Damon Albarn

"Mr. Tembo"

[Verse 1: Damon Albarn]
Injili, Injili, can I sing with you?
'Bout Mr. Tembo and what he's got to do
But first I'm going back to the Colworth Road
To find the mission and help him with his load

[Chorus 1: Damon Albarn]
Mr. Tembo is on his way up the hill
With only this song to tell you how he feels
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned

[Verse 2: Damon Albarn & Damon with Choir]
Injili, Injili, we will sing with you
Just like the TV in Mr. Tembo's room
Off the emphatic night, he checked in on his own
At Mkombozi Inn and made it his home

[Chorus 2: Damon Albarn]
Mr. Tembo is on his way up the hill
With only this song to tell you how he feels
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned

[Verse 3: Damon Albarn & Damon with Choir]
Injili, Injili, we will sing to you
'Bout Mr. Tembo and what he's going through
Gets up early while you are still in bed
Mr. Tembo, green blanket by his head

[Chorus 2: Damon Albarn]
Mr. Tembo is on his way up the hill
With only this song to tell you how he feels
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned

[Interlude: Damon Albarn & Lord Buckley]
Hey, you keep those lions off the front of the boat!
Good god, man! Have you some cotton in your ears?!
I'm trying to run this expedition in a decent manner!

Logistics, haulage, gulf, bungalow, spice, canals, cows, hay bales
Telegraph wires, pylon power
Farmhouse over chimneys still used
Stone, satellites, football pitches, faded flags and lots of dogs
Neon cross on top of a block of flats and a church, not as usual

[Chorus 2: Damon Albarn]
Mr. Tembo is on his way up the hill
With only this song to tell you how he feels
But to get there, he will need a helping hand
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
It's where he is now, but it wasn't what he planned
