Tonton macoute Lyrics

Tonton macoute by Al Stewart  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Tonton macoute Come on to Haiti, you don't need a treaty
Papa Doc will do you ok
Tonton in the sun – he's polishing his gun
You'd better just stay out of his way

If you turn a critical eye, he'll drill you through the middle and cry
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton Macoute

Idi Amin Dada slowly going gaga
Some say it's the yaya decay
Country's going broker – but Idi he's a joker
You'd better just stay out of his way

Anything you say that's not right, you're floating in the river at night
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton Macoute

Papa had the voodoo to bring you down and cool you
Idi learned the lesson OK
From Neo to Stalin, Froward to Mussolini
They've always had to have it their way

But you can't make political pie, with such hypocritical lie
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton
It's just Tonton Macoute
It's just Tonton Macoute
