Lorenzo - Demo

Once upon a time I made a lion roar
He was sleeping in the sunbeams on the old zoo floor
I'd gone to see the park where my papa used to play
And It's called, called Villa Borghese, and it's on the way

Oh-oh-oh, to East Africa

Down on Grand Comoro Island, where I grew past four
Well, I could swim and fish and snorkel on the ocean floor
And the wind laughed, and the wind laughed through the trees as if to say
Here's a child who'll want the world to go his way

Oh-oh-oh, in East Africa
I said, oh-oh-oh, in East Africa
Sing it

Suddenly for me the world turned upside down
Far from my friends the lions and the dolphins came this awful sound
Dark shadows, sounds of thunder raging over me
Came this monster called 'Adrenoleukodystrophy' oh no

Oh-oh-oh, where's my East Africa?

Well they said, they said, they said the ones who know it all
They said from now on for you there will be no more standing tall
But I took my parent's hands, I lifted my head to say
Well, I just have to be a hero, there ain't no other way, no other way

Oh-oh-oh, back to East Africa
Oh-oh-oh, back to East Africa
Oh-oh-oh, East Africa
East Africa
I'm going to East Africa
I'm going back to East Africa
East Africa

I'm in the Yambo
Ooh, calling me
Going back to East Africa
