"One (Hu)'Man, One Vote" as written by Jonathan Paul Clegg and Leslie F Summerfield....
Bayeza abafana bancane wema
Bayeza abafana bancane wema
Baphethe iqwasha, baphethe ibazooka
Bathi sangena savuma thina,
Lapha abazange bengena abazali bethu
Nabadala, bayasikhalela thina ngoba asina voti.

Hayiyaah!

The west is sleeping in a fragile freedom
Forgotten is the price that was paid
Ten thousand years of marching through a veil of tears
To break a few links in these chains
These things come to us by way of much pain
Don’t let us slip back into the dark
On a visible but distant shore
A new image of man
The shape of his own future, now in his own hands
He says:

One ’man, one vote
Step into the future
One ’man, one vote
In a unitary state
One ’man, one vote
Tell them when you see them
One ’man, one vote
It’s the only way

Bayeza abafana abancane

Hayiyaah!

In the east a giant is awakening
And in the south we feel the rising tide
The soul inside the spark that gives breath to your life
Can no longer be made to hide
These things come to us by way of much pain
Don’t let us slip back into the dark
On a visible but distant shore
A new image of man
The shape of his own future, now in his own hands
He says:

One 'man, one vote
Step into the future
One ’man, one vote
In a unitary state
One ’man, one vote
Tell them when you see them
One ’man, one vote
It’s the only way
