Nizokwenzani (x2)


(English)

Now we’re moving forward,
What would you do?

1st verse

It is a hard life we live on earth, searching for money in corners because on Friday must be busy, to enjoy and dance with our friends, but how can we get money to live a good life? You know we want to leave behind smuggling and hassling business, so we may not kill each other, so may not shoot each other, so my friends would not take township money, in order to get money to live a good life. Hah! What would you do?

2nd verse

Wake up early in the morning just to go rob people, what would you do?
Get out of the house just to be in streets, what you would you do?
You spend entire time playing dice, what would you do?

Chorus

Nanananana, Hah!
What would you do?
