We took the Philly flight headin' Mali bound!



To celebrate our close of service we put together a song and dance routine to the beat of 'Don't stop believin'' by Journey.  Our tailor in San, Abu, made all our matching tops.  Enjoy!


Just a toubab girl, livin’ in a toh-filled world
She took the Philly flight headin’ Mali bound
He’s just a brusse-y boy, corn and beans are his first choice
He took the Philly flight headin’ Mali bound

I see you in the conference room,
The smell of cheese and drinks for two.
For a smile we can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on.

Strangers. 2 years.  Meeting at the campagnard
There’s toubabs. Yala-ing in the night
Whereabox.  Didn’t text.  Here comes Admin separation.
Eating. Zamé by moonlight.

Drinking tea to get my fill,
Flag is how I get my thrill
Payin’ anything to not eat rice just one more time.

Some will stay.  Some we’ll lose.
Some are born to be en brusse.
And the mem’ries never end,
Mali lives on and on and on and on.

Don’t stop believin’
Our bachée will be leavin’
COS.  Peace Corps  Oh-oh-ohhhh!

Don't Stop Believin'!
