We wanna free the land
We wanna free the land
We wanna free the land

Detainee in detention
Under interrogation
They've paid that price
With their lives
The struggle for liberation
Just how long can this go on
Apartheid system is so wrong
Open a new chapter
Them boot out Botha

Dem boot out Botha
And free Nelson Mandela
No apartheid in a South Africa

Ow
Wanna free the land
Wanna free the land
Wanna free the land

They're searching for identity
In townships plagued in poverty
They've worked so hard
In gold mines
We call it urban slavery
Just how long can this go on
Apartheid system is so wrong
Open a new chapter
Them boot out Botha

Soweto, Johannesburgh
Durban, we must be heard
Cape Town, Johannesburgh
Free Mandela He must be heard


KHULANI AMASQHAWE
AWAPHUME AXOSIHOLA
UMBUSO WETHU FIKILE
VULA MANAGO
SOZWE SINSUNDO
HLOMANI ZIKHALI
MAQUAHW ANSUNDO
SIYE PHAMBIILI
ILISZE NGELETHU
AMANDLA NGAWETHU

Translation
FREE OUR HEROES
SET THEM FREE TO LEAD US
OUR FREEDOM HAS COME
OPEN THE PRISONG GATE
FOR THE BLACK NATION
ARM YOURSELF BLACK NATION
AND GO FORWARD
THIS COUNTRY IS OURS
THE POWER IS OURS
