This song is a tribute to Steven Biko and Nelson Mandela.
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum

And they went home on an Easter road
On a silent night trying not to show
Who goes where and who goes when
Thinking some day soon they'll get it back again

From the ghetto in Capetown to dig the gold
Little black baby can't be sold
Under tin roof and a plastic wall
Thinking some day soon we're gonna leave it all.

And the renegades sing all the renegades songs
And the ones who know hope they're doing wrong
The blacks and the coloureds play the Biko Drum
All the blacks and the coloureds play the Biko Drum

Transvaal kids on a Transvaal day
Little by little they show the way
To a city of dreams on solid ground
Thinking someday soon we're gonna come around

Steve he's living in a prison cell
All his friends that know hope he's doing well
Down here they listen to the Biko Drum
Down here they listen to the songs he sung

And the renegades sing all the renegades songs
And the ones who know hope they're doing wrong
The blacks and the coloureds play the Biko Drum
All the blacks and the coloureds play the Biko Drum

Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum

Nelson, listen to the people sing
Nelson Mandela the people's king
Twenty-seven years in a white man's jail
Twenty-seven years they couldn't make him say...

All the renegades sing all the renegades songs
And the ones who know hope they're doing wrong
The blacks and the coloureds play the Biko Drum
All the blacks and the coloureds play the Biko drum

Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
we're singin now, we're gonna sing
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
we're singin now, we're gonna sing
Way-a listen to the Biko Drum
