The Avalanches - Wherever You Go lyrics

ft. CLYPSO, Jamie xx & Neneh Cherry

[Spoken Word: Kurt Waldheim]
We step out of our solar system into the universe
Seeking only peace and friendship
To teach if we are called upon
To be taught if we are fortunate
We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants–

[Spoken Word: Robert B. Edmonds]
I should like to extend the greetings
Of the government and people
To the extra-terrestrial inhabitants

[Spoken Word: [?] & Jimmy Osmond]
(Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too)
Yes, Maureen has circled him

[Spoken Word: Nick Sagan & Jimmy Osmond]
(Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with you)
Hello from the children of planet Earth

[Spoken Word: Debby Grossvogel & Jimmy Osmond]
(Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too)
Tanti auguri e saluti

[Spoken Word: Fred Dube & Jimmy Osmond]
(Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with you)
Siya nibingelela ma–

[Refrain: Jimmy Osmond]
Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too
Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with you
Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too
Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with you
Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too
Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with–

[Chorus: CLYPSO & Jimmy Osmond]
We go, we go wherever you may go
We go, we go wherever you may go
(Wherever you go)
We go, we go wherever you may go
We go, we go wherever you may go
(We'll save your soul
We'll save your soul)

[Sample: Sergio Mendes & Jimmy Osmond]
Vem Magalenha rojão (We'll save your soul)
Traz a lenha pro fogão
Traz a lenha pro fogão
Vem fazer armação
Vem Magalenha rojão
Traz a lenha pro fogão
Vem fazer armação

[Chorus: CLYPSO]
We go, we go
We go, we go wherever you may go

[Verse 1: Neneh Cherry & Jimmy Osmond]
Wherever you go (Wherever you go)
You go, we are with you
Wherever you go (Wherever you go)
You go, we go, too

[Sample: Sergio Mendes]

[Chorus: CLYPSO & Jimmy Osmond]
We go, we go
We go, we go wherever you may go
(Wherever you go)

[Verse 2: Neneh Cherry]
So much time and so much conflict
So much stress and so much fighting
So much hate and so much change
Too much war is all so frightening
On the radio, we can love
(On the radio, we can love)

[Refrain: Jimmy Osmond & Neneh Cherry]
Hugo, we go, too
Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with you
(Wherever you go)
Wherever you go, Hugo, we go too
(You go, we're with you)
Wherever you go, Hugo, we're with–

[Chorus: CLYPSO, Neneh Cherry & Jimmy Osmond]
We go, we go (Wherever you go)
Wherever you may go
We go, we go wherever you may go
(We'll save your–
We'll save your–)

[Sample: Sergio Mendes, Neneh Cherry & CLYPSO]
Vem fazer armação
Vem fazer armação
(You go, we're with you)

(We go)

(We go)

[Verse 3: CLYPSO]
We, we-we-we-we
Don't want to fall
Or build the wall
Under the fall
Like clouds of rain
We chase the rain
Don't fly away
We'll make our way

[Verse 4: Neneh Cherry]
Words of love, too constipated
Everyone's so agitated
Thoughts of violence, celebrated
Media hype, calibrated
All the proof, fabricated
Politicians, calculated
In the towers, insulated
Drug consumption, regulated
They got the power, pay by the hour
Make the folks cower, they can devour
Hit you with the bass, right in the place
Smack in the face that you can embrace
One, two, three, four, open up those doors
On the dance floor, that's where you get yours

[Outro: Neneh Cherry]
The whole damn world's incinerated
