Taunting from the hill tops, just out of reach
Smiling pretty smiles, telling your white lies
Stringing me along on your sweet promises
Humi you sure know how to Tantalize

You give yourself to those who don't deserve you
You go where you are not supposed to be
I know someday that I am going to have you
Someday you'll have to give yourself to me

Amandla, Amandla dancin in the distance, sayin I'll be free
Amandla, Amandla it's time to change your partner
it's time to dance with me
Amandla, Amandla you're hanging with the wrong crowd
You need a change of scene
Amandla, Amandla don't lose all your self-respect
You know just what I mean

Standin on Commissioner street, in the pouring rain
Tappin my toe, tappin my toe
This time I was so sure that you would be here
But once again you decided not to show

Amandla, Amandla dancin in the distance, sayin I'll be free
Amandla, Amandla it's time to change your partner
it's time to dance with me
Amandla, Amandla you're hanging with the wrong crowd
You need a change of scene
Amandla, Amandla don't lose all your self-respect
You know just what I mean

you're running with the fools,
You know Im more your style
Driving me crazy with that someday smile

Amandla, Amandla dancin in the distance, sayin I'll be free
Amandla, Amandla it's time to change your partner
it's time to dance with me
Amandla, Amandla you're hanging with the wrong crowd
You need a change of scene
Amandla, Amandla don't lose all your self-respect
You know just what I mean

you're hanging with the wrong crowd
You need a change of scene
don't you lose your self-respect
You know just what I mean

Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
Amandla
