Let me tell you about my time in a taxi
where Barry Ronge was sitting next to me and he said, “Son,
I’d give this ride a terrifying two but I wouldn’t complain if i were you
because at least you can still buy your fruit while others dream of fresh produce”

I want to tell you about my time in a cable car
on my way to table mountain where you can see real far
Where Eddie Ecktein said to me, ‘When you go home and turn on the telly
don’t worry about the crime you see, because the view up here is what counts to me”

We’re proudly, people of this land and sea
we’re proudly, singing out for this country
We’re proudly, exploiting our identity
so you can feel safe inside ideals of nationality

Let me tell you about this time in the V & A (waterfront)
when I saw Felicia Mabuza Suttle in the Pick n Pay
And she said, “Don’t cry you’re beautiful my baby”
and I just thought that maybe she was right

We’re proudly, people of this land and sea
we’re proudly, singing out for this country
We’re proudly, exploiting our identity
so you can feel safe inside ideals of nationality

How could you still disagree
about the hopes and dreams we guarantee
You just can’t doubt our land S.A.
where all your cares can simply fly away

Fly away, fly away, fly away

We’re proudly, people of this land and sea
we’re proudly, singing out for this country
We’re proudly, exploiting our identity
so you can feel safe inside ideals of nationality

We’re proudly, people of this land and sea
we’re proudly, singing out for this country
We’re proudly, exploiting our identity
so you can feel safe inside ideals of nationality
We’re proudly, cashing in community
