"[O]ne of the reasons I'm interested in the principle of surrender, one of the reasons I'm interested in a man of peace like Martin Luther King, is that I'm the opposite."

"Sun City"

Ahh, Sun City, Sun City 
South Africa, South Africa 

We're rockers and rappers united and strong 
We're here to talk about South Africa we don't like what's going on
Tell it
It's time for some justice it's time for the truth
Speak it
We've realized there's only one thing we can do 

We gotta say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
Oh no no no no 
I, I, oh I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
Everybody say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
Not for me
I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City
Relocation to phony homelands 
Separation of families I can't understand 
23 million can't vote because they're black 
We're stabbing our brothers and sisters in the back 

We're gonna say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
We're gonna say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City
Our government tells us we're doing all we can 
Constructive Engagement is Ronald Reagan's plan 
Meanwhile people are dying and giving up hope 
Well this quiet diplomacy ain't nothing but a joke

We're gonna say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
I ain't gonna play no, no 
We're gonna say I, I, I ain't gonna play
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
Don't wanna play
Don't wanna play
Don't wanna play
It's time to accept our responsibility 
Freedom is a privilege, nobody rides for free 
Look around the world baby, it cannot be denied 
Can't somebody tell me why are we always on the wrong side 

I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City 
Won't someone tell me now 
'Cause I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City
Boputhuswana is far away 
But we know it's in South Africa no matter what they say
You can't buy me, I don't care what you pay 
Don't ask me Sun City 'cause I ain't gonna play 

We gotta say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
We're not gonna play Sun City
Let me hear you say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City
I don't want to play Sun City

Relocation to phony homelands 
Separation of families I can't understand 
23 million can't vote because they're black 
We're stabbing our brothers and our sisters in the back

Gotta say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City
Yeah, well well well I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
No no no no no 
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City 
Say it, baby, say I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
I said I, I, I
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
No no no no no 
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City 
It ain't that far away, yeah 
It ain't that far away, Sun City 
Don't go, no no no no no no no 
Sun, Sun City, Sun City 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Ain't gonna play Sun City 
Brothers and sisters being stabbed in the back, yeah 
Hey, hey, yeah, yeah
Hey, hey, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Not gonna play Sun City
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
