Sy's Al Wat Ons Het

Other Songs


Iewers klink die eggo
Nog ‘n skoot uit ‘n geweer
Iewers vlug daar diere
En ‘n groot boom val neer
Iewers in die verte
Word nog ‘n stad gebou
Iewers vaar ‘n vragskip
Oor die see se laaste blou

En iewers onder alles
Sug moeder aarde swaar

Sy kyk oor haar skouer
Sy tel nog ‘n jaar
Sy dink aan toe sy jonk was
En mooi en sonder pyn
Maar nou is dinge anders
Sy voel die lewe verdwyn

KOOR

Sy vryf haar moeë bene
Sy't ‘n lang pad geloop
Sy wonder oor haar kinders
Dis haar heel laaste hoop
Sy vou haar hande saam
Soos ‘n eensaam gebed
O, wanneer gaan ons leer
Sy's al wat ons het

Moeder aarde draai haar om
Uit die son se ergste brand
En sy droom van dugte woude
En haar oë waai vol sand
Sy soek na haar kinders
Maar hul dans nou met musiek
Langs duisend vuil riviere
Langs berge van plastiek

KOOR

Somewhere sounds the echo
Another shot from a rifle
Somewhere animals are fleeing
And a big tree falls down
Somewhere in the distance
Another city is build
Somewhere sails a cargo ship
Across the last blue of the sea

And somewhere underneath it all
Mother Earth sighs ponderous

She's looking over her shoulder
She counts another year
She's thinking of her youth
Beautiful, without pain
But now things are different
She's feels the life disappear

CHORUS

She's rubbing her tired legs
She walked a long way
She's wondering about her children
That's her last hope
She's folding her hands together
Like a solitary prayer
Oh, when are we going to learn
She's all that we've got

Mother Earth is turning herself
Out of the sun's worst blaze
And she's dreaming of lush woods
And sand is blowing in her eyes
She's looking for her children
But now they dance to the music
Alongside thousand dirty rivers
Alongside mountains of plastic

CHORUS
