lyrics

OMAR JALLOW

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



Along the Gambia River
In the African domain
Of just unlucky people, having so much to gain.
There I saw an Omar Jallow,
Such a kind and clever guy.
Got hold of me in a chat
To share the problems on his life.

He besought me to send some money
For the needs of his family.
It was just a straight calling on my humanity.
He said: “We’re all here together
On this one and only earth.
I have a right to a much better life
And get a chance to prove my worth”.

Omar Jallow, you came into my heart
And I didn’t want to hear of it,
You might be a blackguard.
How I loved you to be real and true
And help you out of misery
I was concerned about you!



Oh, happily I’ve been timely waken
Out of my good thoughts.
And found myself just been taken in by a shameless fraud.
But now I really halt between two feelings deep inside
Could I ever meet and help an Omar,
Who is true and right.

Omar Jallow, you came into my heart
And I didn’t want to hear of it,
You might be a blackguard.
How I loved you to be real and true
And help you out of misery
I was concerned about you!
