Inna me land, quite illegal
You inna me land, dig out me gold, yes
Inna me land, diggin' out me pearl
Inna me land, dig out me diamond

We a go fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

You inna me land an' you build up your parliament
You inna me land, you build up your regime
You inna me land, only talk 'bout justice
You inna me land, handin' down injustice

We gonna fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
Brothers got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

You inna me land, you no build no schools for black children
You inna me land, no hospital for black people
You inna me land, you built your prison
You inna me land, you built your camp

We got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We gonna fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

Africa is for black man, remember
But certain place in Africa
Black man got no recognition

So we have to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
Black man got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

You cross the border, you shoot after children
Cross the border, shoot down women
Cross the border, you take your might
Cross the border to beat the right

We gonna fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

Ask for majority
Majority rule, yeah
You the minority
But that couldn't rule, yeah

So we go fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We gonna fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

Break off, break off from Britain
You're quite illegal right where you are
You get sources from colonial powers
Takin' my diamond, fillin' ballistic missiles

Now we have to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
Black man got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

Come on and you fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid

We gonna fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight
Fight 'gainst apartheid
