"The Refugee"

War, war
She's the refugee
I see your face
I see you staring back at me
War, war
She's the refugee
Her mama say one day she's gonna live in America

In the morning, she is waiting
Waiting for the ship to sail, sail away

War, war
Her papa go to war
He gonna fight
But he just don't know what for
War, war
Her papa go to war
Her mama say one day he's gonna come back from far away

Help me
How can you help me

In the evening she is waiting
Waiting for her man to come
And take her by her hand
And take her to this promised land

War, war
She's a pretty face
Born at the wrong time in the wrong place
War, war
She's a pretty face
Her mama say one days she's gonna live in America
Yeah, America

War, war
She's a refugee
She's coming man, she's come to keep you company
War, war
She's a refugee
Her mama say one day she's gonna live in America
