my lyricsbox
Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
Waiting for the manna coming from the west
Barren is her bosom, empty as her eyes
Death a certain harvest scattered from the skies

Skin and bones is creeping, doesn't know he's dead
Ancient eyes are peeping, from his infant head
Politicians argue sharpening their knives
Drawing up their bargains, trading baby lives

(Chorus)
Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
Waiting for the manna coming from the west

Hear the bells are ringing, Christmas on it's way
Hear the angels singing, what is that they say?
Eat and drink rejoicing, joy is here to stay
Jesus son of Mary is born again today

(Chorus x2)
Ivory Madonna, dying in the dust
Waiting for the manna coming from the west
This song is from the album "Live", "Signing Off", "The Best of UB40 - Volume One", "The UB40 File", "The Very Best of UB40" and "Red Red Wine: The Collection".
