Review The Song (0)


Written by Warren Zevon c. 1987, Zevon Music BMI

Mzungu Arudi Ulaya Mwa Frika Apate Uhuru
(whites go back to Europe Freedom for Africa)

Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone

Down in Kenya where the Masai roam
And the grass grows tall on the veldt
In our old colonial home
We drank our bitters while the empire fell

Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone

One day the Mau Mau came
All we had was lost
In our old colonial home
Under the Southern Cross

Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone

Down in Kenya where the Masai roam
And the grass grows tall on the veldt
In our old colonial home
We drank our bitters while the empire fell

Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone

The Mau Mau came in '52
The sun went down and we drew the drapes
In our old colonial home
We hid behind the Mau Mau gates

Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
Leave my monkey alone
