        Ahhhhhhh, Sun City
        na-na-na-na-na-na
        Sun City
        ....

        Na-na-na-na-na-na
        na-na-na, yeah

        We're rockers and rappers united and strong
        we're here to talk about South Africa
        we don't like what's going on
        It's time for some justice, it's time for the truth
        we've realized
        there's only one thing we can do

        We gotta say, I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        I, I, woh, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        Everybody say, I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        I-I-I-I-I-I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City

        Relocation to phony homelands
        separation of families I can't understand
        23 million can't vote because they're black
        we're stabbing out brothers and sisters in the back

        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City

        Our 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

        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        Na-na-na-na-na-na
        na-na-na, yeah
        Na-na-na-na-na-na
        na-na-na, yeah

        It's time to accept our responsibility, yeah
        freedom is a privilege nobody rides for free
Lou:    LOOK AROUND THE WORLD, BABY, IT CAN'T BE DENIED
        .... somebody tell me why -
        - are we always on the wrong side

        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        says, I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City

        Bophuthatswana 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 because I ain't gonna play

        I, I, I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
        I-I-I-I-I-I
        I ain't gonna play Sun City
