sonnerie téléphone portable pour Ethiopia

Hot winds and hunger cries, ethiopia
Flies in your babies' eyes, ethiopia
Walking sticks on burning plains
Betrayed by politics, abandoned by the rains
On and on, the human need
On and on, the human greed profanes
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Your top soil flies away, ethiopia
We pump ours full of poison spray, ethiopia
Between the brown skies
And sprinkling lawns
I hear the whine of chain saws
Hacking rain forests down
Oh on and on, insanities
On and on, short sighted greed abounds
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Little garden planet, oasis in space

Some hearts hurt, they can hardly stand it
Famine phantoms at the garden gates
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Every sunday on tv, ethiopia
You suffer with such dignity, ethiopia
A tv star with a pr smile
Calls your baby "it"
While strolling through your tragic trials
Oh, on and on, stupidity
On and on, the basic needs are defiled
Good air, good water, good earth
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Little garden planet, oasis in space
Some hearts hurt, they can hardly stand the waste
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
Ethiopia, ethiopia, ethiopia
