Have a listen and see if you agree. Lyrics below the fold. Enjoy 🙂

Homeless, homeless

Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

Homeless, homeless

Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

We are homeless, we are homeless

The moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

And we are homeless, homeless, homeless

The moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

Zio yami, zio yami, nhliziyo yami

Nhliziyo yami amakhaza asengi bulele

Nhliziyo yami, nhliziyo yami

Nhliziyo yami, angibulele amakhaza

Nhliziyo yami, nhliziyo yami

Nhliziyo yami somandla angibulele mama

Zio yami, nhliziyo yami

Nhliziyo yami, nhliziyo yami

Too loo loo, too loo loo

Too loo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo

Too loo loo, too loo loo

Too loo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo loo

Strong wind destroy our home

Many dead, tonight it could be you

Strong wind, strong wind

Many dead, tonight it could be you

And we are homeless, homeless

Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

Homeless, homeless

Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

Homeless, homeless

Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake
