Haiti, Haight, I got a new complaint

Well, I just got back an I wish I never leave now (where'd you go?)
Who dat martian arrival at the airport? (where'd you go?)
How many local dollars for a local anaesthetic? (where'd you go?)
The johnny on the corner was very sympathetic (where'd you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
An sitting here in my safe European Canadian home
I don't wanna go back there again

Wasn't I lucky n' wouldn't it be loverly? (where'd you go?)
Send us all cards, have a laying in on sunday (where'd you go?)
I was there for two weeks, so how come I never tell (where'd you go?)
That natty dread drinks at the Sheraton hotel? (where'd you go?)

I went to the place where every white face
Is an invitation to robbery
An sitting here in my safe European Canadian home
I don't wanna go back there again

Now they got the sun, an they got the palm trees
They got the weed, an they got the taxis
Whoa, the harder they come, n the home of ol bluebeat
Yes I'd stay an be a tourist but I can't take the gunplay

Safe European Canadian home
Your safe European Canadian home
Your safe European Canadian home
Your safe European Canadian home

Children in developing nations looooove having their picture taken and shown to them. Especially if, as is often the case, they've never had their picture taken before.
