Homenagem Musical a Nelson Mandela

Sendo o Apartheid o regime de que Mandela foi vítima e pelo qual empreendeu a sua luta, para homenagear esta incontornável personalidade mundial, nada melhor que a seguinte música composta por Peter Tosh (1977), cuja reprodução seria proibida nesse ano, tanto em Old England, como na África do Sul.


Peter Tosh - Apartheid
(Versão Original, 1977)


You in a me land
Quite illegal
You're in a me land
Dig out me gold
In a me land
Digging out me pearls
In a me land
Dig out me diamonds

We a go fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

You're in a me land
And you build up your 'partment
You're in a me land
You build up you're regimes
You're in a me land
Only talk 'bout justice
You're in a me land
Handing down injustice

We're gonna fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
My brothers got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

You're in a me land
You no build no school for black children
You're in a me land
No hospital for black people
You're in a me land
You build your prison
You build their camp

We got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We gonna fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

Africa's for black man
Remember
There certain place in Africa
Black man get no recognition

So We a go fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
Black man got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

Cross the border
You take your might
Cross the border
To beat for right

We gonna fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

As for majority
Majority rule, yea
Who need minority
But that couldn't rule, yea

So We go fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

You break off

You're quite illegal
Right where you are
You get your forces

Filling ballistic missiles

Black man got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
Come on and fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We gonna fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid
We got to fight, fight, fight, fight against apartheid

Aproveitando a ocasião, partilho outro tema, raro, em que Peter Tosh acompanha com uma "melódica" a versão dub (instrumental) do tema Armagideon, de Bunny Wailer, impressa como Anti-Apartheid:
