Pata Pata
Miriam Makeba Lyrics


Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)

Hay yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)

Helele saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPhata Phata)
Hayi ke saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPhata Phata)
Hayi ke aguquka sathi bheka bo (Nants'iPhata Phata)

Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)

Pata Pata is the name of a dance
We do down Johannesburg way.
Everybody starts to move
As soon as Pata Pata begins to play

Hayi saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Hayi ke saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Hayi ke saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Hayi saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)

Hay ke yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
IPata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)

Every Fridays and Saturday nights (Iyo Pata Pata)
It's Pata Pata time (Nants'iPata Pata)
The music keeps going all night long (Iyo Pata Pata)
Till the morning sun begins to shine (Nants'iPata Pata)

Hayi saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)
Saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPata Pata)

Hay ke yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)
Pata Pata yiyo mama yiyo mama (Nants'iPata Pata)

I was 15 the first time I heard this great piece of music. I'm 68 now. Still enjoying it.

Colours and races ? I don't care. We are all equal. The Lord created us all. And here something from the American Constitution:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

Always remember this ! It is the first act of freedom in human history.

Best wishes from the free and hanseatic City of Hamburg/Germany
