Excuse me ma'am, wanna catch me a train to Ethiopia.
Some dreadlocked fella said it's the land of no coloured swine,
but those who are black, honest and fine.
Wanna catch me a train to Ethiopia,
Heard on its street Malcolm, Kwame and others ply,
their eyes falling on new leaders acting sly.
Wanna catch me a train to Ethiopia.
There, I shall rest my black bones among my own breed,
for from where I came, men are blinded by evil and greed.
