Simple Minds – Sun City lyrics

South Africa Away to South Africa
Got to say I ain't gonna play Sun City
Chorus:
I ain't gonna play Sun City
I ain't gonna play Sun City
(Everybody Say)
I ain't gonna play Sun City
(No baby)
I ain't gonna play Sun City

Relocation to phoney homelands
Separation of families I can't understand
Twenty three million can't vote 'cause they're black
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back I'm gonna say

Out Government tell us "we're doing all we can"
Constructive engagement is Ronald Reagan's plan
Meanwhile people are dying and giving up hope
This quiet diplomacy ain't nothing but a joke

Chorus:

It's time to accept resposibility
Freedom is a priviledge nobody rides for free
Look around the world baby it cannot be denied
Why we're always on the wrong side

Chorus:

Boputhuswana is far away
But we know it's in South Africa no matter what they say
You can't buy me I don't care what you pay
Don't ask me Sun City 'cause I ain't gonna play

Chorus:

Relocation to phoney homelands
Separation of families I can't understand
Twenty three million can't vote 'cause they're black
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back I'm gonna say

Chorus:
