Some people died for this
They gave up their beautiful lives for this
Turned their backs for this
Turned their backs on their love of peace for this
To see South Africa come alive
Oh yea, to see South Africa come alive.

And some found the words for this
Told stories that took us to the heart of this
They sang and they danced for this.
How they danced, they raised the roof for this.
To see South Africa come alive
Oh yea to see South Africa come alive

Yihla moya,
Yithla moya oyingcwele
To see South Africa come alive
Oh yea to see South Africa come alive.

And some prayed for this
Kept the faith and saw the truth in this.
How they believed in this
Believed that one day we could all come to this
To see South Africa come alive.

Yihla moya,
Yithla moya oyingcwele

Didn't some people say this world was not changeable?
Didn't some people say a bloodbath would be inevitable?
Didn't I once hear a famous Margaret say Mandela in prison that's justifiable?
And don't some people still say black and white ain't right?
These people are incredible.

Muchos lucharon, muchos creyeron, cantaron, bailaron, murieron
Muchos lucharon, muchos creyeron, muchos cantaron, bailaron.
Finalmente ganaron.
