GUAVA JUICE

           shake shake my comrade

           shake that invention of the working class

           shake that unifying medicine before it’s too late

           shake before the time come to pass

           shake that guava juice

           throw throw qabane

           throw that liquid of capitalist invention

           throw the blood of Ntsikane

           throw before they see your intention

           throw that guava juice

           dance dance my hero

           dance around the fire of resistance

           dance at the success of your throw

           dance because the dogs are still at a distance

           dance for that guava juice

           make make my young lion

           make another guava juice

           make another one as strong as iron

           make many more until they beg for a truce

           make those many guava juices

           beg, beg you bastard

           beg that your filthy skin be spared

           beg that your blood does not flood

           beg because we have many guava juices stored

           beg those little dangerous guava juices
