Gold Digger for the World,
Avocado Picker, Distributor of Wine,
Player in Trade and the Continentís Business Man;
Strong, sensitive, competitive,
Country of the Rising Sun:
They tell me that you are feeble and I believe them, for I have seen your poverty of the single mothers and orphans alike.
And they tell me that you are a criminal and I answer: Yes, it is true. I have seen the wicked attack with no retaliation, with no karma.
And they tell me you are grim and my reply is: On the streets and in the empty neighborhoods I have seen the solemn abandonment.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who look down upon my country, but I keep my head up and say to them:
Come and display another country with legs of steel running without a single stop, staying determined and unafraid.
Display another country who screams out in painful empowerment amid the vast soccer fields of diversity and negativity.
Ferocious as a lion with an enormous mane, roaring with great power at lifeís obstacles,
Tearing down, building up
Dodging the bullets, perspiration running, screaming out in pain,
Dodging the bullets of judgment, perspiration still running, screaming out in perseverance,
Crying out to the rest of the world, my lonesome country will never give up.
My country, with legs of steel, will never quit.
My country will excel; South Africa will succeed.
