Sun City

Ahh, sun city
Sun city
South Africa
South Africa

We're rockers and rappers united and strong
We're here to talk about South Africa we don't like what's going on (tell it)
It's time for some justice it's time for the truth (speak it)
We've realized there's only one thing we can do

We gotta say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
Oh, no, no, no
I, I, I, I, I, I
I ain't gonna play sun city
Everybody say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
No, no, baby
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city

Relocation to phony homelands
Separation of families I can't understand
23 million can't vote because they're black
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back

We're gonna say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
We're gonna say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city

Our government tells us we're doing all we can
Constructive engagement is Ronald Reagan's plan
Meanwhile people are dying and giving up hope
Well this quiet diplomacy ain't nothing but a joke

We're gonna say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
I ain't gonna play, no, no
We're gonna say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
Don't wanna play, don't wanna play

It's time to accept our responsibility
Freedom is a privilege nobody rides for free
Look around the world baby it cannot be denied
Some-somebody tell me why are we always on the wrong side

I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
Will someone tell me what's going on?
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city

Bophuthatswana is far away
But we know it's in South Africa no matter what they say (No matter what they say)
You can't buy me I don't care what you pay
Don't ask me sun city cause I ain't gonna play

We've gotta say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city

Relocation to phony homelands
Separation of families I can't understand
23 million can't vote because they're black
We're stabbing our brothers and our sisters in the back

We've gotta say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
No, no no, no, no
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
We've gotta say
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city
No, no, no no no
I, I, I, I, I, I
Ain't gonna play sun city

It ain't that far away
It ain't that far away, sun city
Don't go, no, no, no no no no no
Sun, sun, sun, sun city
Ain't gonna play sun city
Brothers and sisters being stabbed in the back
Don't, not gonna play sun city
