"the refugee" lyrics
« on: 28 Feb 2005, 18:36 »

does anyone know what bono (U2) is saying after the second verse of "the refugee" (found on the cd war, 1983)?
thanks.

Wa, war she's the refugee.
I see your face, I see you staring back at me.
Wa, war she is the refugee.
Her mama say one day she's gonna live in America.

In the morning she is waiting
Waiting for the ship to sail, sail away.

[insert unknown lyrics here]

Wa, war her papa go to war.
He gonna fight but he don't know what for.
Wa, war her papa go to war.
Her mama say one day he's gonna come back from far away.

Oh help me
How can you help me?

In the evening
She is waiting
Waiting for her man to come
And take her by her hand
And take her to this promised land.

Wa, war she's a pretty face
But at the wrong time in the wrong place
Wa, war she's a pretty face
Her mama say one days she's gonna live in America.
Yeah, America.

Wa, war she is a refugee.
She coming back, she come and keep you company.
Wa, war she is a refugee.
Her mama say one day she's gonna live in America.

"I said ya donut
Half
To liver like a ref-you-jay

(You don't have to live like a ref-u-gee)"


There ya go.

EDIT: I think I got the actual phonetics pretty close on the first try.

If you are looking to quote The Tom Petty it:

You don't have to live like a refugee.

Just out of curosity why are you asking here?

Wouldn't it be easier to look up the lyrics?

That way you r more likely to find the lyrics.
