translated from Xhosa: they call us criminals / call the police / we're closing this party because they're calling us criminals / what are we to do? / why should they stand in our way? / we're the hustlers / why should they stand in our way when we only want to live our lives? / whether you're a Rasta or a thug everybody needs money / whether you are a priest or a student / everybody wants cash / so call the fire brigade / there is a fire / they call us criminals / my friend / I know things are hard / we're struggling together.
