You have to wash with the crocodile in the river
You have to swim with the sharks in the sea
You have to live with the crooked politician
Trush those things that you can never see

Ayeye ayeye 
Jesse mfana
Ayeye ayeye

It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
Every time you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
Goodbye
It's your world so live in it!

Beyond the door, strange cruel beautiful years lie waiting for you
It kills me to know you won't escape loneliness,
Maybe you lose hope too

Ayeye ayeye

Ayeye ayeye

It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
Every time you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
Goodbye
It's your world so live in it!

When I feel your small body close to mine
I feel weak and strong at the same time
So few years to give you wings to fly
Show you the stars to guide your ship by

It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
Every time you wake up I hope it's under a blue sky
It's a cruel, crazy, beautiful world
One day when you wake up I will have to say goodbye
Goodbye
It's your world so live in it!

It's your world so live in it
