Celebrate the freedom of Mandela, celebrate today!
Celebrate! Come on!

Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!

On the 11th day of February 1990
I was glad to be alive and able to see
Nelson Mandela walking proud and free
after 27 years in captivity.

Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!

In this world we're living in so many things are changing.
People are now fighting for what they believe in.
Hand in hand woman and man march against the system.
And their telling all their leaders to do the right thing, yeah!
Do the right thing! Do the right thing! Come on!
Do the right thing! World leaders! Do the right thing! Come on!

Celebrate!
Celebrate! Come on! Come on! Come on!
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!

Amandla! Power to the people! Amandla awe tu!
Amandla! Power to the people! Amandla awe tu!
Amandla! Power to the people! Amandla awe tu!
Amandla! Power to the people! Amandla awe tu!

Now the struggle isn't over, no, the struggle's just begun.
And the fight against apart-hate must go on & on & on!
'Cause equal rights and justice should apply to everyone.
And if it don't then there is something definitely wrong.
So freedom fighters near and far, make room cause here I come!
And I ain't gonna stop, ain't gonna give it up, until the battle's won.
We want black and white to all unite together as one,
'cause united we stand but divided we are done.
So all South Africans, come on, hear me when I sing,
'cause my message to all of you is never give in!
In the fight against evil, goodness will win!
And if you agree then you are free to join in and...

Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today! Come on!

Celebrate! Come on! Come on! Come on!
Celebrate! Come on each and everyone!
Celebrate! Come on! Come on! Come on!
Celebrate! Come on! Come on!

Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!
Celebrate! The freedom of Mandela!
Celebrate! Celebrate today!

Celebrate!
Celebrate!
Celebrate!
Celebrate!
