When You Come Back

This is the unknown grave
The one who died maintaining his might
His will being so strong and musically inclined
His sad melodies coming out like smoke from the wood fire
And he sang

Mayibuye iAfrica, sing now Africa
Sing loud, sing to the people
Let them give something to the world and not just take from it

And we'll ring the bells when you come back
We'll beat the drums when you come back home

We'll ring the bells when you come back
We'll beat the drums when you come back home

We'll ring the bells when you come back
We'll beat the drums when you come back home

Our lost African music will turn into the music of the people
Yes, the people's music, for the people's culture
And I'll be the one who'll climb up the mountain
Reaching for the top of our Africa dais
While the poor women working for the lazy
Lord sing

Africa sing, Africa sing
Sing, sing Africa, sing, sing Africa
Let this illusion of memory be over from the people's minds and souls

Our lost African music will turn into the music of the people
Yes, the people's music, for the people's culture
And I'll be the one who'll climb up the mountain
Reaching for the top of our Africa dais
While the poor women working for the lazy
Lord sing

Africa sing, Africa sing
Sing, sing Africa, sing, sing Africa
Let this illusion of memory be over from the people's minds and souls

And we'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)

We'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)

We'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)

We'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)

We'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)

We'll ring the bells when you come back
(When you come back)
We'll beat the drums when you come back
(When you come back)
