Johnny Clegg – Are You Ready? lyrics

Hawa Beke Mama Oye
Hamba ugadile (be alert and be on guard)
I feel a river in flood in my veins
I can feel your love in my brain
It wants to dance my life
Through a hurricane
Dance the mamba across
The Oshakati plain
Chorus:
Hamba ugadile 'mntanami (be alert and be on guard my child)
The world has crocodile eyes
And if you dance the
Oshakati mamba
Remember to cross yourself twice --
Are you ready
Hawa Beke Mama Oye
Hamba ugadile (be alert and be on guard)
I need to sail away, escape this cage
I can see the sky and the Milky Way
Be my lover tonight, show me the wisdom of life
Dance the mamba, across the Oshakati night
Hamba ugadile 'mntanami (be alert and be on guard my child)
The world has crocodile eyes
And if you dance the
Oshakati mamba
Remember to cross yourself twice --
Are you ready
And if you dance the
Oshakati mamba
You'll be dancing on desert air
Like a seagull searching for the ocean
Like a lover playing solitaire
