BRIEF DESCRIPTION

LUCKY DUBE/TOGETHER AS ONE/LYRIC

In my whole life
My whole life
I've got a dream
I've got a dream

Too many people
Hate apartheid
Why do you like it?
Why do you like it?

Hey you rasta man
Hey European, Indian man
We've got to come together as one
Not forgetting the Japanese

Hey you rasta man
Hey European, Indian man
We've got to come together as one
Not forgetting the Japanese

Hey you rasta man
Hey European, Indian man
We've got to come together as one
Not forgetting the Japanese

The cats and the dogs
Have forgiven each other
What is wrong with us?
What is wrong with us?

All those years
Fighting each other
But no solution
But no solution

Hey you rasta man
Hey European, Indian man
We've got to come together as one
Not forgetting the Japanese

Hey you rasta man
Hey European, Indian man
We've got to come together as one
Not forgetting the Japanese
