LYRICS
Africa:

Verse1
In the beginning of time/Hee...my Afrikan people/they were so wise in such a way/that
they could tell us the secrets of the universe/from north to west/to east to south/
Helele..bebaphila kamnadi (they lived peacfully)/bebadla elikapondo/bengena nxa nomuntu
(they lived comfortably without hassles)/Oh Mama Afrika I'm so in love with you

Chorus

Verse2
Uma uthi ubheka amazinyo abo (lwhen you look at their teeth)/Hey amhlophe athe qwa(white as snow)
Ingani ubuntu bubhalwe eb'sweni baba(humanity written on their faces)/Nangendlela abakekela
ngayo (the way they move)/uyabona ukuba umntwana wase Afrika (You clearly can see she is t
he daughter of Afrika)/Ngithi ungakulinge ubheke emumva (I dare you to look back)/Hee Mama
Afrika I'm so in love with you...


Chorus

Bridge:
So hlala si khona thina/E Afrika x 4
(We will always be in Afrika)
