For help with the meaning of some of the words I use please use:

The Patois Dictionary

CELEBRATE MANDELA’S FREEDOM

CELEBRATE THE FREEDOM OF MANDELA CELEBRATE TODAY





CELEBRATE THE FREEDOM OF MANDELA

CELEBRATE CELEBRATE TODAY (REPEAT)



ON THE 11TH DAY OF FEBRUARY 1990

I WAS GLAD TO BE ALIVE AND ABLE TO SEE

NELSON MANDELA WALKING PROUD AND FREE

AFTER 27 YEARS IN CAPTIVITY



CHORUS



IN THIS WORLD WE’RE LIVING IN SO MANY THINGS ARE CHANGING

PEOPLE ARE NOW FIGHTING FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN

HAND IN HAND WOMAN AND MAN MARCH AGAINST THE SYSTEM

AND THEIR TELLING ALL THEIR LEADERS TO DO THE RIGHT THING YEAH

DO THE RIGHT THING, DO THE RIGHT THING

DO THE RIGHT THING WORLD LEADERS, DO THE RIGHT THING



CHORUS



AMANDELA POWER TO THE PEOPLE

AMANDELA AWE TU

AMANDELA POWER TO THE PEOPLE

AMANDELA AWE TU (REPEAT)



WELL THE STRUGGLE ISN’T OVER NO THE STRUGGLES JUST BEGUN

AND THE FIGHT AGAINST APART -HATE MUST GO ON & ON & ON

CAUSE EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE SHOULD APPLY TO EVERYONE

AND IF IT DON’T THEN THERE IS SOMETHING DEFINITELY WRONG

SO FREEDOM FIGHTERS NEAR AND FAR MAKE ROOM CAUSE HERE I COME

AND I AIN’T GONNA STOP AIN’T GONNA GIVE IT UP UNTIL THE BATTLES WON

WE WANT BLACK AND WHITE TO ALL UNITE TOGETHER AS ONE

CAUSE UNITED WE STAND BUT DIVIDED WE ARE DONE

SO ALL SOUTH AFRICANS COME ON & HEAR ME WHEN I SING

CAUSE MY MESSAGE TO ALL OF YOU IS NEVER GIVE IN

IN THE FIGHT AGAINST EVIL GOODNESS WILL WIN

AND IF YOU AGREE THEN YOU ARE FREE TO JOIN IN AND CELEBRATE!



CHORUS CELEBRATE
