Johnny Clegg – Siyayilanda lyrics

Siyayibamba siyayilanda
Ngithibamba siyayilanda
Sithibamba siyayilanda
Fetch it siyayilanda
(we are fetching our future, grabbing our tomorrow)

Human figures in a dream
Heard them singing -- siyayilanda (we are fetching it)
You've got to get up
And carry on sing this song -- siyayilanda
There's a mean machine
Tear the bone clean, tell you
Where I've been -- siyayilanda
Eat, sleep on your feet
You're going to speak -- siyayilanda


A falling star in the night
Comfort the weeper -- siyayilanda
You turn to the left and you turn to the right,
Losers, keepers -- siyayilanda
Hold me close I'm trapped in
A night of seasons -- siyayilanda
A new sun rising up ahead
Coming your way -- siyayilanda


I can feel it in the air
My day is coming nearer
My day's a little nearer
