XTC lyrics - It's Nearly Africa

"It's Nearly Africa"

Chant your spirit free
Rush to greet truth like a dart
(Shake your bag o' bones)
(Shake your bag o' bones)
That's not traffic roar
That's a leopard in your heart
(Shake your bag o' bones)
(Shake your bag o' bones)

Go tell your stale friends
Go tell false prophets and drug traffickers

Not to try to push our bodies any faster
We're dancing with disaster
And the first will be the last
It's nearly Africa (oh)
It's nearly Africa (oh)
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now

Unplug future plans
Finger-paint the Sun on you
(Shake your bag o' bones)
(Shake your bag o' bones)
Mend your missing links
I think trust should be the glue
(Shake your bag o' bones)
(Shake your bag o' bones)

Go tell your warboys
Go tell all leeches and blind panickers

Not to try to push our bodies any faster
We're dancing with disaster
And the first will be the last
It's nearly Africa (oh)
It's nearly Africa (oh)
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now

(Our civilisation car is running wild, wild, wild, wild)
(Who did you give the wheel to?)
(The fat man driving us over the edge of the nearest cliff face)
(Is he the same God that I've seen you kneel to?)

Go tell your stale friends
Go tell false prophets and drug traffickers

Not to try to push our bodies any faster
We're dancing with disaster
And the first will be the last
It's nearly Africa (oh)
It's nearly Africa (oh)
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now

Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
Any day now (it's nearly Africa)
Any day now, now
