Johnny Clegg – Ijwanasibeki lyrics

Chorus
Wemadiliza, wemadiliz' inkani!
Ijwanasibeki langenzani!
Wemadiliza, wemadiliz' inkani!
Ijwanasibeki langenzani!
Qed' inkani eyamadoda!
Ijwanasibeki langenzani -- zabalaza wemfana!
Ijwanasibeki langenzani -- wemaqed' inkani!
Blow whistle blow
Down you go alive
The cage is falling
Like a comet in the night
Beads of sweat glisten
In the underground light
Smoulder boudler
Rock reeks fumes
Songs of the outlands
Change colour when shift is due
And you've grown a little older
Seen bone blown smoking blue!
Chorus
Grow city grow
Ten thousand men below
Bleed the burning womb
Make the sun-rock show
In the wider horizon
Where a million lifetimes flow
And you know the secret
That glitters and glues the best
Like the feathers of a dead bird
That feather the next bird's nest
Jwanasibeki!
Tomorro, tomorro, tomorro
Wo-hum-m-wo-hum!
Wo-hum-wo-lo-lo-ma!
Chorus
Can you hear, can you hear me
Can you hear, can you hear me
In the wider horizon
There's a life-song
All my life gone
In a mine song
I shake the world beneath your feet
'cause I'm just working a little bit
