Men From Nairobi
(a.k.a. "We're The Men From Nairobi")
Words & Music:
I don't know this song at all (and am vaguely discomfited by it), but have had several requests for it. Can someone please send along the chords & tune?
We're the men from Nairobi and our team's a good one.
We play the Watusi, they're seven feet tall.
The cannibals may eat us, but they'll never beat us.
'Cause we're from Nairobi, the best of them all.
Sooooo, Sing Along, Sing Along, Sing Along, Sing Along,
Oh, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwawah!
So, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwa, Umgahwawah!
They sent fifty men down from Kilimanjaro,
But they didn't have what it takes.
We took all the losers out into the jungle,
And left them tied up for the snakes. What a bite!
[alt: They sent seventeen soldiers fron Kilimanjaro,
But they didn't have what it takes, Bang! Bang!!
They sent missionaries from Lower Uganda,
But they all got eaten by snakes!!]
The men from 'round Kenya know our team's a good one.
We played them 'bout this time last year.
Their number one hero was disqualified when he
Fell on a Nairobi spear. What a shaft!
When we played the Pygmies from East Southern Congo
In spite of the odds they won.
They shot ninety baskets right over our defense
By using a ten-foot blowgun
When we played Zimbabwe, in the second quarter
Tarzan swung in looking grim.
He misjudged his distance and bounced off the backboard
And landed hung up on the rim.
