Home   |         NEW: (hypothetically starring) VIC REEVES as LUKE SKYWALKER .. in "Waiting for Godot, the hollywood version".

With respect for the victims of white supremacist Weapons of Mass Destruction at Hiroshima and Nagasaki last century. Something in the name of Palestine, a reminder of a great statement against apartheid.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Well Jo'anna she runs the country

She runs in Durban and the Transvaal

She makes a few of her people happy, oh

She don't care about the rest at all.

She's got a system they call apartheid

It keeps her brother in a subjection

But maybe pressure can make Jo'anna see

How everybody could a live as one.



Oh gimme hope, Jo'anna

Hope, Jo'anna

Gimme hope, Jo'anna

'Fore the morning come

Gimme hope, Jo'anna

Hope, Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come.



I hear she make all the golden money

To buy new weapons, in the shape of guns

While every mother in black Soweto fears

The killing of another son.



Sneakin' across all the neighbors' borders

Now and again having little fun

She doesn't care if the fun and games she play

Is dangerous to everyone.



She's got supporters in high up places

Who turn their heads to the city sun

Jo'anna give them the fancy money

Oh to tempt anyone who'd come

She even knows how to swing opinion

In every magazine and the journals

For every bad move that this Jo'anna makes

They got a good explanation.



Even the preacher who works for Jesus

The Archbishop who's a peaceful man

Together say that the freedom fighters

Will overcome the very strong.



I want to know if you're blind Jo'anna

If you want to hear the sound of drums

Can't you see that the tide is turning

Oh don't make me wait till the morning come.
