LYRICS:

Sun City, Sun City
South Africa, South Africa
We’re rockers and rappers united as one
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 some truth
We’ve realized there’s only one thing we can do
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City

Relocation to phony homelands
Seperation of families, I can’t understand
23 million can’t vote because they’re black
We’re stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City

Our government tells we’re doing all that 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 ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun ity

It’s time to accept our responsibility
Freedom is the privilege, nobody rides for free
Look around the world, baby it can’t be denied
Why are we always on the wrong side
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
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 ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City

Relocation to phony homelands
Seperation of families, I can’t understand
23 million can’t vote because they’re black
We’re stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
I ain’t gonna play Sun City
