Manfred Mann's Earth Band – Africa Suite lyrics

Brothers and sisters of africa
Brothers and Sisters of Africa
It still the same
The words they use are just a game
Mothers and Daughters of Africa
It's not for me
To say to you what you must do
Amandla
Awethu
Brothers and Sisters remember well
You always knew
The history belongs to you.
Amandla

To bantustan?
What do they do with a man whose Father was a Swazi?
What do they do with a man whose Mother was a Zulu?
Where do they send him?
Where do they send him?
What do they do if that man's grandmother was a Tsonga?
Do they send him to Kwazulu, Boputatswana, or Transkei?
I ask why?
What do they do to a man?
They take away his freedom
What do they do to a man?
They take away his woman
Where do they send him?
Where do they send him?
What do they do to a man?
They take away his children
Oh, they send him to Kwazulu, Boputatswana, or Transkei
I ask why?
Amandla, Amandla
Awethu, Awethu
Amandla, Amandla

Koze kobenini
(aproximate translation)
How long must we wait?
How long will they keep kiling our leaders?
How long must we suffer?

Brothers and sisters of azania
Brothers and Sisters of Azania
It still the same
The words they use are just a game
Brothers and Sisters of Azania
The wind of change
Will break the man who hold the gun.
Brothers and Sisters of Africa
It's not for me
To say to you what you must do
Amandla
Brothers and Sisters remember well
They can't controll
What's in your mind
What's in your soul
Brothers and Sisters of Azania
The chains of time
Will break the man-aca
