Oh Little Child

© Edward Scott
oh little child in Africa
do you know its Christmas time
soon the star of Bethlehem will shine

oh little child in Africa
I hope you're feeling fine
if you do not have a present, please, have mine

oh little child in Africa
I hope your heart is free
if you want to love someone, love me

and as my daddy drinks his beer
and my mummy drinks her wine
and dear old Santa's ate the last mince pie,
you have so little, I have so much,
it makes me wonder, why?
