Get Out of My Life, She Sang

Read Time:2 Minute, 0 Second

I woke up at 3 am this morning. 

No, it was not one of those …., I woke up early this morning. I don’t think you heard me. Well, I had to go and pee, izinto zoshukela bangani. 

Anyway…, Back embhedeni, I could not sleep, and within a minute or so…, Boom!I got attacked. It was an assault from that mysterious alien stuff that musicians of old liked to claim attacked them…, You see, there was a boom-boom. Yeah, twice as nice. It emanated from my ♥ and rose to the throat. The lips parted. Softly the sound boomed…, 

Boom…, boom-boom-boom

Bhudu dum-dum-dum–dum-dum-dum-dum

Thath’ umthwalo wakho ugoduke

Qoqa amanikiniki akho uhambe

Mina seng’khathele imikhuba yakho

Phela manje uphul’ moya nenhliziyo yam’

Aw’bhek’ imikhuba yakho, yokudlal’ ama 2000

Uleth’ ukufa la ekhaya

As’lal’ ebusuku ubuthakath’ balama 2000

Yes, it is a song from the heart and soul, not of Jozi, but of a woman. She had good intentions of building a family when she married him. As they say – she had come into his life, his clan ukuzokukhulisa isibongo. Two boys and a girl later, she had delivered on some of what got expected of her. But now, the man she gave herself to was doing things tantamount to a dereliction of duty to her. The actions of a man she formed a union with were threatening to dismantle the family. 

He was bringing imikhuba ekhaya. Yes, it is a sad song for my age group, about my age group. The story goes that the 40 plus-year-olds, abo life troubles begin at fourty are into ama2000, girls half their age.I also hear the generation born in the 90s and early 2000s, females, in particular…, 

Yes, ama Betty 15 are into ricking. That is to say, Betty 15s are not hesitant to go to isangoma for intando, umuthi, ubheka futhi uzwe mina ngedwa. Is it true, nina bo Betty 15? Anyways…,

Boom…, boom-boom-boom

Bhudu dum-dum-dum–dum-dum-dum-dum

Thath’ umthwalo wakho ugoduke

Qoqa amanikiniki akho uhambe

Mina seng’khathele imikhuba yakho

Phela manje uphul’ moya nenhliziyo yam

Aw’bhek’ imisebenzi yakho, Yokudlal’ ama 2000

Uleth’ ukufa la ekhaya

As’lal’ ebusuku ubuthakath’ balama 2000 (repeat)

I don’t know…, 

Siphokazi Maraqana Mohapi, do you think you can give this song your professional vocal magic touch?  Suthukazi Arozi, Mimi Mtshali, Phinda Mtya Matlala…,
