ry in die kar
Kobus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ons ry in die kar
Van Kaapstad af Joburg toe
Ons ry in die kar
Vyfster vervoer

Ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar
Ons glip deur die tolkek sonder om te betaal
Op Beaufort gaan ons bene rek

Ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar

Die bome streep groen verby
Ons ry in die kar
Avontuur vir jou en my

Ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar

Soms toe-oà in die regterbaan
Ons ry in die kar
Lag vir die rylopers wat in die reÃn staan
(Suffer baby)

Ons ry in die kar
Niks wat ons pla in die wêreld nie
Ons ry in die kar
Gekookte eiers en toebroodjies

Ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar

Kobus! Op die radio
†Dink jy nou?′
Laat ons vergeet van daai oà van jou
Ons ry in die kar
Wiele suis rustig oor wit lyne op swart

Ons hoef nie te praat nie
Want ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar
Ons het geen sorges nie

Ons ry in die kar
Ons dra ook nie gordels nie
Ons ry in die kar




Ons ry in die kar
Ons ry in die kar

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Kobus's song "Ry in die Kar" depict a road trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg. The repetitive chorus "Ons ry in die kar" (We drive in the car) reinforces the theme of a journey and the freedom that comes with traveling by car. The lyrics paint a picture of the scenery passing by as they drive, with lines like "Die bome streep groen verby" (The trees streak past in green). The song captures a sense of adventure and escapism, as the couple in the car enjoys the road trip and laughs at the unfortunate souls standing in the rain waiting for buses ("Lag vir die rylopers wat in die reën staan").


The lyrics also highlight some mischievous behavior, such as sneaking through toll gates without paying ("Ons glip deur die tolhek sonder om te betaal") and stretching their legs at a place called Beaufort. The song also mentions Kobus on the radio and sarcastically asks if the listeners think about him. Overall, "Ry in die Kar" is a lighthearted and carefree song that captures the joy and freedom of a road trip.
