Sun City Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Sun City" (live from East Rutherford)

I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Yeah hey hey
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, our sisters in the back 


I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Nona Hendryx, Little Stevie
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Sing it


Our government tells us we're doing all we can 

Ronald, Ronald, what is Ronald Reagan's plan 

Meanwhile people are dying and giving up hope

Well this quiet diplomacy ain't nothing but a joke

I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Say I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City, yeah

South Africa
South Africa
Rubén Blades, Mr. Lou Reed
You gotta sing it
1-2-3-4
1-2-3-4

It’s time to accept our responsibility
Freedom is a privilege, nobody rides for free
Look around the world, baby, it cannot be denied
Why are we always on the wrong side

Say I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Naw naw baby
Sing it
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
Oh no no
Say I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City
I, I, I ain't gonna play Sun City

Thank you, good night
God bless you

(This song is performed by U2, Little Steven, Nona Hendryx, Lou Reed, and Rubén Blades, and can be found on the Released: The Human Rights Concerts - A Conspiracy Of Hope album)
