there is something you should know about me
after I've gone you must be strong. I have to disappear
a major business deal fell though
i can't stay here
something went wrong
at ESKOM - take care of the kids
all this I have done for you ,my dear,
I took what I could
our life will be good
join me when you can

rotten to the core corrupt
the apple of your eye
can't make ends meet can't satisfy
can't deny connections with the east
4 million rand stashed away for better days
away from home
pull a sheet across your eyes
don't pretend to be surprised
take what you want
put it in a suitcase head for Argentine
east west south is best
please don't send me back to Fraud City

then into "Golden Rendezvous Pt2"
see it a t a cinema near you
the bureau of information guarantees
our movies success
