South Side Lyrics

Ah
Welcome to the south side
Welcome to the south side
Check it check it
Stand up
South side
South side
Stand up, come on

Let me walk you through my jungle
The South side of Africa
The home of road accidents gangsters and sex traffickers
Where you could be driving in traffic with some passengers
Innocent by standers get hit with flashes no cameras
You could be in Cape Town and get your bag snatched
By Muslims with AK47s like it's Baghdad
Tired of your life go to the hood they'll end it for you
Get hit with a bullet that wasn't even intended for you
From Eldorado Park Soweto and eGugulethu
If it's not from a bullet the boogyman will come and get you
Cause the good die young in these days
Cause in the south you either die from a gun or it's AIDS
A gun or blade no matter if you running away
The rounds are gonna go through you like a muzzle and gauge
I'm a doctor so I'm not the type of person who'd do it
I'm just speaking of things I've seen in the emergency unit

Welcome to the South side
Where you get clapped just for walking by
Got me hanging by a string
Welcome to the South side
Where you get clapped just for walking by
Got me hanging by a string
Please tell my baby I don't know if I can leave

I've seen so many things that'll make you sick to your stomach
I've been draped in throw up
Treated raped grandmothers
Pulled out a 20 week foetus seen its heart beat hit its chest
The last step before it took its last breath
Welcome to the south where being black is still a factor
But don't have to wave a banner saying black lives matter
Cause police who roam the streets
Well we're one in the same
We all just chasing some paper changing our lives for some change
Cause the white mans winning in a black mans land
No slavery but we still got chains around our hands
From DF Malan, Eugene de Kok's shit
Tell Clive Derby Lewis he can suck my my
His rotting skeleton can
Shooting up a black man
Zulu on my stoep they still put us under tin cans
Squatter camps, townships
It's been our story
While they park their cars in garages of double stories
Saying welcome to the south side

Welcome to the South side
Where you get clapped just for walking by
Got me hanging by a string
Welcome to the South side
Where you get clapped just for walking by
Got me hanging by a string
Please tell my baby I don't know if I can leave

Welcome to the south side
South side
Man you know it's the rough side
Rough side
Welcome to the south side
South side
You know it's the rough side
Rough side
Welcome to the south side
South side
Man you know it's the rough side
Rough side
Welcome to the south side
South side
