Thyeo Croft – Mandela Madiba lyrics

(VOICE REVERB)
This is a celebration of life
Of a great man who is no more
The great, baobab tree that has fallen
This is a celebration of life in itself!

VERSE 1
Countless are the leaders of the world we’ve lost
Yet your demise is hard to take
It is as if it is our first
Oh! Oh! Oh! Mandela

VERSE 2
Countless are the African leaders we’ve lost
Yet your demise is hard to take
It is as if it is our first
Oh! Oh! Oh! Mandela

We mourned we cried we wailed
Distune, pitch less our tone
We mourned we cried we wailed
[2 X]

The sun will rise tomorrow
The next day and the next
But it won’t be as bright as yesterday
[2 X]

CHORUS:
[Mandela Mandela Mandela Mandela]
[Backing vocals]
Ooohhh! Mandela.. Son of Africa!
Ooohhh! Mandela.. Son of liberty

Oh! Mandela! Mandela! Mandela!
Mandela! Mandela! Mandela!
Mandela! Mandela! Mandelaaaaaa!

[Saxophone interlude]

Mandeeeela.. Son of Africa!
Mandeeeeela.. Son of Unity!
[2 X]

[Vocal epilogue]
In every tribe, in every nation
Once will arise a leader
Makers of history when they lead
This is a tribute to the great tree that has fallen

Ooohhh! Mandela.. Son of Africa!
Ooohhh! Mandela.. Son of liberty

Oooh! Madiba! Ma-Madibia! Oh Madiba!
Ooooh Madiba! Madibia! Madiba!

[FADE OUT]
