Housemartins – Johannesburg lyrics

Please don't show your soul to me
I think I'd see the light shine through
And please don't greet me on the street
I'd like to see a world without you
Please don't change your uniform
And start to mourn the thousands dead
And please wear what you've always worn
And don't be drawn by what I've said

'cause I've found there's nothing more
That I could say to you
Nothing I could do to change your mind
Change your ways and your tune

So please don't feel you have to sway
Or move away from how you feel
And please say what you mean to say
And always stay with a heart of steel
