in da' dusty streets of their ghetto/

entleik … sometimes/
u ya ng' bon' min'/
ma ng' vhay' ekasilam'/
i look and listen/
i listened and heard people/
talking about house breaking/
i looked around and/
saw daily sun's headline/
'CHILD RAPES GOGO' /
In this ghetto township/
This ghetto is full of corrupt-minds/
Unthinking and uncaring society/

ekasi lam' amajita athi aya phanda/
u zo wa thola a blome ekhoneni/
you will hear them say:/
heita jita awu s'bemise ka da?/
they wear dickies pants/
mix it with loxion culture/
t-shirt and sneakers/
never mind their jockeys,/
underwear!/
kuse ghetto ka da!/
even the fourteen-year-olds hav' boy-friends/
they groove at the busy corner/
and have sex at the nearest bush/
they master deep kiss/
than most of us!/

u ya ngi bon' mina?/
ma ngi vhay' ekasi la ma kasie/
ke kereya bashanyana/
kissin' in front of a 67-year-old magogo/
who does not understand/
freedom of sexual orientation/
enshrined in the bill of rights/
i heard Gogo say nay' mhlolo /
mfowethu lana zi ya buya!/
life i spinner njhe ng' car wheel/
you become rich very quickly/
and die easily/

ekas'Lam' zi ya buwa!/
fresh girls date old crocks/
they call them sugar daddies/
young boys caress bamagogos/
and call them quick-ATM's/
cuz they provide and/
take them to five-star hotels/
somewhere in Sandton City/
to chow da' money/
left by their husbands/
who died of aids for datin'/
the pick-up girls,/
those who wear miniest of mini skirts/
which reveal everythin'/
ekasi' ku njalo!/
you like it or no/t
you partake or not/
they don't care about you/
they never forget one thin'/
da' reason they are here in Jozi?/
Chelete fela ntate!/

u ya ngi bon' mina?/
ma ng' vhay' ekasi' la ma kasi'/
ke kereya moshanyana' ka da mzabalazweni/
he sings with a great tune/
like Mbengwa/
he never went to music school/
and qualified as music master/
but he sings nice in iSizulu:/
"ngathi ngi ya hamba mina…/
nga hlangana ne isalukazi/
esigangeni baba/

ngathi mama wenzani?/
wathi mntanami ngiy***
kus'mzabalazwen'/
aku'namathoilethe lapha…"/
Ekas'Lam ku nje!/

Eintleik i life ya se kasie/
You will never understand/
But you know i mnandi!/
Sure yi ntswembu!/
Ekas' Lam…/

Ku lapho ng' bloma khona/
Ku lapho ng' gidla khona/
Ku lapho ng' groover khona/
Ku lapho ng' jola khona/
Phashasha pintjie/
Grand shlobo sam'!/

When you are getting a quotation for your personal automobile insurance don't overvalue your car. This will only result in your costs to get better and expense you more money in the long term. When it comes to any sort of accident, you will only be given money for the industry price of your car or truck anyway. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]App766udi[/url]
