about

Ndingumlungu is my first track as a musician and I self-produced the video, challenging stereotypes both white and black in the new South Africa, and trying to inspire people to learn the joys of isiXhosa, the language of Biko, Tutu, Mandela, Mda, Mbutuma and Ma Brenda Fassie.

I need help to produce more tracks and vids comicly promoting multicultural harmony. Any support appreciated!

lyrics

INTRO: Mamelani - Listen up y'all!

CHORUS:
Ndisafunda isiXhosa (Im still learning Xhosa)
Ndithetha kancinci. (I speak a little only)
So Khawuzekelele (So Please talk slowly)
xa uthetha nami (when you speak with me) X 2


VERSE 1:
Ndithetha kancinci kuba ndingumlungu*
I talk a little xhosa because I'm a white ou.
Ngikhuluma kancane kuba ndingumlungu
I talk a little zulu because I'm a white ou.
Andikwazi ukujiva kuba ndingumlungu
I don't know how to dance because I'm a white ou.
Andikwazi ukucula kuba ndingumlungu
I don't know how to sing because I'm a white ou.

kuba - because,
ndingumlungu - I'm a white ou.

REPEAT CHORUS:

VERSE 2:
Andithathi iteksi x2 kuba ndingumlungu
I don't take taxis because I'm a white ou.
Ndiqhuba Mercedes x2 kuba ndingumlungu
I drive a Mercedes because I'm a white ou.
Andikwazi ukushela kuba ndingumlungu
I don't pick up girls because I'm a white ou.
Ndithanda ukukempa kuba ndingumlungu
I love to camp because I'm a white ou.
Ndinxiba ishortsi kuba ndingumlungu
I wear shorts because I'm a white ou.

REPEAT CHORUS:

VERSE 3:
Andiqondi, andikuva
I don't understand, I don't get you.

REPEAT CHORUS X2

Ewe - Yes in Xhosa
Yebo - Yes in Zulu
Hayibo - gosh!
Eita - Yo (slang)!

Makhosi - The Lords, the Chiefs, the Kings and Queens, the Ancestors. Makhosi!

"Sorry, ndingumlungu mna" Sorry, Im a whitey mos.
