Lyrics of

Third world man

	
Johnny's playroom
Is a bunker filled with sand
He's become a third world man

Smokey Sunday
He's been mobilized since dawn
Now he's crouching on the lawn
He's a third world man

Soon you'll throw down your disguise
We'll see behind those bright eyes
By and by
When the sidewalks are safe
For the little guy

I saw the fireworks
I believed that I was dreaming 
Till the neighbours came out screaming
He's a third world man

[chorus]

When he's crying out
I just sing that Ghana Rondo
E'lera del terzo mondo
He's a third world man

[chorus]
