lyrics
South Africa,
Away to South Africa.
Got to say,
I ain't gonna play Sun City

Chorus:
I ain't gonna play Sun City.
I ain't gonna play Sun City.
(Everybody Say)
I ain't gonna play Sun City.
(No baby)
I ain't gonna play Sun City.

Relocation to phoney homelands,
Separation of families I can't understand.
Twenty three million can't vote 'cause they're black,
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back I'm gonna say.

Out Government tell us "we're doing all we can".
Constructive engagement is Ronald Reagan's plan.
Meanwhile people are dying and giving up hope.
This quiet diplomacy ain't nothing but a joke.

Chorus

It's time to accept resposibility,
Freedom is a priviledge nobody rides for free.
Look around the world baby it cannot be denied,
Why we're always on the wrong side.

Chorus

Boputhuswana is far away,
But we know it's in South Africa no matter what they say.
You can't buy me I don't care what you pay,
Don't ask me Sun City 'cause I ain't gonna play.

Chorus

Relocation to phoney homelands,
Separation of families I can't understand.
Twenty three million can't vote 'cause they're black,
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back I'm gonna say.

Chorus
