Lyrics

Si hamba, si hamba lomhlaba

Some say, some say I'm a -
Nomad in the west
From Africa to England
Across my mother nest
Some say I'm a gypsy from the south
But let me say I'm half malay
There's many a man
Born into the Race of Tan

Some day, some day
I'll call a place my home
Back to Surabaya
Where father's seeds were sown
Some day I know it won't be long
Its taken me a lifetime
To know where I belong
But let me say I'm half malay
There's many a man
Born into the Race of Tan

Born into the Race of Tan
Ilanga.
Ijesu.ijesu

Some day, some day
I'll call a place my home
Across the Isles of Java
Down the Nile to the Limpopo
Some day I know some day it won't be long - hey hey
Its taken me a lifetime
To know where I belong. (wa tule wa tule)

But let me say I'm half malay
There's many a man
Born into the Race of Tan
(ilanga.sizinzulane e langa)
Born into the Race of Tan
(sizinzulane e langa)
Born into the Race of Tan
(ilanga.sizinzulane e langa)
Born into the Race of Tan
(sizinzulane e langa)
