lyrics

Rather be different than the same
She’ll take solution over fame now
She’ll take forgiveness over blame
Travelling down now
She’ll take the sunshine over rain, let it fall upon her
Something to take away the pain now, never one for drama
A world away again
All happening now now now…

Rather be moving than delay
She’ll want adventure not escape now
She took an overnight train
Travelling south-bound
She’ll take the wisdom over aim, let it fall upon her
Something to learn and never claim now, never one for drama
No need to play that game
All happening now now now…

And there, she took on the world now…
Ubuhle bentombi bubonwa ngezendzo
(The beauty of a woman is seen through her actions)
Her hair can be let down
Ubuhle bentombi bubonwa ngezendz
To be fair, she’ll take on the world now…
Ubuhle bentombi bubonwa ngezendzo
Her cares, behind her now.

Hamba ntombazana, hamba ntombazana,hamba ntombazana,hamba ntombazana
(Go girl…move girl! Go girl…move girl!)
