Penkele

Carl Cleves


Penkele oh oh oh oh Penkele
I don't know why oh why, Penkele

I don't know why
Why my friend had to die
This white man is so cruel
Fifteen years have passed
Since I've seen my brother
And now he's come to die In a foreign land

Mandela's in jail
Tears and blood are everywhere
But now the time has come
No one stops the rising sun
The people have come
The fire of liberty's blazing
In townships and in mines
From the Cape to the Limpopo
From die Rand and from die Veld
In the kraals and in the cities
The fire of liberty's blazing
The people are fighting
The people are dying
On the streets
Oh oh oh oh aye

And now I know why
Why my friend had to die
Take a stand
To his spirit no rest shall come
Until the day all men will be free
Elu elu oh Penkele
In townships and in mines
The fire of liberty's blazing
All men will be free
From the Cape to the Limpopo
The people are fighting
The people are dying
