In the closed down market
Kicking up the papers,
with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
AND held loosely AT his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news
Chorus: So how can you tell me you're lonely,
and say for you that the sun don't shine,
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of (Witbank)
I'll show you something to make you change your mind.
Translated: Crime and politics make business people leave the land
The load has just gotten too heavy : Three million taxpayers support 16 million people on social grants and 20 million people unemployed.
I cannot visit our park anymore, due to the risk of gettting murdered or mugged - and who would in any case like to visit such a paper strewn park?
