“SIZWILE”

Bongi Mvuyana - Sizwile Lyrics

Sizwilesizwile ngeyingane ziyaphela
Sizwilesizwile ngabafazi bayahlushwa

Sizwilesizwile ngamadoda ayaqedwa

Sizwilesizwile ngeyingane ziyaphela
Sizwilesizwile ngalelizwe liyamoshwa

Sizwilesizwile ngamadoda ayaqedwa
Sizwilesizwile ngalomhlaba uyaphela

Break

Bakithi, ayi ncedani bo
Bakithi, ilizwe liyaphela
Bakithi, hhayi ncedani bo
Sizani, hhayi hhayi liyaphela
Hhayi liyamoshwa

Bakithi, ayi ncedani bo
Bakithi, ilizwe liyaphela
Bakithi, hhayi ncedani bo
Sizani, hhayi hhayi liyaphela
Hhayi liyamoshwa

SIZWILE - English Translation

We’ve heard that the children are dying
We’ve heard that the women are being abused

We’ve heard that men are being killed

We’ve heard that the children are dying
We’ve heard of how the Earth is being depleted

We’ve heard that the men are being killed
We’ve heard how the world is being diminished

My people, please help
My people, our world has diminished
My people, please help
Lend a hand, it has diminished
It’s depleted
