It’s scorching as I dance isipantsula next to these robots,
I have no water but as you drive by, give me two rand my brother,
Look how good I dance my sister,
don’t shut your car windows on me white man!
Give me two rand my brother, I’m hungry,
just two rand man,
Look how good I dance,
Look how good I move,
Look at my footwork,
Look how I swiftly I sway my black and white All star Converse,
Give me two rand please man,
Don’t shut your SUV window in my face Karen!
Just give me two rand man
