Money
Mister Mugabe in Zimbabwe wants lots of money soon,
Immediately after the G8 is finished on the 28th of June,
And don’t ask any questions about his Zurich bank accounts,
‘Cause only he knows the source of those vast secret amounts.
And the world watches in amazement while all Africa fights,
Thirty wars and thirty years of genocide with few human rights,
And we have to send billions ‘cause we have an obligation,
A desire to provide charity -- his salvation and our frustration.
Send those billions to Zimbabwe postmarked Mister Mugabe,
International socialist, member of the Commonwealth you see,
He knows where to put it and no questions please,
He’s just back from Rome and putting on the squeeze.
