Lucky Dube – Affirmative Action lyrics

From where I stand
I can see the world
Getting smaller and smaller
And there'll be no place
For people like you Georgie
Who still live in the past
When you couldn't do things
For yourself, you blamed it on apartheid
You blamed it on the government and everybody
Now is the time to prove yourself
If you think affirmative action
Is the way out... no way... no way.

Constitution can be changed
From time to time,
But that does not mean that
You don't need no education

We are tired of people who
Think that affirmative action is the way out
And, is another way of putting puppets

Where they don't belong

I'm so sorry Georgie
But the only way to get our economy
Strong, is to have
An educated nation
And if you think affirmative action
Is the way out... no way... no way.


Education is still the key
Even though we have Affirmative action.

Chorus till fade.
