EMMA

Emmanuel Jal

This one goes to Emma Mc Cune
Angel to the rescue one afternoon
I'm here because you rescued me
I´m proud to part your legacy
Thank you. Bless you R – I – P
What would I be? Me
If Emma never rescued me? What would I be?
What would I be?
Another starving refugee
What would I be?
What would I be?
If Emma never rescued me?

Yeah, Yeah

You would have seen my face on the telly
fat hungry belly
flies in my eyes,
Head too big for my size
Just another little starving child
Running around in Africa, born to be wild
Praise God, praise the Almighty for
sending an angel to rescue me
I got a reason for being on this Earth
`Cause I know more than many what a life is worth
I better get a job and stand my ground
I´m going around mountains, leaps and bounds
I ain´t an angel, hope I´ll be one soon
And if I am, I wana be like Emma Mc Cune

Coro
What would I be?
If Emma never rescued me?
What would I be?
What would I be?
Another starving refugee
What would I be?
If Emma never rescued me?

I would have probably died from starvation
Or some other wretched disease
I would have grown up with no education
just another refugee
I stand here because someone cared
I stand here because someone dared
I know there is a lot of Emmas out there
who is waiting and trying to save a life of a child

Coro
What would I be? Me!
If Emma never rescued me?
What would I be?
Another starving refugee

I remember the time when I was small
When I couldn´t read or write at all
Now I'm all grown up, I got my education
The sky is the limit and the cup is runing over
How I prayed for this day to come
And I pray that the world find wisdom
To give the boy in need some assistence
Instead of putting up resistence,
Sitting and waiting for the politics to fix this
It ain´t gonna happen
They´re all sitting on they asses
Poping champagne and scrunching the masses
coming from a refugee boy-soldier
But I still got my dignity
I gotta say it again
If Emma never rescued me
I´d be a corpse on the African plain

Coro
What would I be?
If Emma never rescued me?
What would I be?
Another starving refugee
What would I be me?
If Emma and never rescued me?
Yeah, Yeah
