You're my favourite politician If it weren't for you I wouldn't be me If it weren't for you I wouldn't be free to sing this song in the clouds with wings on my back to my Muttie below crying for her son who went to your war If it weren't for you I wouldn't be at all If it weren't for you I wouldn't be at all You're my dream politician You did the good things, you did the bold things You took the brave decisions Now I'm on a beach in another green world left my Mother on Earth to hide from the drones that target the heat from her heart the whites of her eyes remain unseen seeing into the life of things seeing into the light of... And it's an empty glass toast Empty Glass toast Empty Glass toast Do you trust your politicians Are they the voice you wanted the fight you need to take down the enemies of our dream to perish under one law, one god, one tongue, one brain no mind and terror for all if it weren't for them we'd having a ball if it weren't for them we'd having a ball if it weren't for them... And it's an empty glass toast Empty Glass toast Empty Glass toast

Chasing the sun to Muizenberg, tracing out waves in Kalk Bay Under blue skies I dream you through, salt is sweet on your skin my dear Bulldozin Bergies off the beach again, Kalkies diners order snoek and chips Languid Sundays on a Simonstown yacht, clouds are growing off Table Top The Portofino swings from dusk till dawn, guitars playing all day long Shooting the breeze on the rocks below, a perfect coffee at Lino's Under the skies in the year of the wind, Sifu Roy plays another song Jammin with the moon in Beaverlac, Fresh African water from camp-site taps Walking barefoot to Danger Beach The tide is rising on the Brass Bell Bar catch of the day at the fishing fleet dock drive to Kommetjie in a rusty car Coon dancin on the pier to a banjo's rapid strum Beaded wire at Olympia's door heart-shaped keyrings yer friends will adore Smilin with all yer shiny whites whales blowin winter tide Speakin with a Xhosa tongue g'day gets you... … the sun to Muizenberg, tracing out waves in Kalk Bay Under blue skies I dream you through, salt is sweet on your skin my dear Chasing the sun to Muizenberg, tracing out waves in Kalk Bay Under blue skies I dream you through, salt is sweet on your skin my dear
