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)
Hayi ke saguquka sathi bheka (Nants'iPhata Phata)

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)

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 remember hearing this song on the radio as a child in germany . I am now an old woman and it still gets me tapping my feet and wanting to dance . She was so much more than just an entertainer , quite a remarkable Lady , who used her celebrity status for the good of others .
