Celebrate (Mandela's Freedom)
by P. Murray and S. Morrison
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela.
Celebrate! Celebrate today.
On the 11th day of February 1990
I was glad to be alive and able to see
Nelson Mandela walking proud and free
after 27 years in captivity.
In this world we're living in so many things are changing.
People are now fighting for what they believe in.
Hand in hand woman and man march against the system.
And their telling all their leaders to do the right thing yeah.
Do the right thing, do the right thing (come on).
Do the right thing, world leaders, do the right thing.
Amandla (power to the people)
Amandla awe tu!
Now the struggle isn't over no the struggle's just begun
and the fight against apart-hate must go on & on & on.
'Cause equal rights and justice should apply to everyone
and if it don't then there is something definitely wrong.
So freedom fighters near and far make room cause here I come
and I ain't gonna stop ain't gonna give it up until the battle's won.
We want black and white to all unite together as one
'cause united we stand but divided we are done.
So all South Africans come on hear me when I sing
'cause my message to all of you is never give in.
In the fight against evil goodness will win
and if you agree then you are free to join in and celebrate
