Wake up Vuyo!!!
Learn to speak our language again.
Take the ancestors’ drum and light the way with candles.
Wear beads Vuyo!!! Wear your beads Vuyo
So that they can recognise you.
Wash Vuyo, so that they can smell
Your true African scent again.
Ask them for fire again.
Ask them for power again.
Hit the drum Vuyo!!!
Rest on the goatskin.
And also try to sing!
Explain to them why you have not
Slaughtered a goat ever since.
Tell them the lights in Hollywood blinded you.
Tell them uNonkenkeza bewitched you.
She cast a spell on you so you turn your back
To us and explain European countries and
Turn into reality television stars.
I am sure they will still hear with that
American scent of Zulu.
I am sure they will recognise you in that pink dye.
They will see you in that white skin.
Can you not talk now Vuyo!!!
Gida Vuyo!!! Giya Vuyo!!!
Wake and drink some umbhubhudlo you might
Regain a bit of strength.
