"Melody Maker (Madlokovu)" as written by and Mbongeni Ngema....
My father was a symbol of the future
My father was a symbol of tomorrow
x2

He used to take me by the hand
Make me listen to his music

Dee-ki-lish, dee-ki-lish, dee-ki-lish!
His guitar was sounding, dee-ki-lish!
Oh, was sounding dee-ki-lish
x2

Before he died, he said, “My son,
this music will live in you forever and ever.”
Oh, was sounding dee-ki-lish!
Before he died, he said, “My son,
this music will live in you forever and ever.”

Melody maker, give me more of that music
‘cause my life is empty without that rhythm!
Melody maker, give me more of that music
‘cause my life is empty without that rhythm!

Melodious voices of the birds
echo in my memories
Memories
x2

He took me on a journey to the mountains
and made me listen to the music of the birds
He took me on a journey to the fountain
and made me listen to the music of the water
The mountains and the rivers were singing
also singing all the music of tomorrow
The valleys and the forests were drumming
also drumming all the rhythms of tomorrow

Rest in peace, Father Madlokovu
Your contribution to our culture is forever.
x2
Forever and ever, Father Madlokovu
Your contribution to our culture is forever.
x2
Rest in peace, Father Madlokovu
Your contribution to our culture is forever...
