lyrics

I have a dream today
That the innocent child will be bank manager
Do not keep quiet
Do not keep silent
Break the silences
(Break the silences)

I was born dirty
Picked up by a stroller
It is not my desire to eat food from the bin
It is not my desire to sleep on the pavements or the verander
Why you abuse me?
But you are my parents
The dustbin is my kitchen unit

I have my rights as an African Child
Everyone is not saying I'm wild
I'm the African Child

Through a chain reaction, an Englishman living in Argentina, without having met Genius, composed music for the words and recorded them across the planet with Alex James. We have created this page to try to support Genius in whatever way we can. He is now in school loving Sciences!!
