Pata Pata
Miriam Makeba Lyrics


Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata
Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata

Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata
Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata

Pata Pata is the name of the dance
We do down Johannesburg where
And everybody starts to move
As soon as Pata Pata starts to play

Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata
Saguquka sathi ‘bheka’
Nants’ iPata Pata

Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata
Yiyo mama, yiyo mama
Nants’ iPata Pata

Every Friday and Saturday Night
It’s Pata Pata time
The dance keeps going all night long
Til’ the morning sun begins to shine

Portuguese version, as people used to sing it when I was ten:
"Eu 'tou com pulga na cueca
Coça aqui, coça lá
Eu 'tou com pulga na cueca
Coça aqui, coça lá
Maria vai, Maria vai
Aqui, coça mais
Maria vai, Maria vai
Aqui, coça mais".

Mama Africa, Miriam Makeba, the Queen of Africa.
She was something else, she was a warrior, she was a voice, she was power.
Read up on her if you have a chance, you'll gain mad respect for this amazing lady.
In all honesty? She deserves a movie of her own.

@j0hnn13K Thanks so much for the reply. That's awesome! I think so too! The thumbnail for the video for the song Makeba by Jain has Jain in front of a wall with markings on it and one of them says Pata pata.

If I can I will produce such a movie.

@MIC STRO I dont know the song but i did look into its lyrics and it seems to me that the song is indeed a tribute to Miriam Makeba, a part of the lyrics state "Nobody can beat the mama Africa
You follow the beat that she’s gonna give you" and Mama Africa is the nickname of Miriam. So all in all, yes i think that song is about her. :)
