border palava…Berlin ana Mungo

„maladie fi cocoa, one day go humbug coffee“

Post war walls
World war I…Mungo
World war II…Berlin
daso border palava…Berlin ana Mungo,
kan-kan barrières…visible ana invisible,
Southern Cameroons ooh…ana Cameroun de l’est
West Germany ooh…ana Allemagne de l’est
dem nak Allemagne fi grond one time…Mungo border komout,

„Tiko drink, Kumba drunk“

amen-amen-amen
In the name of almighty border
amen-amen-amen
