Ti Abob tse!, I go to sleep at night,
just to open my eyes in the morning to see what’s not right.
A world where my own people see the politician as a shining star,
a world where my own people don’t even know who they are.
A world where my own people have been blinded from seeing the light
where they make us walk in tunnels full of fright.
The want to cut out my tongue so I cannot teach,
they want to cut off my hands so I cannot reach.
My people beware, the devil, //gamab, is amongst us,
the devil, //gamab, wants to stop us,
But i say go forth, PHAMBILE!!
Cause //gamab sees a barrier, and //gamab smells fear,
//gamab smells you Ti Abob tse!, he know you are here…
