Paradise In Gazankulu Lyrics

Finda, finda the card is quick
If you catch the black eye, you catch the trick
So make your move, baas, but it could fool you
That's paradise here in Gazankulu
(Oh yes, ha ha ha)
Watch the card, don't watch the hand
It could take you to the promised land

Ah, Sissanyana, my sheebin queen
(Ah ah ah ah)
She ain't too pretty, but she body mean
(Whoop)
Lot's of good things that she'll do to you
(Oh no)
That's paradise here in Gazankulu
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)

How much you pay, how much it worth
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)
To get a bit o' heaven here on earth. (Eh)

Ah the bells of Zion tell you to pray
For the life hereafter, they make you pay. (Whoop)
But I'm just dealin' not tryin' to rule you (Oh yes ha ha)
That's paradise here in Gazankulu
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)

Take a chance, and I'll show you how
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)
You can go to glory, now
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)

Watch the card, don't watch the hand
(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)
Try to catch me, if you can
I ain't no tsotsi, I ain't that mean
My cards are tricky, but my game is clean

How much you pay?
How much it worth?
To get a little heaven right
Here on earth?
(Kunjani, Uh)

I'm the Shangaan
Pope of hope.
I do the African
Rope-a-dope
(Sikoni, ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza, baas)

How you see it
Now you see it
Sometimes you get it
Sometimes you won't

Ah well, in case you forget
Here's a reminder
The best game in town
Is finda, finda

(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)
(Sax solo)

(Amandla)
(Synthesizer solo)

(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)

(Ga way tu)
(Guitar solo)

(Ahh ahh ya way na coh thu ku ki laka gaza)

I said I ain't no tsotsi, I ain't that mean
My cards are tricky, my game is clean
How much you pay? How much it worth
To get a bit of heaven here on earth?
Gazan ku-uh-Gazankulu (Repeat several times)

Gazan ku-uh-Gazankulu (Repeat several times)
