Warren Zevon - Bujumbura Lyrics




Who's the Tutsi?
Who's the Hutu?
Why'd you shoot Kabushemeye?
Wish you'd never left the rugo
Whatcha doing in Bujumbura?

Life is fragile, we are frail
Here today and gone tomorrow
We don't want to live in jail
Been to hell in Bujumbura

Sans Echecs and Sans Defaite
Killing in the streets
Why don't no one stop it?
Why don't no one speak?
Mr. Bhoutrous-Bhoutrous Ghali,
give us all some reassurance
Why don't all the nations rally
Bring the peace to Bujumbura

Sans Echecs and Sans Defaite
Killing in the streets
Why don't no one stop it?
Why don't no one speak?
Who's the Tutsi?
Who's the Hutu?
Why'd you shoot Kabushemeye?
Wish you'd never left the rugo
Whatcha doing in Bujumbura?
...in Bujumbura
Whatcha doing in Bujumbura?
