My brother just graduated from College
But he doesn't want to stay in Ghana
He says that he has got money to make
And who am I to blame him
He sees the hustlers with their fat rides
He sees the imported luxuries inviting him to have
He says that he dreams of coming to Europe
He heard that America is paradise on earth Well
I would like to tell him the truth
But I am afraid that his heart would break

My sister teaches for a living
And she has been doing this 4 ages
She tells me that it doesn't pay that much
But she owns a house and a car
Her husband counts himself lucky
Because he has got a woman with her own money
My sister calls me every now and then
Asking me to bring her to Europe
Well I would like to tell her the truth
But I am afraid that her heart would break

My father would be 64 this year
An old man with gray hair
He has worked hard all his life
Never begged a pesewa from anybody
His friends respect him for his sincerity
His pastor adores him
Because his tithes and offerings never come in coins
He tells me that America over flows with milk and honey
Well I would like to tell him the truth
But I am afraid that his heart would break


My mother worries herself sick about me
But I tell her not 2
I tell her that I am happy
Even though when I am not
I tell her that everything is fine
When I know is a lie
Living in a strange country makes you feel strange
Especially when you are a stranger
Well I would like to tell her the truth
But I am afraid that her heart would break
