Lyrics

Ooh. Why? Oh-oh mmh.

There is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a-running

I wake up in the morning
'll tell you what I see on my TV-screen
I see the plight of an innocent child
And everybody's watching

What did it say to make you so blind?
To your conscience and reason
Could it be love for your country?
Or for the gun you use in killing

So.
There is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a-running

Hey! Mr lover-man!
Can I get a chance to talk to you?
'Cause you are fooling with a dead man's corpse
And you don't know what you do

Oh...
So little Lucy's turned sixteen
And like the movie she's been seeing
She has a lover in her daddy
She can't tell nobody
'till she makes the evening news

For there is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a-running. Oh yes.

One day the river will overflow
And there'll be nowhere for us to go
And we will run, run,
Wishing we had put out fire...

Oh Lord!
For there is fire on the mountain - yeah, yeah
And there ain't nobody to fight it - yeah
Oh there is fire on the mountain
And no one is a-running

So yeah, yeah, yeah ...
There is fire in Africa
Fire everywhere, can't we see it?
And no one is a-running
(fade)
