Wonder who we were going to be me and you…
This education is for me and you
This future is for me and you
My life, my happiness and yours too
I use to ask me, myself and I
Watching to world my teeth grinds very hard
Wonder who we were going to be me and you…

I Sleep but I didn't felt sleepy how could
I sleep while the tribe of Shaka is in the war
But the war, I am not interested because me and
War is like a bull and a bull in one kraal
I want to drink a redbull instead to give me those wings,
to fly with education.

The man of the world the man of trouble makers.
I mean this man who release South Africa
Doctor nelson Mandela recognize education
This burden was taken by him to our shoulders
we should show them what it mean to be educated
We haven't get it long time ago I was not there but,
I feel like I was one of them
They cry they fight they strike, they sacrifice with their lives,
they were not satisfied,
With their future and they were killed they were arrested

But now we are enjoying the fruit of education
that is red of love but like their blood that split when they being killed
They aim higher education and they get to the nearest.
Ok it fine I see they say there is no gain without pain,
that why they pay for us we gain yes again.
This became a step to step look at it,
it going forward ok, I know it because it from the fish species
it always going forward without backward

Wonder who we were going to be me and you
But now we have the future to talk on,
plug on all the books, make it booking for you
an accommodation of the future
I didn't know how I can improve my life but now it clear,
the life is easier but it because of it
The burden is burning

Positive attitude + hard work = success,
no sunset without sunrise and sunshine
Wonder who we were going to be me and you
Without being educated, let us being dedicated,
addicted so that we will be graduated
This what I mean education is the key to success
it open gates for you and me too
Love this life not to hates this life
because it nothing can beats this, touch this education
Who were we going to be without education?
