Talk To The People Lyrics

There's a brawl in a lonely 'whites only' bar
A lekker groove in a classy shebeen
Someone betrayed in a government car
A silent movement on the stock market screen

A watchman playing on a Zulu guitar
A white soldier's blues in camouflage green
A migrant worker who come too far
A sailor aground in a submarine

Phendula wendoda
Lendlela sizofika kanjani
Phendula wendoda
Lendlela sizofika kanjani

Talk to the people
Walk through the country, oh
Listen to the children
Do you know the dreams they dream at night?

Only you, only you can see me
Only you, only you can free me
Only you breathe life into the land
Touch me with your healing hand

There's a township mongrel on the scrounge
A tribal feud in a municipal pound
A squatter with an ox, no land to plow
A shipment of A.K's on the underground

A throw of the dice on a Soweto train
A waiting knife, if you should win the game
A human rights lawyer with a torture claim
A union activist never ever seen again

Phendula wendoda
Lendlela sizofika kanjani
Phendula wendoda
Lendlela sizofika kanjani

Talk to the people
Walk through the country, oh
Listen to the children
Do you know the dreams they dream at night?

Only you, only you can see me
Only you, only you can free me
Only you breathe life into the land
Touch me

Phendula wemadoda, phendula, phendula
(Talk to me)
Phendula wemadoda, phendula, phendula

Phendula wemadoda, phendula, phendula
(Oh, they talk to me)
Phendula wemadoda, phendula, phendula

Phendula wemadoda, phendula, phendula
(Talk to me)
Phendula wemadoda, phendula

God hear the children
God save the country, oh
God hear the people
God bless the dreams we dream at night?

Talk to the people
Walk through the country, oh
Listen to the children
Do you know the dreams they dream at night?

Only you, only you can see me
(It's only you)
Only you, only you can free me
(It's only you)

Only you, only you can see me
(It's only you)
Only you, only you can free me

Only you, only you can see me
Only you, only you can free me
Only you, only you can see me
Only you, only you can free me
