.

I was born inside the rain on a day of wonder
Deep inside my brain memories of thunder
I grew up a refugee, my life not fixed or free
I know the world’s not to blame
Cos’ everybody carries my name
 
CHORUS:
Oooh! These are my Fathers’ people – (Hawu Ngitshele! Ngitshele! - tell me! tell me!)
Oooh! This is where the Human tree once grew
Oooh !  We are the children of  a new world
Oooh ! We have a new dream pushing through
 
The sky is black with gunships , but I’m dreaming of a girl
In her eyes love  and friendship , but will she understand my world ?
Now I’m like a windswept sea, fear  and hope washing over me
Will she think my world is cruel , when I share my point of view?
 
CHORUS
 
Oh …It’s a strange world …   hawu ngitshele !  Ngitshele !yeah!
Oh ..It’s  a caged bird …yeah!
Oh…gimme what you say ….yeah!
Oh… gimme a brand new day …yeah!
 
CHORUS
