September '77
Port Elizabeth - Sonnenschein
In Sechs-Eins-Neun endlich Ruhe
Nur ein Stuhl ging aus dem Leim
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
- er ist tot

Du loescht gerade noch eine Kerze
Doch nicht ein grosses Feuer
Springt die Flamme einmal ueber
Treibt der Wind sie immer hoeher
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
- er ist tot

Die lange Nacht ist viel zu heiss
Ich traeum nur noch in rot
Die Welt da draussen ist schwarz-weiss
Nur eine Farbe tot
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
- er ist tot

Und alle, alle seh'n euch jetzt
Seh'n euch jetzt seh'n euch jetzt
Sie sind da
