Lucky Dube - Choose Your Friends Lyrics




Danny got of yellow school bus
Looking so sad today, you see it on his face
Mommy and Daddy have been fighting again
Every time they fight, he's caught in the middle of it all
He has dreams, like every little boy in the world.
But right now his main dream,
Is to get out of here.
Is to see Mommy and Daddy disappear forever.
He doesn't wanna hear those angry voices anymore
Danny, be careful what you wish for
You might just get it.
Be careful O! Oh! Oh!

[Chorus:]
You can choose your friend, but you cannot
Choose, who you related to.

He goes up to his room, he's not feeling good today
But it's no use, telling, nobody listens here
No use complaining, nobody cares around here
Little boys go to sleep and pray
For toys and candy, he prays for one thing
God I need a miracle down here
Will you make, Mommy and Daddy?
Disappear forever
Danny, be careful what you wish for
You might just, get it.
Be careful Oh! Oh! Oh!

[Chorus:]
You can choose your friend, but you cannot
Choose, who you related to.
