Saphel'isizwe yhooo!
Saphel'isizwe yhooo!
Xham xham'andingoxam'andixakekanga ntonje ndixhelek'emphefumlweni
Basishiye ngendlel'emangazayo

Siman'ukuzibuz'okwenzikileyo
Nisishiye nentliziy'ezingamahlwili
Nisishiye nezijwili
Soyiphalaza phi le mbilini?
Ilanga litshon'emini
Inj'izalel'endlwini
Nkos'ubuphi?

Intliziyo zinxekenxeke
Kaloku singamabhetyebhetye
Bambi bayekeyeke
Nkosi sisondeze usithuthuzele
Kaloku singamanene sesibhekele
Ungaze usiyekele
Saluse

Ibuhlungu natsi into
Sixhelekile
Singcwatywe siphila silulutsha
Mazixole intliziyo
Intliziyo uba biliqatha ngendisithi ikrunekile
Namhlanje asikwaz'ilala njenge xhego elingenacuba

Hambani bantakwethu
Nonwabe apho nikhoyo
Niphumle ngoxolo
Nisishiyile kweli limagad'ayahlaba

Mandiyishiye apha bakuthi...akuphelangamazwi ntonje
Ndixhelek'emphefumlweni
