the history of the world lyrics – gang of four

when i was in my mother’s womb
social structure seemed a simple thing
after birth i cursed my luck
then went down to breakfast

what i know fills me up
it is an everlasting cup
what i believe will never change
my consolation for the night

mother had for me an egg
i understood the relations of production
she always provided for me
that’s where i lost my naivet? br>
stability is in my mind
i *ssociate with my kind
charity, it fills my heart
to help the poor in africa

good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world
good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world
good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world

good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world
good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world
good, yes, you’ve done well
here is a small prize
the history of the world
