Tell him again he don't care much to hear
Mtsheleni madoda akafuni ukulalele

I was talking to him again
But the never understands me
He thinks it is very strange
That I should question what he hands me
He can't imagine I have a feeling for what I can be

Hey brother! Listen to the river whenever you want to remember the sea
Hey brother! Listen to the feeling in your heart it also flows through me

CHORUS:
Tell him again - he don't care much to hear
Tell him again - I need my liberty
Tell him again - freedom's in the air
Tell him again - take these chains off me
Tell him again - he don't care much to hear
Tell him again - he is just like me
Tell him again - freedom's in the air
Tell him again - I was born to be free

We have all been sentenced to this life
Everyone is a defendent
We are all prisoners of time
We are destined to spend it
But we must be free to choose the way we serve the sentence

CHORUS

If there comes a time
I will take this life
And lay it down
For my liberty
Oh it's such a shame
Such a tragedy
But it's all I have
To make you see
All the air I breathe
All the things I have
They don't mean that much
If I can't be free

CHORUS

So long I've been waiting
All my heart is breaking
Freedom long forsaken
Together we can make it
