Hayibo (feat Teba)

Intro by Teba: “Yo, I say, brothers, what’s this white guy saying, is he just talking nonsense? Speak then, we are listening. Pay attention everyone!”

(Xhosa) Verse 1

Sifuna inkululeko kodwa abantu baninzi
Bathanda ukuthenga izinto ezininzi
Sizama ukumosha lomhlaba nabantu
Nezilwanyana neentyatyambo

English translation:
We looking for freedom but so many people
They like to buy so many things
Are we trying to mess up this land and its people
And the animals and the flowers

Chorus 1

Ndithi, hayibo , ndithi hayibo
(English: I say “Gosh”, I say “Gosh”)
X 4
hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hayibo x 4

Verse 2

Ndihayika entabeni
Ndikhangela lendawo
"Siyaphi thina?" ndiyabuza kubawo
Masivule indlebe asimameli kumama
Yiyo loonto sisathenga iHumma

I hike on the mountain
I check out this place
Where are we going, I ask to the father
Lets open our ears, we are not listening to the mother
That is why we are still buying Hummers

Chorus 2

Ndithi, hayibo , ndithi hayibo I say “Gosh”, I say “Gosh”
X 4
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh hayibo x 4

Ragga Verse:

Corruption no gonna work
Righteousness have to rule this here earth
You could break uno leg
If uno rob people, and your belly pretty fat
Raise your hands in the air
If you support this family affair, well
Peace and love we declare
Quite a White Ou and Teba
We care. Kaboom.

Chorus 1 repeat.

Verse 3:

Vukani madoda masincedisane
Kubi ukucinga uba asifani
Yintoni impendulo andiyazi
Ukuhlisa umoya siyakwazi

Wake up, men, we must help each other
Its bad to think we are different
What is the answer I don’t know?
But we can bring spirit onto earth!

Chorus 2 repeat
