Waptrick Eddie Grant - Give Me Hope Johanna Song Lyrics

  • Well Jo'anna she runs a 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 a brother in a subjection

    But maybe pressure can make Jo'anna see

    How everybody could a live as one

    [chorus:]

    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, any shape of guns

    While every mother in black Soweto fears

    The killing of another son

    Sneakin' across all the neighbours' borders

    Now and again having little fun

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

    Is dang'rous to ev'ryone

    [chorus]

    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

    [chorus]

    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 wanna know if you're blind Jo'anna

    If you wanna hear the sound of drums

    Can't you see that the tide is turning

    Oh don't make me wait till the morning come

    [chorus]
