Priddy Ugly – 30minutes to Soweto Lyrics

Priddy Ugly 30minutes to Soweto Lyrics

Meadowlands to Birch Acres
Kempton to Soweto
Had some neighbours right next door that never stepped into the ghetto
Lerato passed away before she stepped into stilettos
Most majitas are Pinocchios that never met Geppetto

Most of our fathers were the type to beat our mothers
So our mothers wore a face-beat just to keep it undercover
& deep beneath the covers there were heaps of secret lovers
Love we need to rediscover just to teach it to each other

Many many nights my mother cried herself to sleep
She never got the flowers for the times that she would weep
But black & blue eyes were the prizes she received
So my mother looked to God for the guidance she would seek

Mae desculpe
My Granny told us: Pray kea le kopa
Kea le kopa
Tsoga Badimo ba hau b’au tsusa
Die poko ts’au di sk’au tshusa

But of course
My cousin was a boss
In the block he was hot
Always kept it cocked
Kept the Glock by his crotch
Made a lot’a guap for the rock he would stock
If you spot the cops
Tuck the pot in your sock

Copped a drop top
Cherries tops they would drop
Spinning in a box & it cost him a lot
Was trying’na live soft at the top in a loft
Was ‘bout to lift off
When he got shot by an opp

A different world but the same hell
My other cousin in & out of a jail cell
It got my aunties thinking they failed
A lot’a my uncles dipped & they bailed
Cuz’ didn’t make bail

Na batla chelate
Ka di rekere
Dripping like like a spethlele
Ya di ‘kelme
Ska mamela di menemene
Le bo “vele vele”
Ne o bhabha jaka pele pele
Nou wa bekezel’
