      About "Christmas In Capetown"

      Lyrics for Randy Newman - "Christmas In Capetown"

      Every night
      In Jungletown
      All the boogies in the street
      Radios turned up very loud
      Playin' Dancing Queen
      They love our music

      This English girl from the North somewhere
      Is stayin' with me at my place
      Drinkin' up all my beer
      Talkin' about the poor niggers all the time
      It's a real disgrace, she says
      I tell her, Darling, don't talk about things
      You don't understand
      I tell her, Darling, don't talk about something
      You don't know anything about
      I tell her, Darling, if you don't like it here
      Go back to your own miserable country

      It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same
      Oh, the boys on the beach are still blowin'
      And the summer wind still kicks the clouds around

      You know my little brother, babe
      Well, he works out at the diamond mine
      I drove him out there at five this mornin'
      The niggers were waitin' in a big long line
      You know those big old lunch pails they carry, man
      With a picture of Star Wars painted on the side
      They were starin' at us real hard with
      Their big ugly yellow eyes
      You could feel it
      You could feel it

      It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same
      The stores are open all the time
      And little kids on skateboards cut in and out of the crowd
      And the Christmas lights still shine
      Myself, I don't like to drink the way
      I used to, man, you know
      It don't seem to get me high
      And the beer don't taste the way it
      Ought to taste somehow
      And I don't know why

      Don't talk to me about the planes
      Man, I've heard it
      Just take a look around
      What are we gonna do, blow up
      The whole damn country?

      It's Christmas in Cape Town
      It's Christmas in Cape Town
      It's Christmas in Cape Town
