Freshlyground – Zithande lyrics

Abo Mjongeni bavaya nge Mercedes
Mna nocarolina siyakorobha
Asikhalazi! Sityisa aboo mamisa
Mna nocarolina siyasebenza
Bagqithile naboomatiba
Ngoku bekusithiwa uzasisindisa
Kanti walile naye uthat Umbeke
Phofu mna nocarolina besimbona...
Nabomadam basithathela phantsi, bathethela phezulu
Nama-owu ethu awas'khathalelanga, asphathel' ingculaza
Bagqithile naboomahatma, ngoku bekusithiwa uzasisindisa
Kanti walile naye uma Mariya, phofu mna nocarolina
Bamb' isandla sam, sibhabhe emafini
Mna nocarolina siyanicela
Yekan' ukuzicingela, mamela umadlamini
Mna nocarolina, siyanimema
Bagqithile nabooverwoerd, ngoku bekusithiwa uzasihlukumeza
Kanti walile nay' upik Botha, phofu mna nocarolina

(The Mjongeni's are driving around in Mercedes
Me and Carolina we scrub the floors
We're not complaining
We're feeding the small mouths
Me and Carolina we are working
Gone by are the Matiba's
When we'd hoped that they would save us
And failed has That Umbeke
Although we saw him coming
And the madams they take us so low by speaking so high
But we see through them
And our boyfriends, they don't care about us
They bring us aids
We see through them
Gone by have the Mahatma's
When it was hoped they would save us
And failed has Mother Mary
Me and Carolina saw it coming
Hold my hand and may we fly in the clouds
Me and Carolina ask you to stop being so selfish
Me and Carolina we invite you
Gone by have the Verwoerd's
When it was said that they would destroy us
And failed has Pik Botha
But me and Carolina, we saw it coming)
