Vukani

verse1:

Vukani ngathi nilele

Busuk’ obungenalitha

Nzulu uthandw’ entliziyweni

Ngeke side side side

Side sibe ngabantw’ abanye

Side sibe ndaweni enye

Wathakath’ ekhay’ ulizim

Ndenze ndiqondisise e

chorus

side side side sibebanye

ndohlala ndikukhangela

wandenzela phantsi

ekhaya wandenzela phantsi

Verse2:

Sasisakulala ngasonye

Silindel’ ingcinezelo

Namhla nguwe

Namhla nguwe

Nzulu nzulu wasenz’  intsasa

Nzulu inxeba esalishaywa

Savuk’ ekseni sesizinkomo

Mna nawe safel’ ubuntu

Ndenze ndiqondisise e

Thwel’ ubunzima sibuthwel’ ubunzima

Uhamba ngayibonayo

Make a tribe

verse1:

Do I make myself clear

When I say that I’m

Mad over you

You make me feel like I’m

On top of a thousand hills

You do that right

Baby you’re my light

You’re my sky blue

You make me free

chorus

come, let’s make a tribe

maybe in time

we’ll make it right

We should be flying high

This time will pass

We won’t be here for long

Verse2:

I prayed the void would overflow

Made it my mission to find you

This time I did it too

Life is much sweeter

Yes it is true

Since you came by here

I made it through the lean and mean

Now it’s better

With you’s better

Troubled Soldier

(throughout length of song)

wo i i wa wa ho i ho ho mh mh

verse1:

There’s a place where I must be

Over the rainbow there’s a place for me

Wallowed in self-pity too long

Woke up and the morning train was gone

Felt the chains pulling me down

All the way down deep underground

Saw my heros dropping yeah yeah

Lethargy set in like disease

Chorus

Troubled soldier in the know

Burdened by the future passed

Fighting fighting we’re all fighting

For a chance under the sun

Verse2:

There’s a chance we aught to be

Deadened by the future passed

It’s all in the choices we make

Will we swim or will we drown

It’s the crunch that makes us see

What we are and what we’re not

It’s the crunch that makes us see

What we are and what we’re not

Amandla wazi njani

Phantse ndammamela yena
