Lyrics

When I raise my hands in prayer
Is Bono’s face always there?
When I stare into his wrap around eyes
Is my goodness globalized?

Can I shop enough for Africa?
Can I shop enough for Africa?
Can I shop enough for Africa?

When our voices want to rise
Do we have to advertise?
If I’m not in the upper class
Can I ever save your ass?

Can I shop enough for Africa?
Can I shop enough for Africa?
Can I shop enough for Africa?

Here’s an orphan. Here’s the gold.
Let’s adopt it.  Now its sold.
We send a jet. It’s on the news.
Express that kid. Cuz I’ve got the blues.

Can I shop enough for Africa?
