Hello
Yes this is the residence
Hello daddy
Huh?
Daddy
Who is this? Emma?
Please yes daddy is me it's your son
Oooh I haven't from you in many of a years
Yes daddy pls am calling you about America
Ah my son are you enjoying yourself?
No daddy their struggling
They strivling here daddy
I want to come back home to Ghana
I never should have left this place
America
Nothing is happening here
Didn't you meet Bill Clinton
Daddy they are all struggling
He even asked me for some of my coins
Oh dats sad
I wana come back home to Ghana
Oh at least I will have someone to clean

Sudan...Help america
Somalia...Help america
Mexico...Help america
Give them something to eat
Darfur...Help america
Mogadishu...Help america
Mexico city...Help america
They're starving on the streets

Bill just closed the gates
Everybody go home
Your micros gone soft
Open windows to no homes
Hi I'm the rep from Africa, I came in a hurry
My brothers from Ghana said to bring you some gari
Coz hilary hala kampala say yankee dey hala
Aloe Blacc wasn't joking when he begged me for a dollar
Country in debt, currency diminished
Surprise, eyes popping, Popeye without spinach
Get yourselves ready, to gallop on an ass
Gone are the days of 99 cents a gallon of gas
Times are hard
At Times Square with placards
Protestors don't even know why they are there
They've been suckered
My god you suck hard
Here take these food stamps, a gift from Dakar
Nothing can save you
No android apps or dirty slaps
Drink these soakings before you and your economy collapse

Sudan...Help america
Somalia...Help america
Mexico...Help america
Give them something to eat
Darfur...Help america
Mogadishu...Help america
Mexico city...Help america
They're starving on the streets

Steve has gone, no more jobs
You had corn, now only cobs
Wow, you had Mcdonald's hamburgers
Now you, Mac and Donald are just some beggars
Even welfare couldn't fare well
Obama stands at the stairwell
Bidding farewell
Back to Kenya to seek refuge in Somalia
In his full regalia
He's now eating talia
Sweep your White House before you mop mine
Instead of revolution you say you're occupying
Humpty Dumpty sitting on street walls
Waiting to make an omelette of anyone who falls
Alarm, everything will be ok
You had the baker then oven and the whole cake
Smile was fake, now you get toothache
Lost steak, stomach sounds like an earthquake

Sudan...Help america
Somalia...Help america
Mexico...Help america
Give them something to eat
Darfur...Help america
Mogadishu...Help america
Mexico city...Help america
They're starving on the streets
Sudan...Help america
Somalia...Help america
Mexico...Help america
Give them something to eat
Darfur...Help america
Mogadishu...Help america
Mexico city...Help america
They're starving on the streets

So daddy please are you gonna buy me the ticket to come back to Ghana?
Daddy please tell me something
I will see what I can do
I can't be here
This place is nothing
You have to come and do a work
America is nothing daddy do something for me
Work for me on the farm
Do a weedings
I will do anything daddy
I will carry the bankye on my head
You better do it
Obama has done nothing for us in America
You wanted to go and see Puff Daddy
Am sorry daddy I don't even wana see Lady Gaga
Nobody
Dey all need my last coins
I wana come
Oh this is a shame
America is nothing
So now I am sending my money to the West
That's the Western Union
Ok
Thank you daddy
Your daddy is the best
America is nothing
