ABBA – What About Livingstone lyrics

Went to buy me a paper at the local news-stand

And then I heard them laugh and say

Look, they’re gonna go flying way up to the moon now

Hey, what’s it good for anyway?

So I said

Fellas, like to ask you a thing if I may

What about livingstone?

What about all those men?

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasn’t it worth the while

Travelling up the nile

Putting themselves on test

Didn’t that help the rest?

Wasn’t it worth it then?

What about livingstone?

And all of those fellas at the local news-stand

Didn’t know what to answer or what to say

So I told them about him, that he was just like

One of those spacemen in his way

And if you laugh at them

Then there’s only a thing I can say

What about livingstone?

What about all those men?

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasn’t it worth the while

Travelling up the nile

Putting themselves on test

Didn’t that help the rest?

Wasn’t it worth it then?

What about livingstone?

(didn’t he do it, well didn’t he?)

What about all those men?

(didn’t he do it, well didn’t he?)

Who have sacrificed their lives to lead the way

Tell me, wasn’t it worth the while

(didn’t he do it, well didn’t he?)

Travelling up the nile

(didn’t he do it?)

Putting themselves on test

Didn’t that help the rest?

(didn’t that help them? Well, didn’t it?)

Wasn’t it worth it then?

What about livingstone?

(didn’t he do it, well didn’t he?)

What about all those men?

(didn’t he do it, well didn’t he?)
