"Mandela Day" Lyrics

simple minds


  • It was 25 years they take that man away
  • Now the freedom moves in closer every day
  • Wipe the tears down from your saddened eyes
  • They say Mandela's free so step outside
  • Oh oh oh oh Mandela day
  • Oh oh oh oh Mandela's free
  • It was 25 years ago this very day
  • Held behind four walls all through night and day
  • Still the children know the story of that man
  • And I know what's going on right through your land
  • 25 years ago
  • Na na na na Mandela day
  • Oh oh oh Mandela's free
  • If the tears are flowing wipe them from your face
  • I can feel his heartbeat moving deep inside
  • It was 25 years they took that man away
  • And now the world come down say Nelson Mandela's free
  • Oh oh oh oh Mandela's free
  • The rising suns sets Mandela on his way
  • Its been 25 years around this very day
  • From the one outside to the ones inside we say
  • Oh oh oh oh Mandela's free
  • Oh oh oh set Mandela free
  • Na na na na Mandela day
  • Na na na na Mandela's free
  • 25 years ago
  • What's going on
  • And we know what's going on
  • Cos we know what's going on
