Giyani Lyrics

Featuring: 
Siyayibiz' ashambeni!
Hayi, ngane (we are calling: hey! let’s go child of)
Yamashangane! (the shangaan)
 
Oh the river is wide
And the water is deep
Got no money and I can’t get to sleep
Takes all my courage to look down that long road
I am going to giyani
With such a heavy load
I’ve got to:
Shintsha (change)
Qinga (strengthen myself)
Qingel’isibindi (take courage)
And don’t give up
 
Chorus
Oh I’m going to giyani
Siyayibiz’ as’hambeni!
As’hambeni
Oh I’m going to touch
That magic mystery
Leaving my troubles behind me
 
Did you hear about the mouse
That went to the cat for love
The cat said:
Mouse, I can’t be what your’e dreaming of.
You’re so lonely. you’ve got it mixed up.
You’re looking down below for what lies up above.
 
You’ve got to
Shintsha (change)
Qinga (strengthen myself)
Qingel’isibindi (take courage)
Don’t give up
 
Chorus.....
