Afrikaner Barista

Here again, here again, here again, here again

Swept in with the rush of revenants
who need to get amphetamized
Some mistake you for Australian
You correct the ones you like

Here again, here again, here again, here again

The wit is closely calibrated
to summon out a blushing smile
I know exactly where you’re from but
I wanna be the one you like

African African

Here again, here again, here again, here again

Blood bloody subjugation
The history between us now
But origin’s not destination
You gotta move on somehow

Afrikaner barista

I wanna be the one you like…
