In this world there is so
Much anger 
Our lives are in danger 
We are all living in fears 
we've got to stop the tears 

Life is for living 
Why must we wait
We all need some loving 
Then why do we hate? 

In South Africa things are 
 Still the same
The face of humanity still
hasn't changed  People have to fight to live together 
And share with one another 

We can change this to be
A better place for all
If we listen to others when they call
Give a shoulder to lean on
When they fall
Let us bring down the
 Apartheid wall

 Innocent people pay with their lives
'Cause the truth it cuts like a knife 
Mandela's life is wasted in jail
 Raise your voices for freedom 

We can change this to be
A better place for all
If we listen to others when they call
Give a shoulder to lean on
When they fall
Let us bring down the
 Apartheid wall

Woza Mandela 
Sibizi' gama lakho 
Woza Mandela
