Johnny Clegg – Makhelwane lyrics

Makhelwane (my neighbour)


Impela ayikho into esifuna lemhlabeni madoda (x2)
(indeed, our desire in this world for some truth always seems to come to
Nothing, men)
Ngibona abantu behlebana bezondana
(I see people slandering and hating each other)
Umunye uzonda umakhelwane
(each one in conflict with his neighbour)
Izinhliziyo zabantu ziyashisa ziyababa - ya!
(the hearts of all the people are on fire, they are bitter)
Umunye uzonda umakhelwane
(each one in conflict with his neighbour)
Chorus
Izinhliziyo zabantu ziyashisa emhlabeni (x2)
(the hearts of all people across the country are on fire)
Sothatha-phi amanzi, sothatha-phi amanzi wokucima lomlilo?
(where can we get enough water to put out these fires? )
Wangizonda makhelwane?
(why does my neighbour not get on with me? )
Sothatha-phi amanzi, sothatha-phi amanzi wokucima lomlilo?
(where can we get enough water to put out these fires? )
