Mshini Wam Lyrics

Note: this track has been trimmed from its original length, so these lyrics are truncated. Also, I apologize for any places where I've mis-heard the lyrics, and welcome corrections from anyone whose ability to parse South African hip-hop is better than mine!


What's in your boy with kalashnikov gun
AK-47 like a toy for the fun
shoot you where you stand if you want to act dumb
pa-rum-pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum

BFG, that's big fucking gun
Township jive like fee fo fi fum
Burn down the slum to the ground if it burn
pa-rum-pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum

Girls!
What's in your boy with kalashnikov gun
AK-47 like a toy for the fun
shoot you where you stand if you want to act dumb
pa-rum-pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum

Sing: rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum...

(Bang) (Bang)

How we went from a young boy to a big man!

Parley big man, Mr. Cabinet Seeker
Mr. Chief Speaker still packing the heat-ah
Drove real fast, too fast for the cheetah
Now we run an army, roll that much deeper

Mr. my majesty, you can take a seat, sir
Couldn't give a fuck if you're J, Paul, or Peter
Pumping these fists with a ANC t-shirt
Funny got so man can I take him as I see sir

Township boy, fourteen, so militant
Bow to the molotov, throw so diligent
Accurate marksman, got good vision
Cool well he got to be, neckaline, finishing

pa-rum-pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum what finishing
collaborators, traitors, centipede
Give this boy religious, so much that's suspicious
Hunt the man down, know too many businesses

rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum
rum-pum, rum-pum, rum-pm-pum pum-pum

What's in your boy with kalashnikov gun
AK-47 like a toy for the fun
shoot you where you stand if you want to act dumb
pa-rum-pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum pum-pum-pum
