Ever Since (Takalani)

Takalani Sesame

[Chorus]
Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be a popstar (Rockstar)
Popstar (Rockstar) (x2)

[Verse 1: Ishmael]
Grinding grinding seven days a week
Money money got me losing sleep
I party just to hear my heart beat
To keep it burning gotta stay lit
Fire blazing
Sfunukuba happy
Scela nisyek
Baba nkulunkulu skhanyisele
Ukuthi iikhwama zethu zhlale zcwele
Ngthandubumnandi

[Chorus]
Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be a popstar (Rockstar)
Popstar (Rockstar) (x2)
Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be popular (Rockstar)
Rockstar (Rockstar)
Popstar (Rockstar)

[Verse 2: Ishmael]
I remember like it's yesterday
All them records daddy used to play
And how they used to make my heart sing
And how the rhythm made my heart beat
I packed my bags and headed for the city
I always knew one day that I would make it
In this game of music and entertainment
That's been my story

[Chorus]
Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be popular
Rockstar
Popstar
Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be a popular
Rockstar (Rockstar)
Popstar (Rockstar)

[Verse 3: Ishmael]
I always tell all of these youngins
That giving up is not an option
Eventually someone will answer
And give you what is yours and then some
So go get it

Ever since I was a (Takalani)
Ngisase mncane ngiyi (Takalani)
Always wanted to be popular
