This song is by Manfred Mann's Earth Band and appears on the album Somewhere in Afrika (1982).

a) Brothers and Sisters of Africa (Manfred Mann)

Brothers and Sisters of Africa
It's still the same
The words they use are just a game

Mothers and Daughters of Africa
It's not for me
To say to you what you must do

Amandla
Awethu
Maatla aruna

Brothers and Sisters of Africa
Amandla
You always knew
Awethu
That history belonged to you
Maatla aruna


b) To Bantustan? (Manfred Mann)

What do they do with a man
Whose Father was a Swazi?
What do they do with a man
Whose Mother was a Zulu?
Where do they send him?
Where do they send him?
What do they do
If that man's Grandmother was a Tsonga?
Do they send him
To Kwazulu, Bophuthatswana or Transkei?
I ask why?

What do they do to a man?
They take away his freedom
What do they do to a man?
They take away his woman
Where do they send her?
Where do they send her?
What do they do to a man?
They take away his children
Oh, they send them
To Kwazulu, Bophuthatswana or Transkei
I ask why?


c) Koze Kobenini? (How Long Must We Wait?) (Manfred Mann/Matt Irving)

(Approximate translation)
How long must we wait?
How long will they keep kiling our leaders?
How long must we suffer?


d) Lalela (Manfred Mann/John Lingwood)
